All the teams have retained their old squads even though there are a few changes. The 2021 CPL will enjoy a clash between two of the all-time best cricket players. Andre Russell, who happens to be one of the most feared right-handed players, will be up against the quick-witted Dwayne Bravo.

Head-to-head Statistics

Andre Russell: At 33 yrs of age, the strong man has played hundreds of games. He is a right-handed batsman with an impeccable fast right-arm bowling style. His career featured excellence in his all-around skills. Even though he was banned for a doping claim in 2014, he made a comeback a year later to continue with his winning ways. For instance, in 2018, Russell made a mark in the IPL tirade with two games to make a mark, again!

A ferocious 36-ball 88, which included 11 sixes and 1 four, exhibited his distinct skill and love for the game. He is also popular with the cricket world as the only player to have snatched four wickets in four balls. However, a recent review about his skill shows some weakness in his batting. But once this player is up and running, he seems never to go back!

Dwayne Bravo: At the age of 37 yrs. Dwayne is famous for being a smart street player. This right-handed, medium-fast arm bowler's batting style cannot be underestimated. At the IPL, Bravo is also an astonishing fielder- this has made him one of the best sought-after names in the T20 league over the years. Bravo can bowl as a conventional seam bowler. Besides, he has excelled in the slog overs of the innings. At the peak of his career, he won lucrative offers from T20 leagues.

His career has not experienced major hurdles apart from being sacked as a captain, at one point by a West Indies side that saw him out of his career briefly. Bravo's success in cricket stems from his ventures in the franchise leagues. Bravo was at his best in the 2017- 2018 BBL season. He is also an entertaining player with several playing antics up his sleeves. Even though his power has waned, he is an exquisite experience that cannot be underestimated. Not even by his opponents, including the Jamaica Tallawahs.
