In the ongoing IPL match between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), KKR pacer Andre Russell was seen taking deep breaths and looking unwell while bowling his second over.
The Jamaican cricketer is known for his explosive performances on the field, but today, he seemed to be struggling with his fitness. In the fifth over of the SRH innings, Russell was seen taking deep breaths and clutching his side after bowling a couple of deliveries.
The KKR team management would be hoping that it’s just a temporary issue and their star all-rounder can continue to contribute in the remainder of the game. Russell is a key member of the KKR squad and his absence can have a significant impact on the team’s fortunes.
Andre Russell has been seen struggling with the hot weather conditions in Kolkata. The city is currently experiencing temperatures ranging from 38-42 degrees Celsius with no signs of a breeze, making it extremely challenging for players to perform at their best.
