Andre Russell to stay two meters away from his teammates
CRICDOT DESK : West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell will make his debut at the Melbourne Stars on Friday, December 10th in a match against Sydney Thunder at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground. However, Jamaicans must follow some strict rules before facing Chris Green Thunder. First of all, the veteran is not allowed to touch his teammates.
Russell needs to enter the MCG from another gate and use another elevator to put himself in the changing room. When warming up, he must keep a distance of at least 2 meters from the player and coach. His shelter is also different from other teammates.
Russell failed to give a high five after receiving the wicket, and another microphone was set up for him during a post-match interview. When leaving the floor, Russell must leave his teammates and return to his teammates after seven days of quarantine.
Fox Sports reports that Cricket Australia drafted the rules and shared them with the stars. This decision was made with the health and well-being of cricket players in the COVID 19 pandemic in mind.
I can’t wait to work with Andre Russell, says David Hassei. Meanwhile, Stars head coach David Hassei was pleased to see Russell join the T20 Championship mix. Blair Krauch, General Manager of the Stars, was also overjoyed after the Caribbean cricket player joined his team.
“It is a big duty for our club to hire Andre’s quality people for the Melbourne Stars. We have the Stars family see the best MCG players and Andre becomes world class. I can’t wait to work with him while he’s here and look forward to his debut on Friday night.
“I can’t wait to see Andre in front of a large crowd at MCG this summer. At Stars, we’re always looking to be a world-class player that our members and fans can admire, and Andre comfortably falls into that category. I look forward to entertaining and inspiring him against Thunder at MCG on Friday, “Clauch said.
