KKR's Andre Russell doesn't shy away from any opportunity to strike, especially when it comes to dismissing Australia's  'Hulk', Marcus Stoinis. Adding another jewel to his crown once again, Russell scalped the wicket of Stoinis for the fifth time in T20 history at the Ekana Stadium, Lucknow during the KKR vs LSG clash.

On the very first ball of the ninth over, Russell bowled a back of a length delivery outside the off-stump. Stoinis swung across the line of ball, looking to hit it towards the leg side but unfortunately the outer half of his bat hit the ball and it flew straight towards Harshit Rana who was carefully stationed at point. He safely took the catch in his hands, dismissing Marcus Stoinis for 36 runs off 21.

The match looks to be well in KKR's favour especially considering the splendid form of all the bowlers. They are giving LSG a run for their money, and it shows. In the first innings, Shreyas Iyer's Knights set up a mammoth total of 236 runs for the home-team to chase. LSG's start seemed too rusty as they lost Arshin Kulkarni for just 9 runs and following that KL Rahul.

At the time of writing, LSG is at 107/5.
