CAPE TOWN, South Africa – Allrounder Andre Russell is 'aiming big' as he suits up for West Indies team against South Africa in the upcoming three-match T20 International Series.

The 26-year-old believes he has a key role to play in the team and also spoke about his training routines, his improved speed and accuracy with the ball, and recent good allround form in the local league in South Africa.

West Indies had a full training session on Wednesday and will have another session on Thursday afternoon at the Newlands. The two teams will meet in the series-opener on Friday at the same venue. First ball is 6pm (12 noon Eastern Caribbean Time/11 am Jamaica Time).
