In a rain-delayed IPL 2024 clash between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Mumbai Indians (MI) at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, Mumbai Indians won the toss and chose to bowl.

Their decision paid off early as Philip Salt and Sunil Narine were dismissed cheaply, leaving KKR at 77/4 after 8.1 overs.

Watch: Andre Russell's Massive Six To Chawla Here

However, the entrance of Andre Russell shifted the momentum. Facing Piyush Chawla in the ninth over, Russell made his intentions clear with a massive six, launching the ball over long-on. Chawla's overpitched delivery was punished as Russell got under it and powered it for a flat maximum, signaling his aggressive approach.

At the time of writing, KKR has reached 157/7 in 16 overs, with Nitish Rana partnering Russell, both scoring swiftly. Russell's explosive six to Chawla injected vitality into KKR's innings, setting the stage for a potentially high-scoring affair despite the rain interruptions.

Cricket fans are eagerly anticipating more fireworks from Hardik Pandya and company as the Mumbai innings progresses.
