Kevin Sinclair does somersault celebration: West Indies Emerging Team’s all-rounder was elated after dismissing the opposition’s opener.
During the final match of West Indies’ domestic ODI competition Super50 Cup between Leeward Islands and West Indies Emerging Team in Port of Spain, West Indies Emerging Team all-rounder Kevin Sinclair was elated after dismissing Leeward Islands opening batsman Kieran Powell.
It all happened on the penultimate delivery of the eighth over when Powell edged a delivery from the off-spinner to wicket-keeper Joshua Da Silva. Been asked to open the bowling alongside pacer Keon Harding, Sinclair dismissing the senior batsman was a huge blow for the opposition.
Sinclair, whose celebratory run eventually transformed into a somersault, ended up registering one of the best cricketing celebrations of all time. The video has been doing the rounds since yesterday across social media platforms.
Opening the batting with Montcin Hodge (1), Powell ended up scoring 13 (27) as Leeward Islands lost their second wicket in a 294-run chase. Sinclair’s bowling figures of 5.5-1-20-4 played a vital role in bundling out Leeward Islands for 88 in 26.5 overs. Other than Sinclair, Leeward Islands captain Yannic Cariah also picked three wickets.
Earlier, Leewards Islands captain Jahmar Hamilton had won the toss and put the opposition in to bat. West Indies Emerging Team posted 293/7 in 50 overs on the back of opening batman Leonardo Julien’s maiden List A half-century. Before getting out to Sheeno Berridge in the 32nd over, Julien scored 83 (85) with the help of 11 fours and two sixes.
