“He (Virat) is a tremendous player. Sometimes, you may have to put five-ten words together to actually describe him as a player. He is such a determined guy. Virat is a true champion.

He is a proper all-around player,” Russell said on the sidelines of the ongoing Abu Dhabi T10 league.

“Virat’s technique is a lot different from mine. It’s more classical than mine. I am more awkward batter where my technique is not that smooth,” Russell said. My technique is all about power and brute force. I try to hit the ball as hard as possible off every delivery I face,” he added.
