Andre Rusell ruled out of PSL:

West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell is going to miss the remainder of PSL (Pakistan Super League) after suffering a hamstring injury.

Islamabad United all-rounder got injured while fielding during a match against Karachi Kings.

He missed the second edition of PSL after being banned because of missing dope tests.

KKR stare into the abyss:

The injury might be a setback for the team of Kolkata Knight Riders as his injury makes him doubtful for the next edition of Indian Premier League (IPL).

After the injury of Chris Lynn, the retained star Russell has deepened the troubles for KKR who are relying on the likes of Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa and Rusell for the upcoming season of IPL.

KKR brought Andre Russell for 6 lakhs in 2014 where he played only a few matches for the franchise.
