Talking to an international cricket website, Russell said, “I am only being defensive based on knowledge I had gathered about the security situation in Pakistan by reading and watching in the media.”
Andre Russell, who is playing for Islamabad United in PSL has made 77 runs in 6 matches and took 10 wickets till now. Tonight, they will face Peshawar Zalmi in the third play-off.
“Based on what I have heard, I am going to be scared obviously. But for some reason, I would go to Pakistan,” said Russell.
Russell gave the example of walking through the streets of Jamaica, “A lot of crime going on in Jamaica, I am from Jamaica, I am going to tell, Jamaica is the most beautiful place. But you are going to say, No, they are shooting people. I will say no, do not worry. So it is going to be the similar case about travelling to Pakistan.”
