Where did Russell and Narine start the fire as soon as they were dropped from the West Indies T20 World Cup squad?
Andre Russell and Sunil Narine performed well with the ball in the CPL. Russell took 3 wickets in 2.5 overs. Whereas, Sunil Narine added color with both the ball and the bat.
They say if you have guts, will you see? Two West Indies players – Andre Russell and Sunil Narine – have also done well on their own. Done at the right time. And, if told directly, through this show of power, both the players have hit two targets with one arrow. One, both of them together won the match for their team and secondly, they also gave this message to those who chose the West Indies team that there is still power. Well now you must be thinking that where did such a style of Naren and Russell show up? So this has been seen in the match of Caribbean Premier League on 14 September.
‘Fire’ spewed in the match played after team selection
In the CPL on September 14, the match was between Trinbago Knight Riders and Guyana Amazon Warriors. In this match, both Russell and Naren were part of Trinbago Knight Riders. The same team also batted first in the match and scored 150 runs for 8 wickets in 20 overs. But, in reply, Guyana Warriors could not score the required 151 runs to win and lost the match by 26 runs.
Only these two were heavy on half the team
Now Guyana’s team lost because two Trinbago players Andre Russell and Sunil Narine did not win them. Only these two players overshadowed half of Guyana’s team. Sunil Narine was seen opening his hand with the bat even before the ball. But, the real fire that these two have set is with the ball.
Now you must be thinking that what did both of them do together, so just look at their figure related to the match. Andre Russell bowled only 2.5 overs against Guyana, in which he took 3 wickets for 16 runs. At the same time, Narine dismissed 2 players in 4 overs but gave only 9 runs. Meaning both together lost 5 wickets for just 25 runs. Not only this, the economy of the bowling of both was also excellent.
Not only in the team who made the champions of West Indies
Both of them are players who have played a lot of cricket for West Indies. He has also been made a world champion. But, the latest reality is that Narine has not played any match for West Indies since 2019 and Russell since last year’s T20 World Cup. Narine was not selected in the West Indies team citing unavailability while Russell’s absence has been linked to his poor form.
