Kingston, June 22: West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell was on Thursday unveiled as the skipper of two-time Caribbean Premier League (CPL) champions Jamaica Tallawahs during the 2018 season, starting August 8.
Russell, who missed the previous season because of a doping violation that earned him a year-long ban, will take over from former Sri Lanka skipper Kumar Sangakkara.
“It’s a good feeling, honestly, I missed out last year due to one-year suspension. I’m looking forward to it,” Russell was quoted as saying.
“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,” he added.
After coming out of the suspension in January, Russell played an entire season for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL), scoring 316 runs in 14 innings, apart from picking up 13 wickets.
