An allrounder from Jamaica, Andre Russell made his first-class debut at the age of 19 and developed into a useful seamer and a reliable lower-order batsman. He made his way into the West Indies A squad and captured plenty of attention when drowning Ireland with his all-round exploits in a 50-over game in June 2010, smashing 61 off 34 balls and taking 6 for 42. It was a performance that would help him win a place in West Indies’ World Cup squad.

At the tournament, Russell challenged England in a closely-fought game in Chennai, taking 4 for 49 and threatening to pull off the chase in a game his team eventually lost. He picked up five wickets in Jamaica’s fourth successive title win in West Indies’ first-class competition, and shone against India with a counter-attacking, unbeaten 92 in Antigua.

During the inaugural season of PSL, Russell will be playing for Islamabad United.
