Chennai Super Kings won the match against Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday in Abu Dhabi.The match was surely a nail biting one as it gone till the last ball of the match. It was an outright exhilarating experience as Eoin Morgan’s men by one way or another brought the game down the wire to ultimately go down battling.
While shielding 171, they kept a cover of CSK’s run-scoring on account of their spinners yet didn’t have perhaps their best bowler Andre Russell to bowl in the death overs.
The all-rounder got harmed while handling at the ball in the seventeenth over. The ball was voyaging and Russell ran well to get to the ball and tossed it in a jiffy. All the while, he supported the hamstring injury and just after the threw, he left the boundary line scowling in torment.
Russell had bowled three overs up to that point for 28 runs and had picked a wicket of Ruturaj Gaikwad. Yet, he wasn’t seen on the field after the saga of Morgan needed to go to Prasidh Krishna for the nineteenth over when the match flipped completely around. Discussing the all-rounder’s physical issue, Kolkata Knight Riders tutor David Hussey affirmed that Andre Russell has a hamstring niggle and the clinical staff is caring for him.
Hussey additionally expressed that it is too soon to tell if the Caribbean will be accessible to play the following match against Delhi Capitals.
“It’s still too early to tell. he felt something pop in his leg, his hamstring. We’ve got the best medical staff in the business so they’ll tend to him and hopefully it’s nothing too serious, because he’s a key part of our team”
“He’s been playing very very nicely with the bat, the ball, and in the field. So hopefully nothing too serious and he can come back and light the competition up like we know Andre Russell can do,” stated by David Hussey.
“Of course when Andre went off the park he had one over to go. Was he gonna bowl? No one really knows. He bowled particularly well up front, so he probably was going to bowl the 19th over,” concluded by KKR Mentor Hussey.
