Rajshahi Royals skipper Andre Russell said on Friday that clinching the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League is ‘special’ as it was his first trophy as a captain.

‘’This one is definitely special to me because it is the first championship as captain,’’ Russell, who is the first foreign skipper to clinch the BPL, told reporters at the post match press conference on Friday.

‘’The pressure of bowling selection and all those things like dew in the game and also use myself when I have to bowl because as a captain you cannot  be selfish,’’ he said.

‘’You have to give the guy’s confidence and everybody answered and came to the party tonight,’’ he said.

Rajshahi Royals came up with a stellar performance to lift the trophy of the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BBPL) as they outclassed Khulna Tigers by 21 runs in the final at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Friday.

Russell said that his major emphasis was to look at his options in the nets and trying to figure out who can deliver at different juncture of the game.

‘’It was not that difficult, to be honest, .first week two practice sessions and couple of games and at that time gave us the time to know each player  and what they are all about,’’ said Russell.

‘’I look out every bowler at practice and see where I can use them each bowler .if that bowler is better with the new ball or middle over or in the death over .I look at that those things and take a few games,’’ he said.

‘’Everyone put up a good show like Rabbi bowled well tonight. Irfan doing well with the ball while Irfan Sukkur played well. I have been telling him to believe in himself and you can hit the ball big with power,’’ he said.

‘’Just stay positive and a big player should always talk with these guys that all they need to do is to move the mountain,’’ he said.
