I Am Very Hungry To Smash Sixes For West Indies In ICC World Cup 2019 – Andre Russell
It has been a stellar season for Andre Russell in the IPL 2019. He is whacking those deliveries out of the park with such an ease and also delivering those match-winning spells with the ball. Meanwhile, the power-hitter wants to repeat the same show for Windies in the ICC World Cup 2019.
Andre Russell has been selected for the Windies in the 15-man squad for the ICC World Cup 2019. The flamboyant striker of the ball wants to show his calibre to the world in the showpiece event.
“I’m so hungry to represent the West Indies and to smash sixes. I want to do what I’ve been doing here and score hundreds,” the KKR star player, who averages 28 in 52 ODIs and has taken 65 wickets, told reporters at the Eden Gardens.
Took injections on Knee:
Further, Andre Russell quoted that he is disappointed not to play in the series against England. He added that the left knee hasn’t been that great and the injections further stretched the vows. However, Russell wants to make an impact on the ICC World Cup 2019.
“I took two injections to better my knee but it flared up and I was so upset. I was watching the games against England and couldn’t do anything about it,” Russell said about the 2-2 drawn series against top-ranked England.
Do senior Windies players concentrate franchise on cricket?
Andre Russell also touched that sensitive question when he was asked to give his opinion on Windies players, who play for Franchise cricket by not considering the national cricket.
“They never know what it is to play with injuries and to play in situations where you’re not comfortable. And if you keep playing for your country and you’re not comfortable then the performances won’t show as it always shows here in franchise cricket. What’s been happening over the years is we have been playing all around the world in T20 leagues, we’ve been treated like royalties and, you know, we haven’t been treated like we are part of the Caribbean team.
Russell last featured in an ODI for the West Indies nearly a year ago during Bangladesh’s three-match tour of the Caribbean. He played just one game before pulling out of the series with a knee injury.
