Andre Russell is the best T20 player on the planet. The power he possess is something that no other player in the world has. He is a 3 dimensional player and on his day can walk into any T20 team either as a batter or as a bowler alone. Such is the skillset of the player.

The only flaw in his game is his proneness to injuries which has been worrying him for so long. He was injured in the game against CSK in the 2nd leg and didn’t play any game for them to date.

KKR have now played their last 2 games in Sharjah where the wicket was terrible for batting and assisted spinners big time.

They will be travelling to Dubai for the all important final against CSK where the wicket will be good for batting and not to mention about the world class players of spin bowling that CSK have under their ranks.
