Widely regarded as one of the most powerful strikers of the ball in limited-overs cricket, Andre Russell has earned his reputation a huge reputation in the Twenty20 franchise cricket around the World.
Over the last few years, wherever he has taken his talents, which also include his bustling fast-medium bowling, he has been the bright spark that has fired teams to titles whether it be the Caribbean Premier League, Indian Premier League, Big Bash League, Bangladesh Premier League or Pakistan Super League.
On the international scene, a promising career looked to be in the making when he burst onto the scene in 2010 for his One-day International debut and 2011 for his Test debut. But a chronic knee problem that limited his bowling took him down the path of T20 specialist.
It has meant that Russell has only appeared for West Indies in one Test, 56 ODIs and 47 T20 Internationals over the span of his playing career, robbing the side of one its most destructive batsmen and disruptive talents.
