profile

Over the past few years, few sides can compete with West Indies for the alarming rate at which they have chopped and changed their sides. Youngsters have been blooded in with gay abandon but either inexperience or lack of opportunities has resulted in them being unsuccessful at the international stage.

A fast bowling all-rounder, Andre Russell was one of the few new faces in a revamped West Indies squad for the 2010 Test tour to Sri Lanka. The Jamaican who impressed for West Indies A with both bat and ball on their 2010 England tour followed it up with a fine domestic tournament in the Caribbean which earned him a call-up to the national side.

A pacer who believes in bowling in the right areas rather than striving for pace, Russell’s hard hitting abilities combined with his electrifying fielding make him a fine prospect. He showed that with a brilliant batting display against England in a league game during the ICC CWC 2011, nearly taking the Windies home. Russell’s rise to fame also landed him a contract with Delhi in the Indian T20 league. He couldn’t play a lot of games for the franchise and was subsequently bought by Kolkata in 2014.
