KKR’s Twitter Account shared a live video of this Practice match in which Russell was on strike and Dinesh was on the other end. Russell powerfully smashed a shot, straight down the ground and unfortunately Kartik was in the balls trajectory and got hit with it, but luckily didn’t end up getting injured.

Last few seasons hadn’t been good for the franchise as just last year they missed out narrowly on gettin a berth to the Playoffs and finished 5th. They need a turnaround and for that Russell’s form and fitness is pivotal.
KKR would start their journey in this years IPL against Hyderabad in Chennai on 11th April.
