No ground is big enough for me: Russell

No ground is big enough for me, Andre Russell said after yet another unbelievable display of power hitting by the Jamaican in the IPL.

Russell smashed an unbeaten 48 off 13 balls as Kolkata Knight Riders plundered 66 runs in four overs to script a memorable win over RCB here Friday night.

The all-rounder said that he had thought Australian grounds were massive, only to surprise himself by sending a few into the stands Down Under.

"A few grounds in Australia and then I surprised myself there by hitting a few into the stands. No ground is big enough for me I guess, I just trust my strength and trust my power. I have good bat speed. I trust that as well," Russell said after his exploits in KKR's 5-wicket win.

Needing 66 runs off 24 balls, KKR were up against it before Russell came in and smashed them to complete the job with five balls to spare.

"The support is good from the boys and I am in a good space so that I can express myself. I try short arm jabs as extending the arms can put you in trouble. Can't explain much, rather show that on the field," Russell said.
