The two big hitters in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 are also the biggest hits on social media platform Twitter. Kolkata Knight Riders’ Andre Russell and Hardik Pandya have reigned supreme on Twitter.
Andre Russell (@Russell12A) and Hardik Pandya (@hardikpandya7) were the stars of week 5 in #IPL2019. Some outrageous hitting by the duo kept fans on the edge and Twitter buzzing, Twitter has stated in a Press release.
Russell’s 40-ball 80* took KKR to a daunting 232/2. That knock should’ve sealed the match, but things got close courtesy Pandya’s breathtaking 34-ball 91. In the end Kolkata clinched the win, but fans on Twitter couldn’t stop talking about it.
