Carlos Ricardo Brathwaite (born 18 July 1988) is a former captain of the West Indies Twenty20 International (T20I) team.
West Indies Carlos Brathwaite made history by hitting four successive sixes in the final over of the 2016 World T20 final to end England’s hopes of a championship. In 2011, Brathwaite made his limited-overs debut for the West Indies, but it was his performance in the West Indies’ 2015-16 Test series in Australia that helped him land an IPL deal. West Indies’ second World T20 title came after he took 3 for 23 and clubbed 34 from 10 balls, proving that the Delhi Daredevils’ decision to sign him over more well-known players was a good one.
His first-class debut, against Trinidad & Tobago, featured a 7 for 90 hauls, and he followed it up with 26 wickets in eight games this season, showcasing his talent. In 2011, he made his ODI and T20I debuts on the Bangladesh tour, but he had to wait more than three years before he got another opportunity. The South African tour in January 2015 marked his return to limited-overs cricket, and his Test debut came in December 2015 when he toured Australia.
Despite the West Indies’ overall struggles, he performed admirably in his first two Tests. With a 59 in his debut at No. 8 on Boxing Day, he helped Darren Bravo stave off an early collapse in the first innings in Melbourne. A lively 69 off 71 balls in the rain-affected Sydney Test was his best score. Delhi Daredevils made a surprise bid of Rs 4.2 crore (US$620,000) for him during the IPL 2016 player auction, 14 times his base price of Rs 30 lakh. His dramatic rise was capped off by an emphatic victory over England when West Indies needed 19 runs from six balls
