There is a saying that don’t judge a book by its cover. People might be surprised to see this player’s weight, but his cricketing talent stuns the audience from time to time. In CPL 2022, an all-rounder created such a storm with his batting that the world was stunned. Yes, we are talking about West Indies’ 140 kg batsman Rahkeem Cornwell. Cornwell created havoc with the bat in the match played between Barbados Royals and Guyana Amazon Warriors on Tuesday under the CPL.
Opening for the Barbados Royals, he hit 91 runs in 54 balls with 2 fours and 11 sixes at a strike rate of over 168. The 29-year-old Rahkeem plundered the accolades in the corridors of cricket by hitting one-to-one with one of the best shots, the use of steps and lofty sixes.
He thrashed star bowlers Keemo Paul, Odeon Smith and Imran Tahir. This is the best performance of Rahkim’s T20 career till now.
