The Kolkata Knight Riders lost their second game against the Chennai Super Kings at the Chepauk by four wickets. In a match which proved to be a high-scoring nail-biter, Chennai emerged victorious; courtesy a six off the penultimate ball of the innings by ‘Sir’ Ravindra Jadeja. In the first innings, however, KKR posted a massive 202-6 after Andre Russell scored a career-best 88 n.o. off just 36 balls, a knock that included 11 massive sixes.
But the defeat certainly didn’t stop the KKR players from having a bit of fun after a thrilling encounter. KKR’s star of the match, Andre Russell grooved with co-owner Shah Rukh Khan post the game and even shared a video of his dance with the ‘team boss’ on his Instagram account. Seen with him are fellow West Indian Sunil Narine and U-19 cricketers Shubhman Gill and Kamlesh Nagarkoti; who haven’t had a game till now’ but were bought in the auction for a hefty amount.
Sharing this incident on his Instagram account, Russell posted a video where four KKR players can be seen taking some dancing tips from none other than King Khan and guess what? The song is – Chammak Chalo! from his Superhero movie ‘Ra.one’. Shah Rukh Khan can be seen showing the cricketers some dance moves which they could, later on, use on the cricket field. All of them are evidently elated as they try to emulate the moves hilariously.

A new look Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) under their new captain Dinesh Karthik started off their campaign on a winning note against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at their home- the Eden. However, KKR’s flying chariot was grounded by a resurgent CSK at their home ground. KKR conceded defeat despite putting up a massive total on the board. The loss might be a dent in their confidence but when it comes to entertaining the crowd, KKR’s Andre Russell has emerged as the Dwayne Bravo of Kolkata. Russell dazzled with his 36-ball 88 in the fifth match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai which helped KKR post 202/6. While the Caribbeans are well known for their love for music and dance, Russell reflected exactly why!
