T20 star Dwayne Bravo etched his name in history books as he became the first-ever bowler to claim 600 wickets in the shortest format. The right-armer accomplished the special landmark during his side Northern Superchargers’ match against the Oval Invincibles in the ongoing The Hundred competition on Thursday.
It all happened on the 89th ball of the Invincibles innings when Bravo bowled a spectacular off-cutter to clean up the English all-rounder Sam Curran, who was trying to go big by giving himself some room.
Soon after registering the incredible feat, Bravo celebrated in a unique fashion. He put on the dancing shoes and celebrated Curran’s dismissal. His overall figures were 2 for 29 in the 20 balls bowled.
