West Indian all-rounder Andre Russell would be the most important player for the national side in the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup as he is coming off a highly successful season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) where he decimated the bowling lineups.
The Caribbean side has lost its first warm up game against Australia after the batting crumbled against the dynamic Aussie bowling. Russell missed out on scoring big in the game, however, he is gearing up to dominate bowlers in the mega event this year.
In an interview, he has said that he is batting in the nets like he needs to score 150 runs off the final 10 overs of an ODI game which is the same approach that he uses while preparing for the T20s.
Russell feels that not waiting for the bad balls and being able to score on good deliveries helps him stay ahead of the required run rate in limited overs cricket.
