CLT20 2013 Statistics
Batting and Fielding
|Birth Date||29 April 1988|
The most exciting talent to emerge from the Caribbean in recent times, Andre Russell – the Jamaican all-rounder – was signed by the Delhi franchise at the IPL Player Auction 2012.
Russell is a powerful striker of the ball and scored an unbeaten 92 to rescue West Indies from a delicate situation in an ODI against India in 2011. He operates as a change bowler, often sticking to a wicket-to-wicket line and uses variations to outsmart batsmen. While he can be expensive at times, he generally picks up key wickets, is a very athletic fielder and possesses a very powerful throwing arm. After representing DD in seven matches over the 2012 and 2013 seasons, Russell was signed in by the Kolkata Knight Riders at the 2014 IPL Player Auction.
