Andre Russell has cemented his place as a key player of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) franchise with his all-round performance. The Kolkata outfit in return has never failed to remind their Indian Premier League (IPL) opponents about Andre Russell’s abilities. Recently, KKR shared a picture of the swashbuckling Windies all-rounder along with his double – “Clubber Lang”. Lang is a character which was played by Mr T in the film Rocky III.
Along with the picture tweeted by KKR, they also wrote, “Like how Clubber Lang tormented the boxing arena in the eighties, mighty @Russell12A makes ’em bowlers shiver in fear today.”
