    As Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) is all set to take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Eliminator 1 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, the former team's all-rounder Andre Russell has issued a warning to Virat Kohli and his men.

    The West Indies batsman said that he wants to hit the ball so hard that the opposition end up getting a new ball. In a video posted by KKR on Instagram, Rusell, who was interacting with teammates Venkatesh Iyer and Shakib Al Hassan revealed the secret behind the strength he generates to hit sixes.

    "I would do like 20 to 30 pushups every day, just to keep up my body strength going, because hitting those sixes, 100 metres or more, I might do it for a couple of times a year, but hitting those sixes consistently, it takes consistent work," the Windies all-rounder said.

    "At the point of contact, most of the time I try to make sure that everything goes to the ball. Some guys, they look to time the ball. They keep their shape, and they want the ball to go over the ropes. I want to hit the ball so hard that they end up getting a new ball," he added.

    Not just that, 'Muscle Russell' also spoke about the strategy behind hitting sixes which ends up putting extreme pressure on the bowling side.

    "I learned a lot of Chris Gayle. He said that I am afraid of getting out on the boundary, so I rather hit the ball over the boundary, like far back, make sure it's a six," said Russell.

    As for the clash, KKR and RCB will lock horns in the Eliminator on Monday, at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. The Eoin Morgan-led side will be heading into this game marginally ahead by winning 15 of the 28 league matches played thus far.

    The winner from this clash will face Delhi Capitals, who lost to Chennai Super Kings (CSK), on Wednesday in Qualifier 2.
