Cricket News: Twitter reactions to Andre Russell fastest ever CPL fifty | Twitter reacts to unbelievable Andre Russell 50 off 14 balls in CPL 2021

Ridiculous. Just ridiculous. Andre Russell was back at his magnificent best, as he slammed the fastest-ever fifty in CPL history against the sorry St. Lucia Kings.

The Kings, who are considered one of the title contenders for this year’s CPL title, simply had no answers. He unleashed 14 balls of carnage to finish what was already looking a dominant Tallawahs total, scoring 1, 6, 0, 1, 6, 6, 4, 6, 6, 6, 0, 0, 4 and 4. In the process, he went past JP Duminy’s record of 15 balls for the fastest CPL fifty, achieved for Barbados against Trinbago Knight Riders in 2019.

Records tumbled everywhere. Tallawahs’ 255/5 was the second-highest score in CPL history. The 120-run margin was the biggest margin in terms of runs in CPL history. Wahab Riaz’s economy rate of 20.33 in his three overs is the second-worst economy rate for a bowler who sent down at least two overs in a CPL game. Carnage.

Unsurprisingly, Andre Russell was player of the match. He said that he came in with a clear frame of mind, and gave credit to his teammates who set up the perfect platform.

“Just got there with a clear frame of mind. Kennar really set the tone for us. Well played by the boys,” Russell said. “As a big hitter, I come low down… Nine times out of ten I think I can do what I did today. They call this ground the bullring. It is a small ground, so once you are off target, you are bound to get hit.
