Kolkata Knight Riders will be playing against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Friday at Eden Gardens. Andre Russell has not performed well for the team in the first three games of IPL 2023, scoring only 36 runs. However, Lockie Ferguson, a pacer for the team, hopes that Russell will return to form and hit big in the upcoming game.
Ferguson believes that Russell is far from underperforming and played well in the first game against Punjab Kings. He recalled his experience of playing with Russell in 2019 and stated that he has not seen anyone hit a ball like him. Ferguson also praised Indian coach Chandrakant Pandit for creating a good team atmosphere.
The Kolkata Knight Riders have won their previous two matches against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Titans. The team is hoping for a big knock from Russell in the upcoming game against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
