It's ok not to be ok: KKR player Andre Russell shares picture with alcohol bottle, fans worried

Friday, April 30, 2021 • Tamil Sport News Comments

West Indies cricketer and Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Andre Russell is well known by cricket fans for his destructive batting and helping his team win several matches through the course of the Indian Premier League despite the seeming impossibility in numerous situations.

The reliable all-rounder, who has been part of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) since 2014, is not having the most amazing time IPL wise as the KKR team has lost 5 out of the 7 matches it has played. Andre Russell managed to help the team put up a decent score in a couple of matches but the collective effort of the team was found by viewers to be rather disappointing. Meanwhile, Andre Russell shared a picture of himself on social media holding a bottle of alcohol alongside captions that read "It's ok to not be 'ok'" and "Alcohol (emoji) helps all the time." Although the reason behind Russell's dismal mood is not known, fans of KKR are concerned whether the poor performance of the team in the ongoing season of IPL might be the cause.

After a disappointing defeat against Mumbai Indians in their second match of the tournament, Russell had said, "I have played hundreds of T20 games and I have seen games where teams cruise in on the driver's seat and then suddenly lose a few wickets, and that's what happened tonight. So, we definitely have to learn from this. We will look to make sure that who's in, stays in and once we learn from all these mistakes we will definitely do better. I have trust and confidence in the boys."
