WATCH: Brathwaite and Simmons get in heated argument over bizarre run-out appeal in CPL 2019
Over a bizarre run-out appeal during the knockout game in the ongoing Carribean Premier League (CPL), St Kitts and Nevis Patriots skipper Carlos Brathwaite was engaged in a heated argument with Trinbago Knight Riders opener Lendl Simmons.
The incident took place during the 8th over of the Knight Riders’ innings when Simmons was batting in the middle with Dinesh Ramdin. Knight Riders were reeling losing 3 wickets at 35 after 7 overs while chasing a target of 126.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots’ bowler Fabian Allen bowled a straight delivery to Ramdin who flicked the ball towards square for a single. With the ball being dead, Ramdin walked out of the pitch to chat with his partner Lendl Simmons.
Patriots’ skipper Braithwaite went to the stumps, took the bails off and appeal for a run-out. Umpires turned down as the ball no longer being in play. Braithwaite was not calmed and diverted his attention to Ramdin.
Lendl Simmons lost his tamper and became engaged on a verbal dispute with Braithwaite. The argument got heated and at one point the umpire had to step in and separate the players.
As of the match, Knight Riders’ bowlers restricted the Patriots on a paltry total of 125/7 in 20 overs. Chris Jordan finished with the figures of 3/30 in his four overs.
In reply, Keiron Pollard’s quick fire 26 helped the team to win the match with eight deliveries to spare.
Karlos Brathwaite scored 51 runs.
