The Caribbean Premier League 2021 season continues to produce magical moments every other day. Chris Gayle has already smashed a window glass with his explosiveness while Andre Russell smashed Wahab Riaz all over the park with his raw power. Dwayne Bravo produced a moment of sportsmanship after he had an opportunity to mankad Mohammad Hafeez but decided against doing so, which was followed by both the cricketers sharing a hearty laugh.
However, fans got to see something really outrageous in match no. 7 between Trinbago Knight Riders and Saint Lucia Kings on Sunday. Rahkeem Cornwall and Andre Fletcher came out to open the innings and it was a rather cautious start from the duo in first two overs. This is when Cornwall decided to break free as he scored a few boundaries and the score read 30/0 in 4 overs.
Fletcher joins the party with some swagger
Andre Fletcher was batting at 10* off 14 deliveries and it was his time now to make use of the last two power-play overs. Isuru Udana was handed the ball and Fletcher could manage to score only two runs off the first three deliveries. The pressure was mounting on the right-handed batsman as he smashed the next delivery towards mid-wicket boundary. It looked like that the ball would go straight into the hands of fielder but it eventually went for a six.
The shackles had probably been broken and Fletcher was set to let loose. On the next delivery, the right-handed batsman did something which left everyone in awe of him. Udana pitched the next ball towards Fletcher's pads and it looked like the 33-year-old was waiting for it. Fletcher smoked it over the midwicket boundary with an audacious no-look shot. There was indeed some style and swagger about the shot with Fletcher keeping his eyes down while the ball flew for a huge six.
