New Delhi: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) had a forgetful Indian Premier League (IPL) season this year. The team failed to make it to the IPL 2022 playoffs but their hard-hitting explosive batter Andre Russell left fans mesmerized with his performance. The all-rounder did an amazing job for Kolkata both with the bat and ball. Two-time IPL winners KKR retained Russell for INR 12 crores in IPL 2022 Mega Auction. After the end of this season, Russell has awarded himself with a highly expensive gift. He bought himself a Mercedes-Benz AMG car.
Russell took to Instagram to share the first look of his new car. In the video, Russell can be seen entering his car. He wrote in the caption accompanying this video, ‘I always dream big! Dreams become reality with hard work and sacrifice. God is good.’ More than two lakh people have seen this video so far.
As per several media reports, the cost of Russell’s brand new luxury car is estimated to be around INR 2 crore. From India’s Suryakumar Yadav to Chris Gayle and Darren Sammy, Russell is getting congratulatory messages from all over the world.
Talking about Russell’s IPL 2022 outing, the 34-year-old took 17 wickets in addition to scoring 335 runs at a strike rate of 174.5 for KKR in IPL 2022. He won many matches for Kolkata on his own. Despite this, Kolkata could not reach the knockout stage this season.
