‘Not ideal’: Carlos Brathwaite costs the team a 5-point penalty with a bad lineout. Watch | Cricket News


Do you remember Carlos Brathwaite? The hero of the West Indies in the 2016 ICC T20 World Final, who netted four straight sixes to bring his team home against England after his side needed 19 on the last. It was his first World Cup. Later that year, he also captained the West Indies team in the T20I matches against India. He also took part in the 2019 ICC ODI World Cup. After playing for several Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises, Brathwaite is currently competing in the Vitality T20 Blast in England. He leads the Birmingham Bears in the tournament.

However, in a recent match against Derbyshire, he can be seen embroiled in a tough clash. After playing Derbyshire batsman Wayne Madsen on the third ball from the 13th over, Brathwaite returned the ball to the batter during the follow-up. The ball hit the batter in the leg. Due to the incident, Brathwaite’s team conceded five penalty points. Batting first, the Bears had scored 159/7. Derbyshire chased the target with 11 balls remaining. Brathwaite scored 18 in the game and took 1/29 with his bowling.

Earlier, before the start of the tournament in April, Brathwaite decided to gain some playing experience in English conditions under his belt, joining Birmingham & District Premier League club Knowle and Dorridge Cricket Club. But the 2016 WT20 winner had a day to forget in his first game.

In the game against Leamington CC, Brathwaite finished as his team’s most expensive bowler giving up 31 runs in 4 overs. His outing with bat proved even worse as he was dismissed for a first-ball duck as Knowle and Dorridge Cricket Club lost the game by 12 runs.


To make matters worse, Brathwaite’s car was also stolen. It was a terrible start to life at the club, which prompted the West Indian to share his experience on Twitter.

“What a day yesterday – First bowling in a game after a six month injury – First ball in a long jump – Car stolen But you know what, I woke up this morning, the sun is shining and giving thanks,” Brathwaite wrote on Twitter .
