West Indies all-rounder Andrew Russell has Keen to return to the Big Bash next summer. That was in response to a question asked after playing the final match for the Melbourne Star team in the Big Bash League last Monday.
Russell joined the Melbourne Stars for five games in the Big Bash League, scoring 83 in their final game with an strike rate of 162. In the second match, Russell scored a quickfire 42 not out off 21 balls.
He also mentioned “I’m really looking forward to cashing in on some good performance for the stars.”
Furthermore “This is a good bunch of guys and they made me feel at home and I really want to do something special before I exit this half of the tournament,” he said.
When asked if he would like to come here next summer, he replied “Of course”.
He further he said, ” I always enjoy these conditions, the ball coming on good to the bat. You bowl fast, you get results, so at the end of the day looking forward to play in big bash is always a priority. Sometimes west indies tours and all these things fall wrong time. But I’m happy to be back if these guys want to me back, that why i try and do something special so they have something to think about.”
Russell said he was looking forward to resting up with some time at home before the upcoming series against Ireland and England.
” I wish I could stay longer but at the end of the day it is what it is. Hopefully I can just get my body a bit of rest from cpl , straight into ipl then the T20 world cup and now I’m here so it is been a long way on the road.”
