Rahkeem Cornwall, who plays for St. Lucia Zouks in the ongoing CPL 2020, is definitely a big man. The 6’4” giant who weighs more than 300 pounds is deceptively nimble on his feet and has shown it time and again while fielding.
His quickness and athleticism were on display in the CPL semi-final match between Zouks and Guyana Amazon Warriors. In the 14th over of the Warriors inning, Zahir Khan Paktin induced an edge from Imran Tahir’s bat, which flew a bit far away from where Cornwall was standing in the first slip.
The giant threw himself forward and plucked the ball with one hand displaying amazing agility and movement. With Tahir’s dismissal, the Warriors were also bundled out on 55, which is the second-lowest total of CPL history.
Here is the video of Cornwall’s catch:
Cornwall then chipped in with the bat and scored an unbeaten 32 from 17 balls as Zouks won the contest comprehensively by 10 wickets, while he had the good fortune of scoring the winning runs for his team.
St. Lucia Zouks will now face off against the unbeaten Trinbago Knight Riders in the CPL 2020 final.
