When Andre Russell is on charge, you can only expect him to make all the headlines by unleashing hell against his opposition's bowlers. 

Such an incident took place on Monday (July 8) when Russell, representing Los Angeles Knight Riders, were in action against San Francisco Unicorns in Match 4 of the Major League Cricket (MLC) 2024 at Grand Prairie Stadium, Dallas.

The six came during the 20th over of Knight Riders' innings when Haris Rauf took the ball. The star Pakistan pacer bowled a short delivery, and Russell waited for it before sending it to the orbit.

The ball sailed over the wide long-on, and in the process, the distance it got as far as 107 meters. Of course, it was the longest six of the season by then.

Sitting in the dugout, Shakib Al Hasan and many LAKR teammates could not believe what they just saw. Shakib, in fact, was caught hiding his face while being completely awed by the sensational hit.

However, Russell's heroics (40* off 25 balls) went in vain, as San Francisco Unicorns saw off a 166-run target in just 15.2 overs with six wickets in hand.
