IPL 2023: I don’t think Andre is underperforming – Lockie Ferguson backs Andre Russell

Kolkata Knight Riders are set to face Delhi Capitals in their sixth game of the tournament Tomorrow (20).

KKR batter Andre Russell got out cheaply for 0, 1, 3 and 21 in the previous four matches but pacer Lockie Ferguson feels that his star KKR teammate will turn things around in their next matches

Ferguson said a big knock is due from the explosive Jamaican batter.

“I don’t think Andre is underperforming. He played well in the first game (35 vs Punjab Kings), then he had a couple of early dismissals. I would say he’s far from underperforming,” Ferguson expressed.

In the 2023 edition of IPL, Russell has scored 57 runs in five matches played so far. He has registered the highest score of 35 and has an average of 12.00.

On the other hand, when it comes to his IPL career, Russell has played 101 matches and has scored 2071 runs with the highest score of 88 and an average of 29.59.

“We all know what Andre can do, particularly here that was my first season and first experience of Andre, and Jesus! I’ve not seen a guy hit a ball like that. I’m sure he will put us a show for us tomorrow night,” Ferguson said, recalling his first season in KKR in 2019.
