Chris Lynn flops and Andre Russell delivers


Big-hitting Queenslander Chris Lynn fell for a five-ball duck as Kolkata Knight Riders slumped to a seven-wicket IPL hammering against the Chennai Super Kings.

The much-anticipated top-of-the-table clash failed to ignite as the visiting side struggled from the opening over.

Lynn was trapped lbw by Deepak Chahar and his departure led to a top-order collapse as the Knight Riders were reduced to 6-47.

That’s when on-fire Andre Russell once again delivered with an unbeaten 50 that helped his side limp to 9-108.

Russell now has 257 runs at 128.50 this season, and is scoring at a strike rate of 212.39.

Former Australia Test all-rounder Shane Watson clubbed 17 from nine balls to get the Super Kings off to a strong start in reply.

He departed soon after though, smashing Sunil Narine to Piyush Chawla at mid-wicket where he was caught.

But South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis’ calm 45 not out at just over a run a ball steered the Super Kings to an emphatic victory with 16 balls to spare.

The win consolidated the Super Kings’ lead at the top of the IPL table.
