Andre Russell smashed an explosive 49 to spoil David Warner's IPL comeback as Kolkata Knight Riders pulled off a dramatic six-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday.
Needing 53 runs from last three overs, the powerful Jamaican changed the course of the match with his big-hitting.
He assaulted Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who bled 19 runs in the penultimate over as KKR sealed the 182-run chase with two balls to spare.
In the day's second match, the Delhi Capitals defeated Mumbai Indians by 37 runs after Rishabh Pant's unbeaten 78 off just 27 balls.
The wicketkeeper-batsman hit seven fours and as many sixes, which took Delhi to an imposing 213 for six.
