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.
