With the West Indian power hitter Andre Russell in his supreme form during current edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) bowlers fear to go against him in the match. However, now his team mate in Kolkatta Knight Riders (KKR) has revealed the secret to him out.
Russell this season so far for Kolkata Knight Riders has amassed 257 runs from just 121 balls with a stunning ball striking rate of 212.39.
In a report quoted by PTI Kuldeep has revealed the weakness in Russell’s armour which he will look to exploit during the May 30-July 14 cricket World Cup.
“He has some problems facing a turning ball. If the ball is turning, then he has a weakness,” Kuldeep told PTI in an interview.
He further revealed that he has other plans to go against Russell in the World Cup.
“It’s not just this, I’ve different plans to unleash against him in the World Cup. I know how to stop him and I’m very clear in my mind,” he was quoted further.
He has been sharing the dressing room with Russell but Kuldeep conceded that he has never bowled to him at the nets.
“He does not take chances against spinners. He’s a terror for pacers. And I’ve never bowled him at the nets. You are always under pressure when you’re hit for two sixes in a row,” he said.
“It’s important how you come back. All it takes is one ball to get the batsman out. You can assess a player’s character by that.”
