On Friday, India played its first Innings of the second Test match against West Indies and managed 264 runs. In this match, Rahkeem Cornwall, West Indies allrounder nicknamed as Cricket’s Man Mountain, made his Test debut. With 140 kg weight, he has become the World’s heaviest cricketer. He has consistently played in domestic levels.
Rahkeem Cornwall didn’t disappoint his team in Test Debut. He picked up a beautiful catch of KL Rahul. With his bowling, the off-spinner took the wicket of Cheteshwar Pujara and India was at 46/2. He bowled eight maiden overs.
Mayank Agarwal and Virat Kohli both scored the fifties. But Holder was only the bowler who understood the field and took three wickets including Virat Kohli. The young players Rishabh Pant and Hanuma Vihari added the score of 60 with their partnership. West Indies reduced India by half and the day ended with a score of 264-5.
Cornwall on Cheteshwar Pujara’s wicket
When Rahkeem Cornwall was asked about his performance in Test Debut, he admitted that he was happy after taking Pujara’s Wicket.
“It was a good feeling of making my debut. I think the ball comes on really nice in the start. I have to work hard and put the ball into right areas,” Cornwall said.
“Good feeling to get him as (Pujara) my first Test wicket. It was nothing really new to me but it was a good feeling,” he added.
“We think pitch had a lot of moisture so we think once we get the first chance to bowl, we can get the early wickets. So, the toss goes in our favour. It was a good day on the first day of Test cricket,” Cornwall concluded.
