All-round Dwayne Bravo is one of the most powerful hitters in world cricket. His batting prowess was once again on display during Texas Super Kings’ match against Washington Freedom in Major League Cricket 2023 on Monday, July 17 at Dallas. He smashed Anrich Nortje for a monstrous six during the match.
The incident took place during the eighteenth over of the second innings. The Texas Super Kings’ needed 56 runs off the final three overs to win the game. On the second delivery of the over, Anrich Nortje bowled a shortish delivery to Dwayne Bravo. The mighty all-rounder was expecting the short ball and backed away to make room. He pulled it with disdain for a 106m long six. Bravo also slammed a couple of boundaries towards the end of the over to score 17 runs off the over.
