All-rounder Andre Russell has been named the captain of Jamaica Tallawahs for the upcoming edition of the Caribbean Premier League, starting August 8.
“It’s a good feeling, honestly, I missed out last year due to one-year suspension. I’m looking forward to it, not just looking forward to play but looking forward to being the captain for the Jamaica Tallawahs, as well and looking forward to doing a good job,” Russell said.
Russell is also excited about leading Afridi in the tournament with who he’s spent a lot of time at the Pakistan Super League. “It’s going to be interesting, I’ve played against Shahid before, he’s a good guy. Even in Dubai after we played, we go out on a boat together, just enjoy each other’s company,” Russel included.
