Well, you must have heard Tony Grieg using the phrase “It’s raining sixes” many times during his commentary in international matches. On Saturday, New Zealand commentator Danny Morrison also got the opportunity to use the phrase courtesy West Indies’ Dwayne Bravo.
During a match between Trinbago Knight Riders and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots at Warner Park in the ongoing edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), Bravo showed the world why he is counted among the best when it comes to T20 cricket. The Trinbago skipper smashed five consecutive sixes in an over in the match which his team won by 46 runs.
The West Indies allrounder, who came to the crease in the 17th over, immediately went off the mark with a single before he ran for two more singles and a pull in the 18th over bowled by Ben Cutting.

In the next over, Bravo hit his West Indian teammate Alzarri Joseph for five maximums. After missing the first ball of the over, Bravo hit sixes in almost all parts of the ground, be it long on, long off, behind square leg, over third man and deep extra cover.
The cameo helped Bravo smash 37 runs off just 11 balls. With the win against St. Kitts, defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders continued to uphold their role in the three-horse race for the regular season CPL crown and rejoined Jamaica Tallawahs and Guyana Amazon Warriors at the top of the table.
