#9 Russell has played only one Test match in his career

The West Indian
The West Indian's only Test match appearance came in 2010 against Sri Lanka

Despite the marvelous numbers that Andre Russell has in the shorter formats of the game, it was the red-ball cricket where Russell wore the West Indies jersey for the first time. Way back in November 2010, a 22-year-old Andre Russell made his international debut against Sri Lanka. He was chosen in the playing XI as a primary fast bowler and not an all-rounder.

In his only Test innings, Russell scored mere 2 runs after coming out to bat at no. 10. Interestingly, he took 9 balls to add those 2 runs and thus, if you look at his Test numbers even today his batting strike rate column indicates the number 22.22.

With the ball, he scalped the wicket of Tillakratne Dilshan in the first innings and unfortunately, till date Dilshan remains to be his only Test wicket.

Looking at the way things have gone in the past few years, it is highly unlikely that we may see Russell in the white jersey once again.
