“Andre Russell always delivers when…”Venky Iyer’s huge praise for Carabian star

Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer was all praise for Andre Russell. Venky said that Russell never disappoints KKR and always delivers when the team requires it. 

Andre Russell had a phenomenal day with the ball as the all-rounder picked up two wickets, giving away just 29 runs in his four-over quota.

Speaking of Andre Russell Venkatesh, Iyer said, “Absolutely. As you could see on the field, he bowled his four overs and then fielded in a crucial position as well. He was running from long on throughout the game. I am sure had he gotten a hit out there, he would have scored runs as well.”

Iyer also revealed that as soon as KKR’s skipper found out that there’s nothing much for spinner,he turned to Russell for the full four overs, and he delivered.

Venky said, “That speaks volumes about the guy’s fitness and longevity in his career. He has always been fit, just as most of our bowlers get the job done most of the time, but today, when Shreyas saw that the bowl wasn’t spinning much, he turned to Dre to bowl his full quota, and he delivered.”

Iyer further added, “And that’s why he is one of the finest T20 players. He always delivers when the team requires anything from him.”

KKR will now lock horns with Delhi capitals in Vizag on April 3.
