CHRISTCHURCH – He came out to prove that the West Indies are not a “fly by night” team and Andre Russell certainly got that message across against Pakistan yesterday.

Russell was the architect and entertainer on centre stage at the Hagley Oval as the West Indies got their ICC World Cup campaign up and running  with a big victory by 150 runs.

“People wrote us off after the Ireland match. I read some harsh things and today we decided we were coming out all guns blazing with every man making an impact,” Russell told SUNSPORT.
