West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell says he is confident of recovering from a knee problem in time for his side’s second Cricket World Cup match against Australia on Thursday.
Russell limped off at Nottingham after a hostile spell of fast bowling during which he took two wickets for four runs in three overs against Pakistan.
He was not required to bat as West Indies cantered to victory in under 14 overs with the loss of three wickets.
“I’ve been playing for years with these knee injuries,” Russell told reporters.
“Let’s just see what happens. I have a good physio team, massage team, here so they’re going to be working with me closely for the next couple of days.”
