Being part of several top domestic leagues, Russell has experienced the competition levels in each league. In a recent interview with Geo News, the West Indian compared PSL with other leagues.

He said, “I play IPL, I play big bash or Caribbean Premier League. I play in other leagues around the world. And I’m definitely gonna say that PSL is one of the top leagues around the world.”

The biggest difference between PSL and other leagues is the quality of pace bowling that each team possesses. This makes it difficult for batsmen to get in the groove and score monumental knocks.
