Faf Praise Bravo over his unbeaten 76 against Washington Freedom
As of many other domestic T20 leagues, MLC too start to get its hype as the tournament precedes. The international players who feature in Major League Cricket 2023, drags attention from all around the world by executing their extraordinary performances.
One such incident happened in MLC’s 5th league match. The match was scheduled to play between Texas Super Kings and Washington Freedom in Grand Prairie Stadium, Dallas.
The match grabs the attention when Super Kings were in need of 27 runs from the last six deliveries. In cricket, everything is possible that too with an internationally experienced batter like Bravo at the crease, chasing this target might look easier.
But in the end, it’s Anrich Nortje, no one needs to explain the strategies he use to do towards the end of the inning. Fans who were excited for the clash at the 20th over started to pray for their favourites.
Bravo who runs 2 runs off the first delivery struck a 92-meter six off the following delivery. With 17 needed off the last 3 balls, Nortje bowls a low full toss around the leg stump which Bravo failed to hit the maximum.
With a boundary and maximum of the final 2 deliveries, Super Kings fell 6 runs short and lost the thrilling final over game.
Though Super Kings lost the game, Bravo’s heroic knock receives grand praises from everyone. Even Texas Super Kings captain Faf praises Bravo for his impressive performance and opens up on the reason for this defeat.
“It was one of those wickets where it wasn’t easy to bat on. Matthew Short was one guy who made it look easy. It was brilliant to see DJ Bravo bringing out the calypso flavour and playing that way. We lost too many wickets in the powerplay, when you are chasing such a target you need to get off to a good start”, says Faf du Plessis.
TO THE MOON🌕!
Dwayne Bravo with the BIGGEST SIX of the tournament!
