 West Indian all-rounder Andre Russel has a blast Jamaica Tallawah team management and feels they are  very weird as well

‘’I'm a guy that plays to win," Russell said on his Instagram recently.

"And I've won 13 championships [T20 titles]. So, I don't play to lose. If I'm picking a friend I believe in that friend. But the way Tallawahs went about things, that first, they went in in the draft, on the day of the draft, I was trying to reach out to these people. No reply."

Russell said his intention was to "clear the air". "During the draft still tried to reach out to these guys. No reply. After the draft, they messaged me and asked me if I was happy with the team picked. I took a while to reply because I was disappointed."

Russell said he was happy to take a "pay cut" to stay with the Tallawahs only to play in front of his "home crowd, my family and friends." He said several other franchises in CPL were ready to pay him more than what the Tallawahs were paying him. But for Russell, "loyalty" was important.

Russell felt Reifer did not want him to be captain of the side. "All of these things happened because of Floyd Reifer gonna be the coach. He doesn’t want to have me as the captain because he wants to have someone he can actually talk to. Rovman Powell and Floyd Reifer have a good relationship and I respect that,’’ he concluded.

Earlier West Indian opener Chris Gayle lambasted Tallawah’s for inappropriate gestures.
