New Delhi: The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a tournament where the picture of the match changes every moment. There are many batsmen and ballers in the tournament who have the ability to turn the match in a single over. So it's like a challenge for a cricket lover to bet on a particular team during the competition. Former India captain and Sunil Gavaskar has described Andre Russell as the biggest game-changer of the tournament, playing for West Indies and Kolkata Knight Riders.
Gavaskar praised Russell and said he could push against any team. Writing a column in StarSports, Gavaskar wrote, "KKR as Andre Russell has the biggest game-changer." He scored 510 runs in 13 winnings last year. His strike rate was 204.81. Russell, who scored at an average of 56.66, also picked up 11 wickets last season.
How dangerous Russell is on the batting front can be gauged from the fact that his lowest strike rate in the last four years has been 164.91. KKR are believed to be sending their biggest match finisher Andre Russell to third-ranked this time. KKR coach David Hussey is planning to send allrounder Cricketer Russell up in the batting order. Hussey believes that if Russell takes a 60-ball game while batting at No. 3, he can also score a double century.
