Dubai: Andre Russell, the explosive West Indies all-rounder, believes that his team can retain the World T20 crown later this year in Australia.

“We are going to win the World Cup and there are no two ways about it. We have to go into the World Cup wanting to win and having that mindset — you cannot think that some team is better than us,” he said.

Speaking to Gulf News during an exclusive interview on the sidelines of the Zurich Cricket Sixes tournament, organised by Zurich in the Middle East at the Sevens Stadium on Friday, Russell felt the West Indies will be a power again. “A lot needs to be still done. We are looking towards ourselves and trying to bring back the old days of winning series and winning the fans again. This won’t happen overnight and we all have to make sure that whatever tournament we take part, we do our best that we can.”

Will Russell pass the fitness test? Running 40 with a bad knee might be hard..

Big Bravo already failed the test so I expect him to get drop like Hety and Lewis.

Then again the skipper ran mid 30s and they still select him.. So anything possible big grin

It is amazing to me that you could put out a bombshell statement and it does not even get a response.We have all been conditioned to accept the unacceptable as outrageous things happen every day so nothing is deemed outrageous anymore.

that is highly unlikely.

the Tits are large and in charge

when something is going on positive with them there is a spike in their postings

We would like to win the cup but on vast Oz grounds, our six hitters getting caught on the boundary.

This ain’t Lanka or Hindia.

India says they will Dhoni...what has he done lately? The fact is he doesnt need to do anything lately

Gayle does not have to do anything lately either....as long as he is fit...and wants to play...I will play him....this will drive fear in the hearts of opposing teams

What is Russell’s record playing for WI? Is it any good??
For a man who only avg 17.88 batting without any 50s and a bowling economy of 9.15 in T20I for WI he definately got a bag a mout!
