Andre Russell hits 14-ball fifty in Lanka Premier League as Colombo Kings score record 96 in five overs

Andre Russell hammered a 14-ball fifty as Colombo Kings smashed a record 96 runs from five overs in a staggering rain-shortened Lanka Premier League clash against Galle Gladiators.

Russell’s half-century was the joint fifth-fastest in the history of T20 cricket, only bettered by 12-ball efforts for fellow West Indian Chris Gayle, India’s Yuvraj Singh and Afghanistan’s Hazratullah Zazai and former England batsman Marcus Trescothick’s 13-ball onslaught for Somerset.
