Andre Russell will play in the LPL 2020 without telling the West Indies cricket board
Andre Russell, who said ‘no’ to the New Zealand tour, will play in the Lanka Premier League LPL 2020 without informing the West Indies Cricket Board. West Indies coach Phil Simmons was surprised to hear that the all-rounder, who is suffering from an injury problem in the IPL, is playing in Sri Lanka.
The West Indies gave up three Twenty20s and two Tests against New Zealand last October. Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis moved with Russell at that time. Many questions are being raised about Andre Russell in the Lanka premier league LPL 2020without visiting New Zealand. Simmons told a news conference on Wednesday that he did not know the current position of the pace-bowling all-rounder.

“Is he there (in Sri Lanka)? This is news for me. I haven’t spoken to him since we came here (New Zealand). He was in the IPL and I have not had any contact with him since then. I did not know that he was in Sri Lanka. I can’t say anything about it without knowing the whole situation. ”The Colombo Kings picked Russell from the LPL draft last October. At times, the Caribbean withdrew from the Sri Lankan tournament citing fitness reasons. However, he later confirmed the game.
Russell’s Colombo Kings will face off in the first match on Thursday against the Candy Taskers. The next day, the West Indies will play their first T20 against New Zealand. The next two matches will be on Sunday and Monday.
