Andre Russell Biography, Relationship & Career
From the time Andre Russell was little over five years into international cricket, he had been a two-time world champion. That both names came in the T20 format defines the sort of cricketer he is. A batsman who hits the ball hard enough to make the inanimate item scream for mercy, he acts mostly as a finisher. He creates more speed with the ball in hand and as soon as it’s anywhere close in the area, it does not matter at what speed it’s traveling.
His effect in international cricket was somewhat sporadic until 2015, against South Africa in Port Elizabeth, when he supplied a consolation victory for West Indies on a tricky tour by hitting 64 off 40 balls to chase 263 with one wicket to spare. Those skills were evident in national T20 cricket though. He had a fine season with Worcestershire in the Friends Life t20 in England in July 2013 and a ground-breaking Caribbean Premier League a month later when his group Jamaica Tallawahs became winners.
Throughout the most prosperous period of his T20 profession, however, a cloud hung over Russell since the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission had billed him for not submitting his whereabouts clause three times in 2015, a crime tantamount to a failed dope test. Following hearings that went over a year, Russell was found guilty of a whereabouts-clause breach and prohibited for one year by an independent doping panel in Jamaica. His ban period eventually got over and he began playing in the national T-20 leagues. He had a fantastic outing from the IPL 2019 and has been their most valuable player in that season.
He’s married to Jassym Lora since of 2016. He has a daughter called Aaliyah Russell.
