Carlos Brathwaite almost pulled out another miracle, but this time he came agonizingly closed against the match against New Zealand on Saturday during a thriller World Cup match. Brathwaite hit 101, including 9 boundaries and 5 sixes, in just 81 balls, thereby bringing up his maiden World Cup 100.
Brathwaite took West Indies to within five runs of an astonishing triumph over New Zealand in a thrilling match but was caught by Trent Boult inches away from the boundary line, as he went for the six his side needed to win.
Following the defeat, Brathwaite was in absolute distraught and sunk to the ground at the middle of the pitch in disappointment. At this moment, captain Kane Williamson gave another reason to his fans to adore him as he showed amazing sportsman spirit who quickly walked up to Carlos Brathwaite and consoled the West Indies star who gave it his all at the field.
