A power-hitter, hit-the-deck bowler, and gun fielder, Russell is a serial winner in T20 cricket. The allrounder has won the T20 World Cup twice, CPL twice with Jamaica Tallawahs in 2013 and 2016, BPL in 2016-17 with Dhaka Dynamites and with Rajshahi Royals in 2019-20, IPL with Kolkata Knight Riders in 2014, BBL with Sydney Thunder in 2016, and PSL with Islamabad United in 2016. A high-impact player, which also leaves him injury-prone, Russell won the Player-of-the-Tournament prize in IPL 2015 and 2019, CPL in 2016, and most recently at the BPL, where he led the Royals to the title, and was also the Player of the Final. His best all-round individual display - and probably the best for any player - came in CPL 2018, when he followed a hat-trick with a 40-ball century - the fastest in the tournament - against Trinbago Knight Riders. It is his ability to hit sixes at any point that stands out: Russell is 52nd on the T20 run-scoring charts, but is already in fifth spot on the most sixes list. His strike rate of 171.29 is the highest by a distance among batsmen with over 1000 T20 runs (the next-best is Colin de Grandhomme's 161.23).

Raina, second on the list of top IPL run-scorers, built his T20 reputation as a mainstay at No. 3 for the Chennai Super Kings, with his run-scoring consistency making him a sure-shot in the team XI - he played a record 158 consecutive matches for the franchise. Three-time IPL and two-time Champions League T20 winner. When CSK were banned for two years, he took over captaincy at the Gujarat Lions. Raina played in India's first ever T20I, in 2006, but didn't make the 2007 T20 World Cup squad. He featured in the next five editions, scoring India's first T20I hundred in 2010. Usually a steady accumulator, there were moments when Raina could blitz opposition attacks, like against Kings XI Punjab in in 2013. And on turning tracks, he was a back-up bowling option relied upon by MS Dhoni.
