I was treated like Gayle in India after World T20 2016 victory: Brathwaite
NEW DELHI: All Terrain Carlos Brathwaite , best remembered for hitting four consecutive sixes against England Ben stokes To help the West Indies win the 2016 T20 World Cup, on Sunday he said that his best memory in India will always be the flattery he received days after accomplishing the feat, where he felt that Chris Gayle in the subcontinent
" Cricket It is religion in India. I remember I was filming Chris (Gayle) being bullied at the airport. But after the World Cup when I came to play Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals), the same thing was happening to me, the 31-year-old said while chatting on a Delhi-NCR-based pet channel on Instragram, where he was mostly talking about his dog.
The West Indies were chasing a target of 156 and dropped to 1/3 in the third. Marlon Samuels and Dwayne Bravo then resurrected the innings before the former led the counterattack in the last four overs. However, he was running out of partners at the other end until Brathwaite entered at no. 8)
Brathwaite was on strike in the last on having made 10 of six balls. The West Indies needed 19 runs to win and the priority in any normal situation would have been to put Samuels on strike as soon as possible. But Brathwaite had other ideas.
Stokes threw the last shot and his first ball was thrown onto a square leg back. The second was a long time for his second six and the third was for another six races longer. Suddenly, the West Indies needed just one run to win and Brathwaite finished it with another six over midfield as the Windies players ran onto the field with joy.
Brathwaite also said that while Bengaluru is his favorite city for partying in India, Kolkata will always be special and he and his wife also like Mumbai. Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal commented below the chat, saying that all Bengaluru is hers. Chahal plays for Virat Kohli led by Royals Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League ( IPL ).
I played for Delhi Daredevils for two years ... the pollution just gets me. When I was there they had odd and even (car numbers) rules too.
A dog lover, Brathwaite said he talks about dogs to Indian middle order hitter Shreyas Iyer, among others, as he also owns a dog.
Chris Jordan and Jofra (Archer) have been asking me to see my dog. Kemar Roach has some dogs. Shreyas Iyer is also with her dogs. So there are few cricketers with dogs and we talk about them.
Brathwaite was not picked during the 2020 IPL auctions held late last year.
Hopefully I will be in the IPL in some capacity, maybe replacement player or in commentary, I added.
