Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Andre Russell bemoaned the failure of their big-hitters to get the team across the line against Mumbai Indians but backed the two-time champions to bounce back in the Indian Premier League. Kolkata, chasing 153, were cruising at 84-1 in the 11th over but Eoin Morgan’s side then paid the price for over-aggression and finished on 142-7 on Tuesday. Russell managed nine runs before giving a return catch to Trent Boult, who bowled a tidy final over. “As a new batter, to come in and hit from ball one is very challenging,” Russell said. “We definitely feel disappointed but at the end of the day it’s not the end of the road,” Russell said.
