Carlos Brathwaite

An allrounder still probably haunting the nightmares of Ben Stokes after hitting him for four sixes in the final over of the World T20 in 2016. Has struggled to replicate the same form in ODI cricket however


Born: July 18, 1988

Role: Right-hand bat, right-arm fast-medium

A man who will forever be remembered for his tournament winning four successive sixes in the 2016 World T20 final at Ben Stokes’ expense, Carlos Brathwaite is another West Indian cricketer in a long line of hard-hitting lower order seam bowlers.

Figures of 7-90 in his first-class debut against Trinidad and Tobago began an excellent debut season where he took 26 wickets at an average of 19.46 and smashed two half-centuries for Combined Campuses and Colleges.

These early displays earned him ODI and T20I debuts against Bangladesh in October 2011, but he was unable to back them up on the international stage and did not play another game until 2015.

Back in the West Indies setup, Brathwaite earned a big money $620,000 IPL deal for the 2016 season from Delhi Daredevils and just two months later showed exactly why they shelled out that much money for him with his World T20 heroics.
