Kolkata Knight Riders’ all-rounder Andre Russell has been ruled out of the side’s crucial match against Gujarat Lions due to a leg injury.

The West Indies cricketer walked off the field during the side’s nine-wicket defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore with a suspected injury to his left leg, ESPNcricinfo reported.

The 28-year-old is the third-highest wicket-taker of the tournament, having scalped 15 wickets so far. He has also notched up a total of 188 runs for Knight Riders.

Gautam Gambhir’ side, who have to win both of their remaining matches to confirm their place in the playoffs, are currently standing second with 14 points.

They will play against Gujarat Lions at the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur.
