West Indies cricketer Andre Russell has said that he wanted to look attractive for girls and paid the price for it.

The Jamaican all-rounder kept working on his upper body and neglected his lower body due to which he suffered a knee injury and had to undergo surgery.

"I used to go to the gym and just work only on my abs and my shoulders because I wanted to look sexy for the girls. At the end of the day, being sexy and then your legs being weak, don't work. So it is very important to have a complete work out of the body. I could have done more wonders had I worked on my legs too," Russell was quoted as saying by Gulf News.

"Unfortunately, at 23 you are fearless, and I used to ignore that pain and I always gave it a quick fix by taking painkillers and kept running," he added.

Russell will be playing for Kolkata Knight Riders in the upcoming IPL season.
