West Indies all-rounder and one of the brightest stars of the white-ball cricket, Andre Russell, showed off his newly bought Mercedes-Benz AMG car during his time-off from cricket after the conclusion of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. He said that he always dreams big and that dreams become reality with hard work and sacrifices. 

The star all-rounder was retained by KKR for the 2022 season for a whopping Rs 12 crore and had a successful individual season with the team. Russell’s former KKR and West Indies teammates such as Suryakumar Yadav, Chris Gayle, Sheldon Cottrell, and Darren Sammy reacted in awe to his social media post boasting his car. Russell has currently taken some time off cricket following his season with KKR as he is not part of the West Indies squad that is on the Pakistan tour for the ongoing three-match One-day International (ODI) series. 

Russell, with a video of him entering his newly bought car on Instagram, wrote, “As a ghetto yute I always dream big! But with hard work and sacrifices dreams become reality. God is good.”

Andre Russell starred yet again in IPL with a struggling KKR team

KKR did not have a great 2022 season as they managed only six wins in 14 games, finishing at seventh in the league table. But the silver lining for the two-time IPL champions yet again was the individual contribution of the big Jamaican. He scored 335 runs at an average of over 37 and at a strike rate of almost 174.48, and also picked up 17 wickets with the best bowling figures of four wickets for 5 runs, in 14 matches. The 34-year-old has been with KKR since 2014 and has been one of the first names on the team sheet ever since.

Russell has not been part of the national team as he last played for the Windies in November 2021 in the Twenty20 (T20) World Cup against Australia, although he is expected to feature again in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup later in the year.
