He’s a fantastic player who generates a lot of enthusiasm,” Finch
Andre Russell’s teammate Aaron Finch has also praised him for an incredible season so far as he said, “I’ve played with him in the Big Bash previously. He’s a fantastic player who generates a lot of enthusiasm.”
“He can bowl fast and hit the ball far. People enter through the gates to keep an eye on him. He’s great to have on your team since he can change the game with the ball or bat. He’s just ridiculously powerful.”
