Lynn smashes six out of the stadium 'into orbit'


//

Kolkata Knight Riders banked their third Indian Premier League win of the campaign as a swashbuckling innings from Andre Russell and Chris Lynn powered them to a five-wicket victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore in Bengaluru.

West Indies' star Russell smashed seven sixes in his stunning 13-ball 48 not out to steer Kolkata home, following on from earlier good work by Australian opener Chris Lynn, who cracked a fine 31-ball 43, including four fours.

One six Lynn hit even went all the way out of the stadium.

"That's gone. I think that's gone out of the stadium!" commentators said.

"Oh he connected with that alright!

"Off the middle, it's gone into orbit! Gone, gone gone!"

Virat Kohli was impressed by Russell's unbelievable knock.

"The last four overs, the way we bowled, we deserve to lose. If you bowl with not enough bravery in the crunch overs, then you will always struggle against power-hitters like Russell," Kohli said.

"We cracked a bit under pressure, and that’s the only story. Had we got 20-25 more, maybe it would have helped. But if you can’t defend 75 in the last four overs, then I don’t know if you can defend 100.

"It’s been a disappointing season, but we have to believe we can turn things around."

Robbie Uthappa (33) and Nitish Rana (37) also added useful contributions as the Knight Riders chased down the Challengers 205-3.

Australia all-rounder Marcus Stoinis had earlier chipped in with an unbeaten 28 for the hosts, adding to a century partnership between Virat Kohli (84) - which saw the India captain overhaul Chennai's Suresh Raina to become the leading run-scorer in IPL with 5,110 runs in 160 innings - and South African veteran AB de Villiers (63).

But that total ultimately proved insufficient as the Royal Challengers - sparked by Russell's stunning 27-minute cameo with the bat - chalked off the runs they needed to leave Bangalore winless after five matches.
