I Admire Virat Kohli And AB de Villiers After Chris Gayle – Andre Russell
Andre Russell has made the Indian Premier League 2019 as his own. He is delivering goods more often than not to make things fall in place for the team. Meanwhile, in an interview with The Telegraph, Russell revealed that he is a great admirer of Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.
Currently, Russell is busy with his stint for Kolkata Knight Riders. He is delivering those match-changing knocks on a regular basis to send fear down the spine for the oppositions. So far, he is the most valuable player of the tournament as well.
Chris Gayle is a different level:
Speaking to The Telegraph, Andre Russell quoted that he always admired Chris Gayle, who has always shown that he is the world boss. He wants to follow the footsteps of his fellow mate in the Windies team.
Russell believes that Gayle is still the best striker of the ball in the world cricket. Andre Russell lauded the stylish southpaw for doing to so consistently over the years in his cricketing career across the globe.
I’ve always admired Chris Gayle, who continues to show that he’s the Universe Boss… I’m not at his level yet… However, I’m doing my thing and climbing up the ladder. But it’s Chris who is the man still and I’m just trying to follow in his footsteps. Chris knows what his strengths are and, indeed, plays to his strengths. He’s been hitting the ball so cleanly and so consistently. For years, Andre Russell said.
Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers work hard:
Further, he went on to add saying that Virat Kohli of India and AB de Villiers of South Africa are the other two cricketers, whom he cherishes. The flamboyant striker of the ball inspired by the transformation of Kohli alongside the genius AB de Villiers, who is so creative.
“AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli… I’ve seen the extraordinary transformation in Virat’s cricket in the last few years… He has changed a lot of things… Diet, for one. The way Virat goes about preparing himself, well, he does work hard… If your mindset is right and the body in the best condition, then you have less chances of injury,” Russell added.
He admired the remarkable batting form of AB de Villiers. Russell lauded AB de Villiers for being so consistent despite taking a good break from the game of cricket in between the calendar year.
‘To talk of AB… He could be off cricket for two-three months, but would immediately deliver on getting back… Would get a hundred… AB has all the shots and is so creative,” he concluded.
All in all, it is pleasing to see Andre Russell following the footsteps of the world boss. As Russell said, Virat Kohli has developed himself as one of the best in the business to be regarded as one of the best batsmen in the world cricket.
