Andre Russell, who had previously played in the Jamaican Tallahassee, played very poorly last season. He scored only 160 runs in 10 innings and took 11 wickets. Although Narine had previously played separately with Pollard and Russell in the CPL, Pollard and Russell will play in the same team for the first time. All three of them are busy in IPL now. Evin Lewis, Andre Fletcher, Sherfan Rutherford and Sheldon Cottrell will also play in St. Kitts and Nevis.
