The 12th edition of IPL began early this year because of the upcoming World cup. In the first two weeks, we have already witnessed some excellent cricket in the best franchise tournament.
One of the star of this season so far is Kolkata Knight Riders’ Andre Russell. The big Jamaican has been effortlessly hitting the ball out of the park. He is in such a rampage that he is single-handedly winning the games for his team.
The recent example is the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. When Andre Russell came to bat, KKR needed 53 runs of 16 balls. The power-hitter scored 48 off just 13 balls with the help of 7 huge sixes and won the game for KKR with 5 balls to spare.
Before bowling against a player of such calibre, one should always known his weakness. Delhi Capitals’ Kagiso Rabada showed that bowling yorker length to Russell can stop him. Let us look at five bowlers who can stop Russell’s carnage.

1. Kagiso Rabada
Along with both pace and bounce, Rabada has the ability to hit yorkers at will. In the tenth match between DC and KKR, the South African found the Achilles heel of Russell during the super over.
The 23-year-old bowler first denied the Windies all-rounder any room to free his arms. He then clean bowled Russell with a perfect yorker which ended at the base of the stumps. He showed that a good yorker can make the 30-year-old Russell uncomfortable on the pitch.
