‘My country made me…’, an emotional Russell recalled KKR’s favours

Kolkata Knight Riders is the team that has won the IPL trophy twice. The Kolkata team looks to have a mixed performance in the IPL 2023 tournament. Kolkata have won 3 of the 8 matches they have played so far, while they have lost 5 matches. In the absence of regular Kolkata captain Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana is leading the team. The team’s explosive batsman Andre Russell is not looking in a special form in this tournament. He has scored only 108 runs at an average of 18 in 8 matches so far.

Russell’s bat has been quiet for two seasons
In the previous match, Andre Russell bowled four overs for the first time against Royal Challengers Bangalore. In that he spent 29 runs and earned 2 wickets. Russell has been one of the key players in the Kolkata team for the past several years. Russell entered the Kolkata team in 2014. At that time, he left his mark by playing explosive shots. In the 2019 season, Russell scored 510 runs at a strike rate of 204.81. However, he has been battling a knee injury for the past few years.

Calcutta treated
Speaking to Star Sports, Andre Russell talked about his relationship with Kolkata Knight Riders. Russell said, “KKR has done a lot for me over the years. They refer me for proper knee treatment. To be honest, it is very special for me. No other franchise or my country really invests in me that much.”

Speaking further, the all-rounder said, “I am happy here. I don’t see any other team to be a part of this tournament. Because, I have been here for almost 9 years. Being here for so many years, I meet these people. Each year comes closer to them. Even when there is no cricket, I am in touch with Mr Venky (Mysore).”
