There was no stopping <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/andre-russell/">Andre Russell</a>, who just seems to be raising the bar every game. The big Jamaican allrounder bludgeoned a whirlwind 48* off just 13 deliveries to turn the tables against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/royal-challengers-bangalore">Royal Challengers Bangalore</a> (RCB) as <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/kolkata-knight-riders">Kolkata Knight Riders</a> cantered to a five-wicket victory on Friday.

With the form <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/david-warner/">David Warner</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/jonny-bairstow">Jonny Bairstow</a> are in, a 130-run target would have been child s play, but Rabada made the run-chase tough for last year s finalists.

Bairstow though anchored the innings as SRH won by five wickets. <p></p> <p></p>In the first match of the week against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/kings-xi-punjab">Kings XI Punjab</a> on Monday, Rabada scalped two for 32, but it was not meant to be his day as Delhi fell 14 runs short, courtesy <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/sam-curran/">Sam Curran</a> s four wickets. <p></p> <p></p>Rabada, who missed the 2018 edition owing to an injury, has been averaging 15.90 and a good economy of 7.55. Considering the T20 format, he has been striking every 13<sup>th</sup> ball and with such a strike, his potent bowling should augur in the rechristened Delhi side in search of a strike bowler.
