Watch: KKR Celebrates Andre Russell’s Birthday Party After Win Over DC

The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) contingent were in high spirits as they celebrated star all-rounder Andre Russell’s birthday following a comprehensive triumph over the Delhi Capitals (DC) in IPL 2024 action. The Shreyas Iyer-led side succumbed to KKR’s dominance, conceding a seven-wicket defeat at Eden Gardens, marking KKR’s sixth win from nine games this season.

DC, opting to bat first after winning the toss, posted 153/9 in their allotted 20 overs. Despite a challenging night for DC, Kuldeep Yadav’s resilient knock of 35* (26) salvaged a respectable score for the team. However, KKR’s batting prowess proved too much for DC’s bowling attack, as they chased down the target with ease in just 16.3 overs.

Opener Phil Salt set the stage for KKR’s victory with a scintillating half-century, scoring 68 runs. Shreyas Iyer (33*) and Venkatesh Iyer (26*) ensured there were no hiccups in the chase, guiding KKR to a comfortable win.

Although birthday boy Andre Russell had a quiet outing in the match, bowling just one over and not getting a chance to bat, the celebrations in the KKR camp were anything but subdued. The Kolkata franchise shared glimpses of the festivities on their official Instagram handle, showcasing Russell’s birthday bash after their resounding victory over the Delhi Capitals. KKR co-owner Shah Rukh Khan graced the occasion, joining in the revelry and posing for pictures with Andre Russell, adding to the jubilant atmosphere in the team’s camp.
