Andre Russell moves past Dwayne Bravo to create all-time record for West Indies at ICC Men’s T20 World Cup

Andre Rusell added yet another feather to his illustrious cap when the star West Indian allrounder dismissed Reeza Hendricks in the Super Eight clash between South Africa and West Indies at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua.

Russell, 36, moved past the former West Indian allrounder Dwayne Bravo to become the leading wicket-taker for the Men in Maroon in the history of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. Russell claimed yet another wicket to help the West Indies get rid of Quinton de Kock and come roaring back into the contest.

Russell’s double whammy has rattled South Africa and they need to get their act together to qualify for the semifinals alongside England from Group 2. The Proteas started the game on a positive note dismissing Shai Hope and Nicholas Pooran inside the first two overs.

Left-arm wrist spinner Tabraiz Shamsi justified the team management’s call to include him in the playing XI at the expense of Ottneil Baartman. Shamsi got the big wickets of Kyle Mayers, Sherfane Rutherford and Roston Chase and finished with excellent figures of 3/27 in his four overs.
