Sydney Thunder star allrounder Andre Russell has been stretchered off from Spotless Stadium after injuring his hamstring against the Melbourne Stars on Wednesday night.

Russell pulled up lame after chasing a ball to the third man boundary, immediately falling to the ground and clutching his leg.

The 29-year-old overseas signing has played with a knee injury throughout the tournament and was set to undergo scans after the clash with the Stars, according to Fairfax media.

He has to maintain the reputation and electrify the crowds...people also go to see him in the field.

These guys don't get enough time to heal properly.

Gym work is not the same as crcket preparation.
I listened to retire cricketer yesterday, he said"The reason why these guys a not scoring runs or taking wickets, is because they are not working on their game, away from Club T20 cricket".
That means to me, you run from club to club, and not take time to actually practice.

I have seen him nursing an injury and running and diving full tilt. I know he wants to maintain reputation etc., but the fastest way to lose one's reputation is to be sidelined or lose effectiveness due to permanent nagging injuries

In reply to Baje... but is it not the way of professional sports, Players playing with niggles?
