Carlos Brathwaite nearly pulled off a World Cup heist to remember with a stunning maiden ODI hundred.
Tough to know how this guy @TridentSportsX must feel right now. Mixed feelings he said. What a great effort by him to almost clinch one of the great comebacks. Well played Carlos. pic.twitter.com/HbeZx6OkoI— ian bishop (@irbishi) June 22, 2019

The finish was made even more memorable with Ian Bishop calling it on the live broadcast, bringing back memories of 'Carlos Brathwaite! Remember The Name.' from the 2016 World T20 final.
Wow! Remember the name! Not quite crossing the line but an unbelievable innings from Carlos Brathwaite #WIvNZ— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) June 22, 2019

Man! I loved Ian Bishop's commentary when Carlos Brathwaite was batting. His voice takes the thrill to a different level. #WIvNZ— Mazher Arshad (@MazherArshad) June 22, 2019

WI, we all love how you play. Carlos- one of my favourite modern day cricketers. Humble, respectful- a fine player.
Hopefully, there are better days and weeks coming up at the World Cup.
