West Indies Power Player Returns After 2-Year

One of the finest and destructive West Indies all-rounders Andre Russell returned to the home team for the T20 series against England after 2 years. 

He was last seen in the international circuit on 6th November 2021 where he played against Australia. His hard hitting skills are well known and can easily change things within a few seconds. 

Also the T20 World Cup is going to start from 4th June – 30th June and the matches will be played in West Indies and USA. Therefore Russell’s addition will be a boost to the team ahead of the tournament.

Rovman Powell will be seen leading the team while Shai Hope will be his deputy. 

Caribbean head selector Desmond Haynes said, “This will be the final home T20 series for the West Indies in 2023, as they prepare to be one of the two host teams for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in the West Indies and USA in June 2024. We have selected a squad that we think gives us the best chance of success in that tournament. We will continue to assess in the lead up to the competition.”
