Andre Russell, who was out of the T20I series with India due to injury, says he needs to recover 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,” Russell told India Today.
“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.”
The all-rounder, who recently grabbed 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 tournament.
“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, who represents the Kolkata Knight Riders in the tournament.
