Bhuvneshwar Kumar Heaps Praise On Andre Russell
Speaking to Bhuvneshwar for ESPNCricinfo, veteran Indian commentator, Deep Dasgupta asked Bhuvi, “If you have to bowl the last over of the final of the T20 world cup 2021 and Andre Russell is on the crease and you have 14 runs to defend in the final over, how will you deal with him?”
Bhuvneshwar said,” First of all it is important as to which ground is the game being played on. Russell is a very powerful player and his mishits even travel the distance, we saw it in the last IPL. So although you do not want it, but you always hope that he misses the ball.”

“We targeted Russell’s weakness in the last IPL which is bowling on his legs, a lot of bowlers tried it. But even while falling to the ground, he struck the ball with such power that all those balls went beyond the boundary. He is such a great player against whom luck matters a lot,” Bhuvneshwar Kumar added.
“I remember that in the first match of the last IPL, I was leading the Hyderabad franchise and he smashed 52 runs in the last three overs. He absolutely smacked the SRH bowlers and he had a great season in that edition. However, all the seasons might not go on to prove the same. S hopefully, the world cup final season for him isn’t that good,” added Bhuvi.
