2012 Season Statistics
|Birth Date||29 April 1988|
The most exciting talent to emerge from the Caribbean in recent times, Andre Russell – a Jamaican all-rounder – was signed by the Delhi franchise for USD 450,000 at the IPL Player Auction 2012. Russell is a powerful striker of the ball and scored an unbeaten 92 in 2011 to rescue the West Indies from a delicate situation against India in an ODI. He operates as a change bowler, often sticking to a wicket-to-wicket line and using variations to outsmart batsmen. While he can be expensive at times, Russell generally picks up key wickets and is also a very athletic fielder with a good throwing arm.
