After a 3-1 loss to England in the Test series, the West Indies are set to lock horns with the Englishmen in the solitary T20 game of the tour Chester-le-Street on Saturday. West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite has made his intentions clear ahead of the clash and he means business. The big guy is determined to prove that his T20 World Cup destruction against England was not a one-day wonder and he has the capability to do so once again.

The rampant knock by Carlos Brathwaite in the World T20 final in 2016 is still fresh on the minds of the English cricketers. England was the firm favorites to clinch the trophy until the last over when Carlos Brathwaite decided to bring down the roof by hitting four consecutive sixes off all-rounder Ben Stokes. The absolute carnage from Brathwaite led the West Indies to an emphatic victory over the Three Lions to lift the trophy.

What Brathwaite had to say:

However, the 29-year-old does not want to stop there. He now aims at consistency and more international success in the maroon colors of the West Indies. It’s something I can’t get away from… they even have us playing at his (Stokes’s) home ground,” said Brathwaite on Friday.

“Social media won’t let me forget it, there’s been a few videos going around of late. It wasn’t just a boundary or a six, it was four in a row. It was on the stage it was, it was against England and in India.” he added.

“I probably still can’t believe it happened but thankfully we have a T20 World Cup and I have a fantastic story to tell my kids, with the video footage to prove I’m not telling a lie.” Brathwaite added.

“I just want to move on in my career. It was a fantastic achievement and I’m privileged I was the one to make it possible but your career goes on long after that.” concluded the left-handed batsman.
