Brotherly love took the back seat on Monday as former West Indies batsman Dwayne Smith took his sibling Kemar Smith to the cleaners. The Smiths were up against each other in a club game at Eden Lodge on the outskirts of Bridgetown, Barbados.
Dwayne Smith last played in international cricket in 2015 and does not play in high-profile T20 leagues either. However, the 37-year old is still capable of doing some damage with the willow as he smashed Kemar for a record six sixes in an over while opening the batting for his team Error Holder Stars against C.R.B.
Dwayne Smith the six sixes in a row in the very first over of the match which was also the final of the A&A Auto Parts Errol Holder Ten10 Classic, according to ESPNcricinfo.
The A&A Auto Parts Errol Holder Ten10 Classic is a competition recognised and authorised by the Barbados Cricket Association and boasts the involvement of several players who have represented West Indies or Barbados. Talking about Kemar, he is yet to make it to Barbados’ first-class team but the off-spinner has spent a couple of seasons as a professional in English cricket.
Dwayne Smith, however, showed Kemar that he still needs to do a lot more to make it big in the game. He hit his brother for six sixes in the first over to leave the pair’s on-looking mother, Lorraine Smith, understandably conflicted. The veteran batsman didn’t last long and was out after scoring 10 more runs. And as if being hit for six sixes in an over was not enough, Kemar was dismissed for a first ball duck by his brother when he came out to bat.
