Star all-rounder and Jamaica Tallawahs captain Andre Russell played one of the greatest knocks of all time in T20 cricket. He came into bat at number 7 against Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) when his team was 41/5 in the chase of 224 runs, but Russell's 121* runs off just 49 balls helped his team to chase down this total with three balls to spare. Andre Russell hit 6 fours and 13 sixes in his innings and needed just 40 balls to complete his ton.
Earlier, Russell had also taken a hat-trick in TKR, as he removed McCullum, Darren Bravo and Denesh Ramdin from the last three balls of the innings.
