Andre Russell and Hardik Pandya were the stars of week 5 in IPL 2019. Some outrageous hitting by the duo kept fans on the edge and Twitter buzzing. Russell’s 40-ball 80* took Kolkata Knight Riders to a mammoth 232/2 against Mumbai Indians. That knock should’ve sealed the match, but things got close courtesy Pandya’s breathtaking 34-ball 91. In the end KKR clinched the win, but fans on Twitter couldn’t stop talking about it.
