IPL 2024: “Harshit told me he wanted last over…”, KKR’s Russell

IPL 2024: "Harshit told me he wanted last over...", KKR's Russell

Following his side’s four run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) all-rounder Andre Russell said that pacer Harshit Rana wanted the last over and lauded the young pacer for coming back well after conceding a six while defending 13 runs in the final over.

Despite an all-round show by Russell, SRH’s Heinrich Klaasen threatened to ruin KKR’s party and dented the Rs 24-plus crore prize-tagged Mitchell Starc’s IPL comeback with some massive sixes. But a win was not meant to be for SRH as Harshit managed to keep his composure and defended 13 runs in the last over despite Klaasen hitting him for a massive six early on. Harshit went on to pick up two wickets, including that off Klaasen.

Following the match, Russell, crowned Player of Match for his fifty and two wickets, said in the presentation, “Shows a lot about his (Harshit) character. He told me he wanted the last over, he claimed it and he came back strong after the first ball went for six.”
