The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) players and support staff arrive in Visakhapatnam on Sunday ahead of their IPL 2024 match against Delhi Capitals (DC) on Wednesday. The Shreyas Iyer-led side have emerged as one of the early pace setters in the IPL points table, having won both of their games so far. On Friday, KKR defeated Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in a one-side encounter. They now have four points from two matches and occupy the second spot in the points table.

En route to Vizag, the KKR players were seen having a good time on the flight, especially Rinku Singh and Andre Russell.

Rinku was seen singing ‘Lutt Putt Gaya’ from the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Bollywood movie ‘Dunki’.

Rinku told the videographer to ask Russell to sing the song. However, Russell replied,” You don’t sing that song, it’s my song.”

As soon as Russell started singing the song, everyone burst out of laughter, including Rinku, who seemed to have mocked the West Indies all-rounder for his accent.

After the win against RCB, KKR captain Iyer praised Russell and Sunil Narine and called them “useful and phenomenal” assets of the franchise.

Both Narine and Russell displayed a scintillitating performance for KKR. With the ball, Narine scalped one wicket, meanwhile, Russell picked up two.

On the other hand, during the run chase, Narine opened for the Kolkata-based franchise along with Philip Salt, and scored a magnificient 47 runs from 22 balls at a strike rate of 213.64. He was also named the ‘Player of the Match’.

“You can’t choose because you’re talking about bowling at the death on one end and opening on the other. They’re both very useful and phenomenal assets for the team because if they have a rough showing with the ball, they can make it up with the bat. This is a big positive for our team,” Iyer was quoted in a release from JioCinema as saying.
