The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021 has already kicked off and with just five matches so far, fans have already witnessed some thrillers and power-hitting skills of various batsmen.
The fifth match of the CPL 2021 is currently taking place between Guyana Amazon Warriors and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots at Warner Park, Basseterre, St Kitts and ‘ Champion’ Dwayne Bravo showed great sportsmanship to steal the limelight of the show.
Dwayne Bravo shows great sportsmanship and does not Mankad Mohammed Hafeez
Opting to bat first, Nicholas Pooran-led side posted a decent total of 146 runs on the board with Chandrapaul Hemraj and Mohammad Hafeez top-scoring with 39 and 38* respectively.
During the course of Guyana’s innings, Dwayne Bravo, who was bowling, won the heart of every cricket fan as he despite having a chance to Mankad well-set Mohammad Hafeez, who was unbeaten at 28 runs, did not opt for such kind of dismissal and showed great sportsmanship.
It was during the last over of the innings, when Dwayne Bravo stopped in the middle of his bowling action after he found Hafeez out his crease. He instead of mankading the right-handed batsman was seen having a light moment with him and hugging him.

Chasing the target of 147 runs, openers Devin Thomas and Even Lewis took their team off the flyer. While Thomas struggled to get going at first, Lewis on the other hand is at his hitting best and is batting at the strike rate of 142. After the end of the 10 overs, the Dwayne Bravo-led side is 72 for no-loss with both the batsmen looking in a hurry to chase the target.
