WINDIES T20 star, Andre Russell to make return for Pakistan Super League


Andre Russell

WINDIES T20 star, Andre Russell, will be back to playing cricket in January and already has one contract lined up after Pakistan Super League (PSL) team Islamabad United bought him in Sunday’s draft.

On a day when Chris Gayle failed to find a team, Russell found himself in a team with fellow Windies T20 player, Samuel Badree.

Russell has not played cricket for a year after he was banned by the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) after committing a ‘wheareabouts violation’.
The violation came because on three occasions in the space of a year, Russell failed to tell JADCO where he would be, so they could test him. The violation is treated in the same manner as a positive drug test.

Russell will also be playing alongside Mohammad Sami, and Shadab Khan, who turned out for his Jamaica Tallawahs during his absence at this year’s Hero Caribbean Premier League.
Other Windies players in the PSL are Nicolas Pooran, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Darren Bravo, Evin Lewis, Sunil Narine, Darren Sammy, and Carlos Brathwaite.

Pollard, Pooran and Darren Bravo will team up for the Multan Sultans, while Sammy and Dwayne Bravo turn out for Peshawar Zalmi.

Lahore Qalandars have the services of Narine while the Quetta Gladiators will make do with Windies T20 skipper, Brathwaite.

Windies Cricket..Lovely Windies Cricket!

Cricketwindies is the leading voice for Caribbean and International cricket news, information and opinion. We’re a community of cricket fans who follow all cricket. In other words, a bunch of high-strung, fanatical cricket enthusiasts who have far too much time on their hands.

For many years the West Indies team ruled the cricket world, playing undefeated in a Test series for over 15 years. Recently the West Indies team has suffered several losses but with the emergence of new high-calibre players the future for the West Indies cricket team looks very good!

West Indians are passionate about their cricket, quick to cheer when the team performs well but also quick to criticize a poor performance. Thousands of West Indians always turn out to watch their team play .... and hopefully win!

Cricket is seen as a unifying force in the West Indies, bringing together players (and supporters) from across the region. This gentleman's game has brought considerable exposure to the islands of the Caribbean, with the West Indian cricketers being remembered not only for their incredible talent and skills but also for their deportment and sense of fair play.
