On Saturday, September 5, the Barbados Tridents clashed against the Jamaica Tallawahs in the 28th match of the tournament. During the course of the match, cricketers Rashid Khan and Andre Russell got involved in a friendly banter after the latter enjoyed a lucky escape while batting at the crease.

Rashid Khan vs Andre Russell in the CPL 2020

In the match, the Jamaica Tallawahs batted first and posted 161-4 on the back of some power hitting by Andre Russell. The dynamic all-rounder blasted 54 from just 28 balls with four fours and five sixes. However, during his stay at the crease, Andre Russell survived a wrong’un from Barbados Tridents’ Rashid Khan. The incident occurred in the 17th over where Khan managed to clip the off-stump but the bails remained unfazed.

Later, Andre Russell imitated Rashid Khan’s wicket-taking celebration only to evoke laughter from the seasoned Afghanistan spinner. Khan laughingly tried to kick the West Indian all-rounder and the duo fist-bumped each other afterwards. Interestingly, it was Rashid Khan himself who dismissed Andre Russell a while later. Meanwhile, Russell’s 28-ball 54 went in vain as the Barbados Tridents ended up overhauling Jamaica Tallawahs’ 161-4 with eight balls to spare.
