New Delhi: Hard-hitting batsman Andre Russell (2) proved really unlucky in the 14th over during Jamaica Tallwahs’ CPL 2020 semi-final match against Trinbago Knight Riders. as he was given a shocker by the on-field umpire on the bowling of Sunil Narine and as a result, he was sent back to the pavilion. He was given out caught at slip but the replays clearly showed that the ball came straight off the pad.
