IPL 2021 | SC’s Sedentary Review: KKR vs RR - Morris and Samson help RR bulldoze horrendous KKR 

KKR, who had re-ignited hopes of a comeback in the tournament after a strong fight back in the last game, were back to their usual-self - being sloppy - as they struggled to 133 runs in the first innings. After that, it was a captain's knock from Samson, which helped Rajasthan win the game easily.

IPL 2021 | SC’s Sedentary Review: CSK vs KKR - Chennai survive late KKR onslaught to go top of the table

Chennai Super Kings survived a late onslaught from the trio of Russell, DK and Cummins to script their third consecutive win of the season and go top of the IPL 2021 standings. A 100-run win seemed on the cards at one stage, but some monstrous hitting from KKR’s lower-order gave CSK a mighty scare.

Could you imagine racing to 54 off 21 balls and single-handedly keeping your side’s hopes alive only to…….be dismissed by a LEAVE? Andre Russell’s best IPL knock in two years came to the most anti-climatic end as the Jamaican left a straight ball from Sam Curran, only to see his stumps get rattled.

Twitter reacts to disinterested and disheartened Andre Russell refusing to run Jamieson out despite batsman giving up

Andre Russell is the kind of cricketer whose attitude, on his bad day, can be questionable. Sometimes he is far too casual and others, he looks like he’s just not giving his 100%. Today the Jamaican took his antics to a whole new level, though, as he outrightly refused to run Kyle Jamieson out.

Kolkata Knight Riders' implosion: A disaster that had ‘inevitable' written all over it 

If Kolkata Knight Riders were a movie, it would be a multi-starrer action franchise that has all the glitz, glamour, money and big stars, yet the best part of which only remains the build up and the promotions. The story of the film ends up lacking substance and the film gets panned every year.
