Russell power hauls West Indies home in shortened chase

Russell power hauls West Indies home in shortened chase



Coming into the T20I series, there were some concerns over Andre Russell's fitness. In addition to a hamstring niggle, there were fresh concerns over his knees.

He missed two ODIs last week, but roared back into his favourite format with a match-winning unbeaten 21-ball 35 in a stiff 91 chase off 11 overs.

West Indies, who slipped to 10 for 2 by the second over in a revised chase - Bangladesh originally made 143 for 8 before rain came down - waltzed home in the end with 11 balls to spare.

After the match, a "bit worried" Russell, who was promoted to No. 3, said while he wasn't yet 100 percent fit, he was "happy enough to be playing at probably 95%."
