A new day, a new game, but the same old result as Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Andre Russell smashed his way to a 17-ball 48 to help set the game for KKR against Kings XI Punjab at the Eden Gardens on Wednesday night.
After his blitzkrieg against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the opening game, it was KXIP’s time to face the heat and the all-rounder said that he likes to keep things simple at the batting crease.
“You have to make sure you have a clear head. When I run out to bat… That little run I do, it just gets my body warm, gets the adrenaline rush. It’s not something I do just because I want to, but it’s something I do to get warm, get into the mood, swing my bat a few times.
