Warwickshire’s skipper Carlos Brathwaite’s action in the game against Derbyshire cost his team five penalty runs. On Sunday, Derbyshire and Warwickshire were up against each other in the T20 Blast 2022 group game at the Edgbaston. Notably, Derbyshire defeated Warwickshire comfortably by seven wickets in the end.
The incident took place during the 13th over of the 2nd innings, as Carlos Brathwaite was bowling to Wayne Madsen. On the 4th delivery of the over, the big all-rounder bowled a length-ball just outside the off-stump and Madsen defended it straight to the bowler.
However, trying to look for a run-out, the Warwickshire skipper released a powerful throw at the striker’s end stumps after collecting the ball in his follow-through. However, the ball hit Madsen, who didn’t get any time to dodge the bullet throw. He wasn’t pleased with Brathwaite at all and also complained to the umpire for the same.
Carlos Brathwaite apologized immediately after the throw
The Bears’ skipper apologized immediately to Wayne Madsen, but the on-field umpires penalized Warwickshire by five runs after having a discussion.
