Andre Russell got a chair broken after a brutal hit in KKR nets ahead of their next match of IPL 2022. 
 
Andre Russell's brutal hit proved too powerful for the chair.

Known for his six-hitting, Andre Russell unleashed his wrath on the chair present at the venue for KKR's practise session. 

Andre Russell's brutal power-hitting proved too powerful for a chair present at the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) nets, with the big-built Jamaican hammering the ball onto the furniture and making a big hole in it. 

In preparations for KKR's next league-stage encounter of IPL 2022 versus the Delhi Capitals (DC) on Thursday (April 28), Russell was seen putting his dangerous downswing to test in a clip posted over his team's official Twitter handle. 

In the clip, one can see that one of the deliveries hammered for six through the on-side by the West Indian went onto thump into a chair present at the side of the boundary line and broke the upper part of it, creating a massive hole. 

The KKR franchise posted the clip to engage with their fans on Monday (April 25) evening, reinforcing Andre Russell's #MuscleImpact on the ball and subsequently the chair.

Practising his six-hitting prowess at the nets ahead of the DC encounter at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, Andre Russell found a delivery in his radar and smashed it to the deep mid-wicket region. 

While the ball presumably sailed over for a big six, a chair present near the sidelines had to face the wrath of Russell's clean hit and had its part broken.

In an amusing sight, a member from the KKR camp can be seen in the clip wondering how come the chair end-up getting such a massive hole, not realising that it was Russell, who thumped a shot too powerful for it.

Known for muscling the ball on and off the field, one can be sure it wasn't the last big hit off the willow of the devastating Andre Russell, who remains integral to KKR's success. 

The experienced West Indies player has been in good form in IPL 2022, averaging 45.40 with a humongous strike-rate of 180.15 for 227 runs from his 8 innings. 

Russell has managed to retain good returns with the bat despite KKR slipping down in the standings over the last few matches of the tournament. They've gone through a four-game losing streak and are placed at seventh in the points table with 3 wins from 8 matches.
