Andre Russell, who was reigned out of the T20I series with India due to hurt, says he wants to recuperate rapidly to be “fit and ready” for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in England.
“My knees, I did get therapy two months ago and I am feeling a lot better at the moment. I have been busy in the gym, getting ready and fit for the World Cup,” said Russell.
“It is a big tournament, in fact the biggest moment in cricket. I don’t want to sit at home when the World Cup is being played, so just making sure I am fit and ready to go.”
He said he want to get wickets and get confidence going into the World Cup.
The all-rounder, who lately raised the T10 trophy with Northen Warriors, is an expert in the shorter formats of the game. He trusts that the Indian Premier League, which will be planned before the World Cup next year, will be the perfect training ahead of the multi-nation competition. He is hopeful to play upcoming cricket world cup.
“IPL is going to be a big tournament running up to the World Cup and you can work on your game while in the IPL,” said Russell,
