Cape Town - West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell will represent the Knights in South Africa's local T20 domestic competition this season, Volksblad reports.

The 26-year-old T20 specialist was a member of the Kolkata Knight Riders team that won the Indian Premier League (IPL) earlier this year.

Russell currently plays for Kolkata in the Champions League T20 event in India. He hammered 58 off just 25 balls in their first game of the tournament against Chennai Super Kings.

Russell, who boasts 1 Test, 30 ODI and 35 T20 internationals for the Windies, also plays for the Jamaica Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premier League.

The local RAM SLAM T20 competition will be played in November and December this year, with the Knights starting their campaign on November 2 against the Warriors at the Wanderers in Johannesburg.

The competition kicks off that day, with all six franchises gathering at the Bullring to start the campaign. The Cape Cobras will also face the Titans, while in the main game the Highveld Lions will duel the Dolphins.
