#4 Bravo gets a taste of his own medicine
No mortal has played more T20 matches than Dwayne Bravo. The journeyman cricketer has travelled to almost every nook and corner of the globe with many a game-changing performance to his name. Aside from a propensity to create magic on the field and the readiness to flay his bat to great effect, the entertainer’s tour de force is built around his jaw-dropping variety of slower deliveries.
Walking into bat at Finch’s departure, he looked set to carry the Renegades’ momentum towards a 200-plus total. After taking a liking to Arjun Nair’s off-spin and Cummins’ pace, Bravo was done in by a slower one from Clint McKay. The attempt to throw the kitchen sink at it made him lose balance.
The bat flew out of his hands even as the ball smashed onto the stumps. For a change, the bowler in him might have understood the difficulty that often faces opposition batsmen.Published 22 Dec 2016, 18:05 IST
