Dwayne Bravo IPL 2018

Is there anything Dwayne Bravo cannot do on a cricket field? One of the finest all-rounders in T20 cricket, the Windies star leave people gasping for breath with his extraordinary exploits on the field.

It just doesn’t matter whether he has a bat in his hand, bowl or his hand or has neither of them, the 34-year rarely disappoints.

Well, on Tuesday, he took an absolute stunner off his bowling to send back Yusuf Pathan in the ongoing first Qualifier at the Wankhede Stadium. On the last ball of the fifteenth over, he dismissed the hard-hitting batsman to pile more misery on the Sunrisers.

The right-arm pacer bowled a fuller delivery, inviting Pathan to go for the big shot. Pathan duly obliged, as he went for the big heave. Such was Pathan’s desperation to hit a big shot he did not even bother to keep the shot grounded and paid a hefty price for it.

He struck it hard and low towards Bravo, but the ball still looked primed to evade the bowler. However, Bravo, despite having very little time to react, went down with both hands and completed an absolute stunner.

Here is a clip of that catch:

Meanwhile, Pathan’s wicket has put the Sunrisers in further trouble. Pathan was the sixth Sunrisers wicket to fall with just 88 runs on the board. He departed after scoring 24.

An avid cricket lover, I just love this game more than anything. Writing about cricket keeps me closer to the game.
