Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Andre Dwayne Russell celebrated his 28th birthday in India with his teammates, who made sure that the Jamaican had his cake and ate it too

Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Andre Dwayne Russell celebrated his 28th birthday in India on Friday. And unlike back home in Jamaica, his KKR teammate celebrated the event in a slightly unusual way -- by putting cake on Russell's face.

Andre Russell posted the image on Instagram with the caption: "Another cake face in India loving it!(sic)"

He also tweeted about the experience, joking that he hated cakes in India, since unlike in Jamaica where people eat cake, in India people (read teammates) put it all over one's face face and head.

He though ended by saying that he loved the IPL and India.

The Jamaican all-rounder has had an ordinary IPL 2016 till now having scored only 77 from the six matches with a highest score of 36 at an aaverage of 19.25 and strikerate of 157.14. As a bowler, he has claimed 5 wickets, having given away 157 runs with a best performance of 3/24.

KKR also tweeted with the caption: "The muscle man celebrates his birthday, the way every birthday should be celebrated!"

Andre Russell had earlier posted an image of himself holding two glasses of cold brewskies to celebrate his birthday.

The image was captioned: "It's my birthday so am gonna enjoy it!! Giving God thanks for a another year of life and success and praying for his blessings to keep me safe from all harms and danger!"
