Watch: Andre Russell bowled AB de Villiers for a golden duck as Kolkata Knight Riders took on Royal Challengers Bangalore in Abu Dhabi on Monday in the 2021 IPL.

While RCB captain Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bat first, his side were routed for 92 with an over to spare as KKR’s bowlers ran through the batting line-up.

A key contributor to the KKR bowling effort was Russell, who finished with figures of 3-9 from three overs and claimed the prized wicket of former South Africa batsman de Villiers.


The 37-year-old walked out to bat with his side 52-3 in the ninth over, but was on his way back just moments later as Russell bowled a full-length delivery that honed in on de Villiers’ left foot before rattling the stumps.
