The name Andre Russell is very much synonymous with the team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKKR). Over the years, the all-rounder has been playing a crucial role in helping the franchise win several games on his own terms, and in return, the KKR management has also taken very good care of him, whenever the cricketer has suffered an injury.

Notably, when he was struggling with a knee injury, the Knight Riders took care of his treatment and since then, he has built a special relationship with the two-time champions. Recalling everything, Russell stated that no other franchise or even West Indies has done so much for him in the past. He also revealed that he will never be leaving KKR as he has built a very special relationship with everyone in the team, especially with KKR CEO Venky Mysore.

Durina a recent chat with Star Sports, Andre Russell said, “Where I was, a few years ago, KKR actually make things happen for me where they send me to get proper treatments on my knees. That’s something special to me to be honest. No other franchise or even my country never really invest that much on me.”

He further added, “I’m happy here. I don’t see any other franchise I would love to be a part of in this tournament because I’ve been here for about 9 years now. Been here for so many years, I meet these guys, get closer to them every year. When cricket isn’t there, I’m still in communication with Mr Venky (Mysore). I look up to him, I really respect him.”

When it comes to IPL 2023, Andre Russell is struggling to get going in the ongoing season. So far, he has managed to score only 108 runs in eight matches and has picked up five wickets so far. As KKR will be aiming to reach the playoffs, the 35-year-old will have to play a brilliant brand of cricket at the business end of the tournament.
