Bravo Hits Glen For a Huge Six
Meanwhile, the final saw a funny moment in the 13th over of the TKR innings, when Zouks skipper Darren Sammy handed the ball to Javelle Glen.
The young leg spinner tried to disturb Darren Bravo’s concentration by doing a zig-zag action just when he was about to deliver his fifth ball. However, to the credit of Bravo, this didn’t deter his concentration and the left-hander smashed a huge six off Glen over square leg. You can watch the video below.
