We have to do it with the same intelligence – Andre Russell

Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Andre Russell, ahead of the final, spoke about the challenge of playing in a grand final in Chennai. He said they must be smart in the game. He said:

“I think Chennai is a big ground, a bit of a strange condition, you don’t know what to expect. The last time we played there against Chennai, the wicket looked good. I didn’t expect the wicket to play the way it did,”

“We have to do it as smartly as possible, taking one game at a time. I think when the time comes, we have been adapting well as a bowling unit. If the wicket is a little slow, we can use the power cutters, but not too predictable,” He concluded.
