Andre Russel, the star player from West Indies has shown interest to make a comeback in the national team, but only if his side of terms are adhered to. Now what those terms are, is something unclear to say but as per published news on Sky Sports, Russel was seen quoting,

“Because at the end of the day, we had a discussion, and the discussion was very clear. So now, making me look bad, throwing me under the bus… I was expecting it. I’m going to stay quiet”

The post made on Instagram was later deleted by Russel.

Currently, Andre is in England playing for “Manchester Originals” in the tournament “The Hundred”

After his two hundreds (Centuries) for his franchise, Darren Sammy (the former WI player) during his interaction with Russel, asked about his plans about playing for the national team. Without any delay, Russel responded,

“Of course, of course. The maroon is all over,” he said. “Honestly, I have two franchise hundreds and I wish those hundreds were actually playing for West Indies. I don’t regret saying this just now. I really enjoyed playing for Jamaica Tallawahs but those two hundreds, it would be more special coming in international cricket”

He added further,

“I always want to play and give back. But, at the end of the day, if we are not agreeing on certain terms, you terms is my terms [sic], and they have to respect my terms as well. At the end of the day, it is what it is. We have families and we have to make sure that we give our best opportunity while we have one career.

“It’s not like I can start over again. I’m 34 and I want to win another World Cup – or two more – for West Indies because, at the end of the day, I’m here now, and I’m just taking it day by day.”

Right after “The Hundred” tournament which will end on 3rd of September, the 34-year-old veteran will be playing in the home league known as CPL (Caribbean Premier League) under the franchisee “Trinbago Knight Riders” and the former cricketer and now lead selector has made it all clear for all its players, suggesting the players with performances in the tournament will be given preferences during world cup selection. He further added,

“If there is a competition that is run by the West Indies [and] somebody is playing well, I think his name should really come up for selection,”
