Andre Russell nailed a perfect yorker to breach AB de Villiers defences, castling the star batter for a rare first-ball duck in the 31st match of IPL 2021 between the Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore. This was de Villiers' sixth golden duck in the IPL, from 163 innings.

The RCB didn’t have the best of starts against KKR - their first game of the IPL 2021 second leg - after Virat Kohli opted to bat first. Kohli was trapped leg-before in the second over and with youngsters Devdutt Padikkal and Srikar Bharat failing to convert their starts, the onus laid on AB de Villiers to do the rescue act. However, the star South African could last just one ball, with Andre Russell delivering a pitch-perfect yorker to castle his stumps.

Russell angled it into the right-hander and the batter went for a whip across the line, only for the ball to hit his back-pad and go on to shatter the stumps. This was de Villiers' sixth golden duck in the IPL.

WHAT A BALL!
