Andre Dwayne Russell (born 29 April 1988) is a Jamaican cricketer. Russell plays for the West Indies internationally and for Jamaica in West Indian domestic cricket, as an all-rounder. He bats predominantly in the middle order for the West Indies. Widely regarded as the biggest hitter of the cricket ball, Russell once scored a century in 42 balls (3 fours and 11 sixes) in CPL against Trinbago Knight Riders. He also took a hat-trick in the same match. Thus he became the only player after Joe Denly to take a hat-trick and score a century in the same match.
In the season
On 21 September 2013, in a match against India A he became the first bowler in T20 to take 4 wickets in 4 successive deliveries taking the wickets of Kedar Jadhav, Yuvraj Singh, Naman Ojha and Yusuf Pathan.
A fast bowling
He made his ODI debut in the 2011 Cricket World Cup match against Ireland at Mohali. He scored only 3, and was bowled by John Mooney, as his side went through a lower-order collapse to be bowled out for 275 from 267/6. However, he impressed with the ball, taking 1/37 from his 10 overs (2 maidens) and had bowled set Ed Joyce (84 off 106), and breaking a 91-run partnership with Gary Wilson to halt the fluent Irish run-chase. That proved to be the turning-point and West Indies won by 44 runs. He also took 2/46 against India in the 2011 Cricket World Cup at Chennai.
