We take you back almost a year to May 5, 2014 when Kolkata Knight Rider's Andre Russell baffled Rajasthan Royals batsman Shane Watson in an IPL 7 match in Ahmedabad.

The KKR seamer delivered the ball after almost pulling out of his run-up which completely bamboozled the Royals skipper.

The West Indian gave the impression that he was not continuing with his third delivery in the 18th over. Watson took his eyes off the ball before, to his astonishment, realising that the ball - a gentle medium-paced delivery - had been bowled.


The Aussie protested with umpire Nigel Llong but he couldn't see what Russell was upto as the bowler was behind him. After some confusion, the ball was counted as a legitimate one.
