IPL 2020: 5 CPL stars the franchises should target
#4 Rahkeem Cornwall (St. Lucia Zouks)
The bulky all-rounder, who often makes news for his weight, showed again in CPL 2019 that he is a genuine talent, and that he deserves to be in the limelight for his on-field performances. In 10 matches, Rahkeem Cornwall scored 254 runs at an impressive strike rate of 190.97, with two fifties. He struck 25 fours and 20 sixes during the course of the tournament.
Cornwall’s best score of 75 came from only 30 balls in the 9th match of CPL 2019 against Jamaica Tallawahs. The sizzling innings featured as many as eight sixes.
In the 24th match of the tournament, again against the same opponent, Cornwall slammed 51 from 25 balls, this time with four fours and five sixes. He wasn’t as successful with the ball though, going wicket-less in most of the games.
In his 41-match T20 career, Cornwall has 594 runs to his name at a strike rate of 151.91 with four fifties. He has also claimed 22 wickets at a strike rate of 25, with a best of 3 for 10.Published 14 Oct 2019, 02:57 IST
