Bravo hits five sixes in an over in TKR’s win
Dwayne Bravo has smashed five sixes in an over in Trinbago Knight Riders’ 46-run win over St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in match 23 of Caribbean Premier League 2018 at Warner Park, Basseterre.
Trinbago posted 199/5 after being sent in to bat first. New Zealander Colin Munro top-scored with unbeateb 76 runs off 50 deliveries including 3 fours and 5 sixes. His countryman Brendon McCullum made 35.
TKR skipper Dwayne Bravo came at the crease in the 17th over when his brother Darren was dismissed.
The 19th over bowled by Alzarri Joseph turned out to be real productive one for the Knight Riders. Bravo missed a pull shot on the first ball. He heaved, crashed and sliced over the rope in the next five balls. He hit everywhere from behind square leg to third man, over long on and beyond deep extra cover.
Bravo remained not out on 11-ball 37 runs. Before that over, Joseph conceded only 13 runs in three overs. Bravo took him for 30 runs in his last over.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots managed 153/8 in 20 overs, handing a 46-run victory to TKR. Evin Lewis hit two fours and 5 sixes in his 37-ball 52-run knock. Captain Chris Gayle made only nine runs in the game.
