Windies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite’s killer bouncer video has gone viral on the internet. In the video, Brathwaite bowled a massive bouncer to a batsman who tried to slog it for a big hit but missed it completely. There was clear daylight between bat and ball. The ball ended up hitting the batsman, who was not wearing a helmet. He collapsed on his crease in a few seconds.
Usually, the bowler walks up to the batsman when something like this happens. However, Brathwaite seemed as if he could not care less. The 29-year-old turned back and started walking towards the start of his run-up. The batsman is at fault for not wearing the essential protective gear, a helmet.
