    They don’t call him Superman for nothing.

    By the time Andre Russell was a little more than five years into international cricket, he was a two-time world champion. That both titles came in the T20 format defines the kind of cricketer he is. A batsman who hits the ball hard enough to make the inanimate thing scream for mercy, he functions primarily as a finisher. He generates even more pace with the ball in hand and when it is anywhere near him in the field, it doesn't matter at what pace it's travelling, Russell will probably get to it. He is less of a cricketer, in the traditional sense, and more of an athlete.

    He made his way into the West Indies A squad and captured plenty of attention with his exploits in a 50-over game against Ireland in June 2010, smashing 61 off 34 balls and taking 6 for 42. It was a performance that helped him win a place in West Indies' 2011 World Cup squad.

    Russell's star shone brightest at the IPL 2015 when he was named Man of the Tournament, and the Big Bash League 2015-16 when he struck at 186.86 and picked up 16 wickets - joint-second best - from 10 matches.

    He won the CPL title with the Jamaica Tallawahs in 2013, the IPL title with Kolkata Knight Riders in 2014, the Bangladesh Premier League title with Comilla Victorians, the BBL title with Sydney Thunder and the Pakistan Super League title with Islamabad United in 2016.

    Dwayne Bravo's skills and self-confidence on the big stage made him a match-winner in T20 cricket. Dangerous with the bat and cunning with the ball, Bravo proved his worth wherever he plied his trade.

    He hit 107 against South Africa in April 2004-05 at Antigua to bring up his maiden century and in November 2005, scored a magnificent 113 against Australia at Hobart. He dazzled in the ODI series against India in May 2006, bamboozling the batsmen with his slower ones and chipping in with match-winning contributions with the bat.

    He grew as a player in the limited-overs format in the 2006-07 season with a fluent unbeaten 112, his maiden ODI ton, against England in the Champions Trophy and achieved his best career figures, 4 for 39, against India in the last game before the World Cup.

    His value as a Twenty20 player came into focus in the IPL, especially for the Chennai Super Kings for whom he became a fixture. In the 2013 season, he led the wickets tally with 32.

    He was the first bowler to take 400 wickets in the format and is about to become the first to take 500 wickets, currently boasting an impressive haul of 497 T20 wickets.

    With the typical Caribbean flair and the ability to make it look effortless, Samuels can be a tough proposition on his day and win it for his side single-handedly.

    Combining all those abilities he chalked out a crucial 78 in the ICC World T20 2012 final, one of the finest innings in the shortest version of the sport, to help West Indies take a world title home. The way he took on Lasith Malinga, the deadliest limited overs bowler in the world, was a testament to his talent.

    Samuels was also part of various T20 leagues in the year 2012. He was bought by Duronto Rajshahi and played the Bangladesh Premier League, and was even the team's highest run-scorer with 242 runs in 11 innings in the competition. In the same year, he signed a contract with Pune and represented them in the fifth and sixth IPL editions.
