Russel training hard with iconic Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt's sports therapist Everald 'Eddie' Edwards, as he said on Thursday.

"Eddie used to be Usain Bolt's physio. We all know Bolt is the fastest man in the world, I am the second (laughs) so yeah like to be anywhere close to his fitness, you need guys like Edward around you. He is my personal physio," Russell said after joining the KKR camp, this West Indies star ruled out from Pakistan Premier League (PSL) after getting hamstring injury.

"It's been tough to be honest. You want to do things but you can't. You restrict yourself from doing it to be a better player, to be a better athlete and person," Russell said about his lifestyle.

"Like a lot of partying, drinking you know all those bad habits. I am not saying I am perfect, but I am working on it and it's been treating me well. I am looking fit," the 29-year-old added.

There are so many young talents in the KKR side taking about that he said," "It's fantastic. We have a lot of young talent. We should do really well. Once everyone steps up the plate, it will be good enough."

KKR got a new skipper who scored 29 runs in eight balls to clinch the Nidahas trophy by hearing Bangladesh in the Final. Talking about his skipper Russel said,"(I am) excited to work with him. I have played against him. I will be sharing the dressing room with him and taking his instructions. It should be interesting,"
