Kolkata Knight Riders' (KKR) West Indies stars Andre Russell and Sunil Narine arrived in Mumbai on Tuesday and started their seven-day quarantine before the team's training camp commences for the 2021 Indian Premier League.
The duo flew in from the Caribbean to Mumbai via USA, the two-time IPL champions said in a statement.
"Whenever you think about the IPL, you think about India. So it's great to be back. Hopefully, we can have a better season than last year," said Narine.
"We are closer to you guys now, the games are in India," said Russell addressing the team's fans.
"Whether you guys are watching from home or the stands, we will be representing Purple and Gold. Now is the time when we are going to do what we do best, because we know the bubble. We're used to this situation, our mindset is already planned for this. Korbo Lorbo Jeetbo," he said.
Dinesh Karthik, Varun Chakaravarthy, Rahul Tripathi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Sandeep Warrier, Vaibhav Arora and support staff including assistant coach Abhishek Nayar and assistant bowling coach Omkar Salvi were among the first set of people to arrive at the hotel on Saturday.
