Andrew Russell is a Jamaican cricketer, who plays from the national side of West Indies since 2011. Russell appears in all formats of the game and represents Jamaican team in domestic circuit. He plays as an all-rounder, who bats as a right-handed middle-order batsman and bowls in a right-arm fast style. He is one of the best all-rounders in the Caribbean squad at present times and probably the most successful West Indian player in twenty20 franchise.
Russell used to play for Under-19 and List-A team before he was selected for the national cricket team of West Indies in 2011.

Besides cricket career, he also runs a successful second profession as a recording artist since 2014.
