West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo and the team as a whole had a night to remember as they went 2-0 in the five-match T20I series against Australia in Gros Islet. Dwayne Bravo, who produced the fireworks in the death overs, smashed three sixes during his 34-ball 47. The seam-bowling all-rounder’s one of those went over the roof.
The six occurred at the 13th over bowled by Ashton Agar, who delivered a short ball on the legs. Dwayne Bravo cashed on it the best he could, depositing it way back over deep square leg with one hand. As a result, the umpires had to call out for a replacement ball for the rest of the innings.
Below is the clip of Dwayne Bravo’s enormous six:

Dwayne Bravo first shared a stand of 103 from 61 deliveries with Shimron Hetmyer, followed by another whirlwind stand of 34 from 13 balls with Andre Russell to finish things off. As a result, the hosts raced to 196 in 20 overs. Shimron Hetmyer top-scored with 61 off 36 deliveries with two fours and four maximums.
In reply, Australia could not deal with the pressure as they fell in a heap for the second consecutive occasion. The visitors had Mitchell Marsh as their top performer again, scoring 54 off 42 deliveries. However, with the rest of the batters failing, Marsh could not keep up with the asking rate as it kept soaring. Hayden Walsh starred with figures of 4-0-29-3. Australia eventually fell 56 runs short and need to win the next three games to win the series.
