Andre Russell felt “awesome” whereas hitting these eight monster sixes in opposition to Punjab Kings as he at all times knew what he wanted to do when he walked in with KKR’s rating studying 51 for 4. Russell scored an unbeaten 70 off 31 balls and what appeared like a difficult chase at one level resulted in an anti-climax as the massive Jamaican muscled the maximums into the stands. “Feeling awesome, this is the reason why we play the game. In that position, I know what I can do,” Russell mentioned after the match.

“So we determined to take cost from one finish and look to get singles from the opposite finish. Chahar was bowling extraordinarily properly, it was gripping as properly. We did not wish to take a lot likelihood in opposition to him. We knew it’d get simpler. I’m going to say one (when requested what number of he obtained off the center).” Russell isn’t bowling a lot and also suffered a shoulder niggle in the last game but is happy if skipper Shreyas Iyer wants him to do so.
“I’m comfortable to do regardless of the staff requires. I’m seeking to bowl within the demise. If the captain desires me to bowl one within the powerplay, I’m very happy to try this however we now have a very good quantity of bowlers. We have a couple of guys that may truly chip in a single or two as properly.
“I know in some games I won’t be bowling four but if at least I bowl two overs, I can feel a part of the game and feel like an all-rounder. These things do happen, some games it’s gonna be easy and I may not bowl a ball.”
