Andre Russell’s giant sixer hits security guard in CPL

An impressive half-century from skipper Chris Gayle (51) and a blistering 34 from Andre Russell set up a comprehensive win for the Jamaica Tallawahs against the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots in the 4th match of the 2016 Caribbean Premier League (CPL). But what made the headlines most was Russell’s massive six which eventually hit a security guard who was posted just ahead of the stands and was facing the crowd.

The Tallawahs were on 135/5 in 18.2 over when Russell despatched a Krishmar Santokie delivery for an over boundary. It’s a low full toss outside the off stump but was well in Russell’s range and he smashed it over long-on. The ball could have crashed into the concrete but it sadly met the security guard who was standing there and hit her on the left ear. The batsman also realized it and had his hands on his head.

Meanwhile, Another fine bowling display for the Patriots’ left arm wrist spinner Tabraiz Shamsi was not enough for the home side who lost wickets in regular interval throughout their chase.

While Gayle was on a mission to make his place as the leading Twenty20 run-scorer of all time, the rest of the Tallawahs’ top order struggled. Kumar Sangakkara was the only other batsman to find any kind of fluidity in the first half of the innings and he was looking dangerous before a mix up with Gayle saw him run out for 26.

Unfortunately for the Tallawahs no sooner had Gayle got to fifty he got out, skewing a ball from Thisara Perera to the third man for 51. That meant the responsibility for leading the Jamaican side to a challenging total fell to vice-captain Andre Russell and the powerful all-rounder didn’t disappoint as he blasted his way to 34 from 20 balls in an innings that included three sixes. Tallawahs finished the innings with 153 for 7.
