andre the russell

There is something about Andre Russell, and yesterday just reminded me of it. If you are still undecided about him, I put a list together of Andre’s awesomeness.

Andre has a mohawk, well its more like a modern style fashionable mohawk, but it’s definitely not a fauxhawk, at worst it is mohawklite, which is still pretty cool.

This mohawklite glistens amazingly well when he is bowling.

Andre is W less. Andrew Russell would be a rubbish name for a big hitting all rounder.

He seems to actually like playing cricket, .

Wears a silver necklace, not a gold one, it makes all the difference.

Is athletic and keen in the field, moves to the ball like someone who was invented for the purpose.

When he has a good game, it’s hide your kids, hide your wife good. He doesn’t just burn your house down, he cluster bombs every house in your neighbourhood, releases a pathogen in your city and then goes house to house with a gas mask on with a home made ax to hack up any survivors (before taking a break and watching his team mates help save the city and rebuild the houses).

Sometimes pretends to be pulling out of a ball only to then go through with it, it’s a Keyser Soze delivery.

Clicks his heals together after taking a catch.

Has the highest score ever made in an ODI batting at 9.

Bowls really well to left handers, sure its becuase he falls over at the crease, but there are a lot of left handers in the world for him to fall over for.

When he hits the ball, it stays hit. Unlike other cricketers, who hit the ball but after a while the ball just stops being hit. When Andre hits the ball it stays hit forever.

Is cricket with balls own.

    The main problem I have with the sudden rave about Andre Russell is that he doesn’t actually appear to be a very good bowler.

    This tends to get overlooked.

    tough to call him a bowler…his speed is equal to collingwood or trott

  3. well west indies need to promote him up in the order or else they would be staring a 5-0 drubbing at the hands of a second string india side.

    He boshes the ball like a modern day 20/20 player but has some form of defensive technique. Some of those blocks were giving me a semi.

    He looks a shit load like Michael Johnson, bling and all.

    He would be a fantastic ambassador for Soul Glo.

    He makes Kemar Roach want to be a better batsman.

    @hi: Are you kidding? I haven’t been watching this series but I saw him hit 140 regularly in the WC.

  6. hi says:

    I take it back. I saw the last match ..he has an average speed of 83 mph which is not bad. Roach seems much faster on tv compared to this guy
