West Indian Dwayne Bravo today faced a bit embarrassing dismissal in the ongoing Big Bash League. Bravo was batting against McKay and was cleaned up on a slower ball from the Aussie bowler. The Melbourne Renegades were facing the Sydney Thunders.
The Melbourne Renegades captained by Aussie opener Aaron Finch won the toss and decided to bat first. This was a good call from Finch. He himself went in to bat as the opener and he did hit some good number of runs with the bat. Finch gave the Renegades the ideal start. He slammed the ball hard on all parts of the ground. This momentum was picked up by Bravo in the middle part of the innings till the end. Bravo made 24 runs with the bat. He hit some good shots in his innings.
Eventually he was out to a brilliant slow ball from the leading bowler of Sydney Thunder. McKay bowls a lot of slow balls. This is his typical variation. Now he disguises them so well that despite being settle on the pitch we have seen batters facing problems on these balls. Bravo went for a big heave on the leg side. Now it seems that Bravo did read the line and length of the ball. But he did not pick up the pace on this one at all. He thought the ball would come with the average pace with which McKay was bowling in the game but he was wrong.
