Dwayne Bravo, a versatile Northern Superchargers player, took 600 wickets, making him the first player in T20 cricket history. On August 11, while facing the Oval Invincibles at Men’s Hundred 2022, he pulled off the historic feat.
Bravo had 598 wickets in the game’s shortest format before the game against Oval. Against the Oval Invincibles, he played all 20 overs allocated to him and finished with 2/29 stats.
Sam Curran became Bravo’s 600th wicket in T20 matches, and Rilee Rossouw netted his 599th. Rossouw was caught by Bravo in front of his stumps while Curran was sent off by the seasoned Caribbean bouncer.
Bravo cast a powerful spell, but the Northern Super Chargers couldn’t defeat the Oval Invincibles today. Sam Curran’s 60 balls from 39 gave Oval a three-wicket win.
The Oval Invincibles won the toss and decided to play first earlier in the day. The Northern Superchargers finished with 157 runs scored in their 100-ball run thanks to a 33-ball 79 from an opener. For the Invincibles, Sunil Narine cast an outstanding 3/11 spell.
Sam Curran’s heroism eclipsed Dwayne Bravo’s major achievement:
The 67-run partnership of Sam Curran and Jordan Cox helped Oval, who were chasing 158 for the win, come back into the game after falling to 21/3. Curran took the attack position and scored 60 points on just 39 shots. He hit two fours and five sixes in his shot.
Tom Curran’s exceptional seven-ball 18* kept Northern Superchargers from winning despite their quick succession of three wickets in the closings. Sam’s game winner earned him Man of the Match.
