The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) team jumped to the top of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 points table after their second victory in three matches on Friday. KKR managed to comfortably chase the Punjab King’s goal of 138 runs when they secured a thumping victory in the six wicket with more than five overs left at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Two KKR players in particular, Umesh Yadav and Andre Russell, were the stars of the show. While Umesh demolished the PBKS battle with a four-wicket haul, Russell demonstrated his extraterrestrial skills to remain undefeated at 70 runs on just 31 balls. Looking at this versatile dominant performance from these star players, KKR posted a hilarious meme from the movie ‘Andaaz Apna Apna’ to congratulate Umesh for recording numbers of 4/23 in four overs, which also included a virgin.

The post was titled “Kya khiladi hai Umesh” and had the likes of movie stars Raveena Tandon, Karishma Kapoor and Aamir Khan with a Hindi reply from the movie: “Ya Jhakaas, shabas more cheetey, shabash”.

Umesh dismissed PBKS skipper Mayank Agarwal, Liam Livingstone, Harpreet Brar and Rahul Chahar for hitting their four first-class wickets.

Umesh’s exceptional performance also helped him take the lead in the Purple Cap race. With eight expulsions already in the tournament, he tops the list of wicket-takers.


On the other hand, Russell’s brilliant knock also helped him get the Orange Cap with 95 runs in three games.

KKR will next meet the Mumbai Indians (MI) on April 6 at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.
