Andre Russell is one of the most explosive all-rounders currently in world cricket. The Caribbean all-rounder is famous for his swashbuckling batting and he plays all around the world for different T20 teams. Recently in an interview, the tall West Indian said that T10 is the format that can take this game to the Olympics.
Russell is going to participate in the Abu Dhabi T10 League in November and he will be participating in the tournament for Northern Warriors.
"It would be brilliant for cricket to become an Olympic sport and I know all players would love the opportunity of representing their country at an Olympic event," said Russell.
Northern Warriors are also the defending champions of the T10 League as they lifted the trophy last year in Sharjah under the captaincy of Darren Sammy.
