Andre Russell says in the T20 World Cup, 'he'll be looking like a UFC fighter'

The all-rounder of the West Indies, Andre Russell, has said that he will be looking like a UFC fighter by the time the T20 World Cup rolls around next year. Russell was part of the West Indies team that beat England by four wickets in the fifth and final T20I to clinch the five-match series 3-2.
While speaking after the end of the series, Russell pledged that he would be looking like a UFC fighter in the 2024 T20 World Cup, insisting that the series win meant so much for the team. The West Indies had failed to qualify for the recently concluded ODI World Cup in India, and a T20I series win against the T20I World Champions would’ve boosted the team’s morale.
Russell said, “I’ll be in better shape; to be honest, I’ll be looking like a UFC fighter. This series win means so much. It [makes me] want to push myself to the limit. We have a lot of cricket to play, and that’s good. When you’re playing cricket and in competition, your body is active, and you’re not just sitting at home waiting for the World Cup. We are definitely going to give some teams a good run for their money in the World Cup.”
