West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo slammed five consecutive sixes in an over in a match between Shah Rukh Khan-owned Trinbago Knight Riders and St Kitts and Nevis in a Caribbean Premier League (CPL) match on Sunday. The veteran all-rounder showed why he is still regarded as one of the best game-changers in the T20 format of cricket.
Bravo, who faced his first delivery in the 17th over of the match, settled down with few quick singles and a pull in Ben Cutting’s 18th over. However, in the 19th over, Bravo went all berserk with his bat after he missed a pull shot off the first delivery from his West Indian teammate Alzarri Joseph. He hammered, sliced and tonked the ball in the next five deliveries leaving Joseph and his teammates from St Kitts and Nevis in awe and shock at the same time.
The 34-year-old scored 37 runs off 11 balls in his blasting cameo as his team Trinbago Knight Riders posted a total of 199 for 4.
Later, Trinbago Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan took to micro-blogging platform Twitter to congratulate the team and their backroom staff for the victory against St Kitts and Nevis.
"It’s well worth keeping awake when our team @TKRiders plays such an all round game. Well done boys keep doing wot u doing...& the think tank keep thinking as u r thinking!!," wrote Shah Rukh Khan.
Earlier, David Willey had smashed Aussie spinner Nathan Lyon for five consecutive biggies in a match between Prime Minister’s XI and England in Canberra.
