Dubai: All-rounder Andre Russell, who played in only one ODI since 2015, said he is “hungry” to represent West Indies at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, beginning May 30.
“I’m so hungry now to represent the West Indies. The last time I joined the West Indies team was recently when I had taken two injections to better my knee and it flared up again. I was so upset. I was watching the game against England and couldn’t do anything about it,” ICC quoted Russell, as saying.
“But as I said, I’m so hungry right now to play for West Indies like I’m doing here (in the Indian Premier League), hit sixes and score centuries,” he said.
The 30-year-old has been in destructive form for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and scored 406 runs in 11 games at a strike rate of 209.27 so far.
