What would Russel's Role on our WC team be

Kolkata Knight Riders' over dependence on Andre Russell is no state secret. In fact, it's more by design than accident. However, it is around the allrounder Russell that their team was built. The problem here is Russell, the bowler

If he is fit , he will be selected. If selected as an allrounder , could this impact our attack ?

Is he worth batting Holder at 6?

Holder averages 20 at 6?

Russell hasn't really produced results in ODIs like in T20s.

If he can reproduce his T20 impact in ODIs , he can bat 6, and our tail starts at 7 with Holder.

That's a lot of pressure on the top order

Russell is a runs truck...that can destroy any bowing attack on his day...

Not long ago he was a runs truck who couldn’t bat

Russell is a game changer with the Bat in hand and adds another dimension to our team with his fielding.

If he finds forms with his bowling this would be a big plus for us.

Has anyone seen him bowling ?? ,, what is he doing wrong ? ,, he generally bowls with good enough pace that he would just need to focus on putting it in the right places more often than not.

What I can say is that I have never had so many doubts/anticipation regarding a WC squad selection until now , usually you would say most of the squad is selected with maybe 2 possibly 3 places up for grabs. In this scenario , almost half the squad could change depending on how the selectors go.

Nope, still think it's only two or three places up for grabs, max 4.

That is, will they try to include, Pollard, Bravo and Narine, that's about it.

Will he be able to complete 10 overs? Can he be selected as a batsman only? Questions to be answered

He bowls well sometimes but he does not respond sensibly to being attacked. His response is ALWAYS to bowl more short balls.

The solution is to only use him as a bowler until he starts to falter then hide him.
