Dre Russ overtakes Bravo to create a monumental feat for the West Indies in the T20 world Cup

Andre Russell achieved another accomplishment in his successful career when the talented West Indian player got Reeza Hendricks out during the important match between South Africa and West Indies at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua.

Russell, 36, surpassed the previous West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Bravo to become the top wicket-taker for the Men in Maroon in the history of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. Russell took another wicket, helping the West Indies dismiss Quinton de Kock and make a strong comeback in the game.

Russell’s strong performance has shaken South Africa, and they must improve their game to reach the semifinals with England from Group 2. South Africa began well by getting rid of Shai Hope and Nicholas Pooran in the first two overs.

Left-arm wrist spinner Tabraiz Shamsi proved the team management right for choosing him over Ottneil Baartman in the playing lineup. Shamsi took important wickets of Kyle Mayers, Sherfane Rutherford, and Roston Chase, ending with very good numbers of 3 wickets for 27 runs in his 4 overs. He had an economy rate of 6.75 and bowled 11 balls to put pressure on the other team.
