    Andre Russell, a West Indian cricketer, has chosen his Indian Premier League team, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), over his country. He has been part of KKR for nine years and considers the team special due to the support they have given him. Russell has scored 108 runs and taken five wickets so far in IPL 2023 for KKR. He praised KKR for sending him for proper treatment on his knees, something that no other franchise or even his country has invested in. He also expressed his respect for KKR CEO Venky Mysore. Russell celebrated his 35th birthday on April 29, 2023. He has played for West Indies in 56 ODIs and 67 T20Is.
