by June 14th, 2019

West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell became the third player forced to leave the field due to injury during Friday’s Cricket World Cup game against England at the Rose Bowl. 

Putting extra effort into a short-pitched delivery that struck Jonny Bairstow on the helmet, the paceman fell in his follow through and had to be helped off the field.

So often a dynamite player for the Windies, Russell also needed treatment whilst batting after striking consecutive sixes, with additional support being given to his wrist.

Russell has been troubled by a knee problem, hobbling off in his side’s crushing win over Pakistan.

Batting first The west Indies scrambled to 212 all out with Nicholas Pooran leading the way with 63, and England in reply led by a century(second of the tournament) from man of the match Joe Root defeated the Caribbean men by eight wickets with 101 balls to spare after getting over the line after 213 for 2.
