Dwayne Bravo sometimes does the seemingly impossible on a cricket field.
Yesterday, he nearly pulled off another piece of magical brilliance.
The dynamic West Indies all-rounder dived full stretch to his right in an attempt to take a catch at backward short-leg offered by Sri Lanka batsman Mahela Jayawardene against off-spinner Shane Shillingford.
Bravo got his hand to the ball, but was unable to hold on. It did not prove to be a costly miss and Jayawardene was dismissed shortly after for 59.
Sri Lanka, replying to West Indies’ 580 for nine declared, were all out for 378 and reached 89 without loss in their second innings at the end of the penultimate day. (AP Picture)
