Brathwaite playing in T20 Blast turned out to be Corona positive
Corona (Covid 19) is tightening its grip on the ongoing T20 Blast in England. This time he has targeted West Indies cricketer Carlos Brathwaite. Carlos is currently playing T20 Blast in England, where he is part of Warwickshire’s team. This 32-year-old Caribbean all-rounder is the leading wicket-taker of his team in the tournament. Brathwaite has taken 18 wickets in 9 matches played so far this season at an average of 13.33 and economy of 7.53. Not only this, Brathwaite was made man of the match in the match played against Yorkshire on 30 June. In that match, he took 3 wickets for 7 runs in 2 overs.
Man of the match Brathwaite took the wickets of Adam Leith, Mark Stoneman and Gary Balance of Yorkshire. Brathwaite did not play in Warwickshire’s previous match and was well missed by the team against Nottinghamshire then. And, now Corona has increased that crisis of Warwickshire by taking Braithwaite in its grip.
Carlos Brathwaite has tested positive for Covid so he’s out of the Bears team.
