140kg cult hero’s ‘embarrasing’ blunder
Forgetting to do something, Rahkeem?Source:FOX SPORTS
When it comes to excitement machine Rahkeem Cornwall, you might just have to take the bad with the good.
The 140 kilogram all-rounder has treated crowds in the Caribbean Premier League to some breathtaking power-hitting at the top of the order this year.
But running between the wickets isn’t his specialty, as his team St Lucia Zouks were painfully reminded of on Thursday.

Cornwall once again opened the batting for the Zouks in its CPL match against Guyana Amazon Warriors at Gros Islet.
Forced to run a couple of singles, he refused to slide his bat as he ambled between the wickets.
But he tried his luck one too many times when he was on six.
His bails were whipped off at the striker’s end, with an appeal barely going up from the Warriors. Nonetheless, it was sent upstairs and replays showed Cornwall didn’t ground anything behind the crease at the moment the stumps were broken.
“That is embarrassing. It really is embarrassing for Rahkeem Cornwall,” one of the commentators said.
“Unforgivable. Unforgivable and you’re a professional,” said another.
