Andre Dwayne Russell (born April 29, 1988) is a Jamaican professional cricketer who plays as an all-rounder for the West Indies and Jamaica in West Indian domestic cricket. He has appeared in over 300 Twenty20 matches for a variety of teams in leagues all over the world. He is widely regarded as one of the all-time great T20 cricketers. Russell scored a century in a record 40 balls in the 2018 Caribbean Premier League and also took a hat-trick in the same match, becoming only the second player in Twenty20 history to do so.
Andre Russell was a two-time world champion by the time he was five years into international cricket. The fact that both titles came in the T20 format reflects the type of cricketer he is. He is primarily a finisher, a batsman who hits the ball hard enough to make the inanimate object scream for mercy. He generates even more speed with the ball in hand, and it doesn’t matter how fast it’s traveling if it’s anywhere near him on the field. Russell will most likely get to it. He is more of an athlete than a cricketer in the traditional sense.
Russell, a Jamaican allrounder, made his first-class debut at the age of 19. He made his way into the West Indies A squad and drew a lot of attention for his performance in a 50-over game against Ireland in June 2010, when he hit 61 off 34 balls and took 6 for 42. It was a performance that helped him earn a spot in the West Indies World Cup squad in 2011. Things didn’t go as planned, but his abilities were on display in June against India, when he came out at No. 9 with the score at 96 for 7, and smashed 92 off 64 balls.
Russell’s international impact was sporadic until 2015 when he provided a consolation victory for West Indies on a difficult tour by hitting 64 off 40 balls to chase down 263 with one wicket to spare against South Africa in Port Elizabeth. Batting in the slog overs was described as “my thing” by him. “I think I like it best when there are five or ten overs left.”
However, those abilities were evident in domestic T20 cricket. In July 2013, he played for Worcestershire in the Friends Life t20 in England, and a month later, his team, the Jamaica Tallawahs, won the Caribbean Premier League. Russell’s star shone brightest during the IPL 2015 when he was named Man of the Series, and the Big Bash League 2015-16, when he struck at 186.86 and picked up 16 wickets (tied for second-most) from 10 matches. In 2013, he won the CPL with Tallawahs, the IPL with Kolkata Knight Riders in 2014, the Bangladesh Premier League with Comilla Victorians in 2015, the BBL with Sydney Thunder in 2016, and the Pakistan Super League with Islamabad United in 2016.
His colorful style is a reflection of his personality, as evidenced by his 2015 World Cup hairstyle, which was inspired by Mr. T. Russell finished off a mauling of hosts India in the World T20 semi-final a year later, with his mohawk colored blonde, as West Indies became the first team to win the title twice.
