Dinesh Karthik Dubs Andre Russell ‘MMA Fighter’
Kolkata Knight Riders captain Dinesh Karthik is proud to have Windies power hitter Andre Russell in his team and believes he has a tough character like an MMA fighter.
“Just watching him walk in is scary. He comes in like a wrestler. What a buildup he gives while doing that. He’s a brilliant character. With his muscles and all, he looks like an MMA fighter,” Dinesh Karthik said while chatting with his national side teammate Ravi Ashwin’s YouTube show called ‘Hello Dubaiahh’.
Interestingly Karthik also revealed that the vibrant Dre-Russ is scared of everything except the cricket ball.
“But he’s scared of everything. He’s scared of driving cars, or even when the bus swerves, he gets scared. He said he’ll never be on a rollercoaster. Never judge a book by its cover. The only thing he’s not scared of is the ball,” Karthik also added.
