West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell’s explosive prowess with the bat was never in doubt and his latest knock, playing for Jamaica Tallawahs against Trinbago Knight Riders in the Caribbean Premier League, will just strengthen his case.

The swashbuckling batsman belted the opposition bowlers all around the park as he hit the fastest century in the history of the tournament. The Jamaican player, who hit his first T20 century tonight, took only 42 balls to achieve the milestone. The stunning innings was studded with 3 fours and 11 towering sixes. What makes the innings even more special is the fact that it came under very tough circumstances and in a very important match. His team was taking the Knight Riders in the third playoff of the season and a ticket for the final was at stake.

When Russell walked in to bat his team was in a tough situation after being reduced to 67 for 4 in the tenth over. However, Russell took a little time to settle and started hitting the bowlers all over the park. Russell reached his fifty in only 23 balls. He continued the massacre and reached the three-digit mark when he hit Anderson Phillip for a huge six down the ground. The whole Jamaica dugout was on its feet as Russell after taking his helmet off, kneeled down on the pitch to celebrate the monumental innings.His innings helped his team to collect 126 runs in the last ten overs as Jamaica posted a mammoth total of 195 for 7 in their 20 overs.

Enjoy the knock:

But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
