Andre: The Gaint Russell


During the 2012 Indian Premier League Players Auction, he was bought by the Delhi Daredevils for a sum of $450,000.[16] Ahead of the 2014 season he was bought by Kolkata Knight Riders and has been seen as a key batsman for the team in the later overs of matches. For his performances in 2015, he was named in the Cricinfo IPL XI for the season [17] He was on course to win the IPL Super Striker award in 2018, awarded for having the highest strike rate in the tournament, before being pipped by his teammate Sunil Narine. He eventually won it next year in the 2019 IPL, where he had a record IPL season strike rate[clarification needed] of over 205, and was also announced as the Player of the Tournament.


In an otherwise unsuccessful season, he emerged as both the highest run scorer and the highest wicket taker for his team, while also being the third highest run scorer in the tournament. He hit 52 sixes in the tournament; only Chris Gayle has hit more sixes in any single season of the IPL.[18]

For his performances in the 2019 IPL season, he was named in the Cricinfo IPL XI [19]
