Carlos Brathwaite picked up two wickets for thirteen runs from his ten balls as the Manchester Originals bowled out Birmingham Phoenix for 87.

Since his positive contribution to the Sixers in the 2017/18 Big Bash League, Brathwaite has struggled to make the mark on global T20 cricket that his famous finish in the 2016 World Cup promised.

A key area for the all-rounder to improve is his impact with the ball as well as the bat, and his bowling performance for the Originals will give him great confidence. He even brought out the sort of trademark celebration that franchise cricket seems to demand on a modern bowler's CV.
