2nd game of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) took place on 17 August between St Lucia Kings (SLK) and Barbados Royals (BBR). SLK were looking for a win after losing their first game. However, SLK managed a 54-run win and registered their first victory this season. But, during the match, BBR’s Rahkeem Cornwall got involved in a funny runout dismissal as the video went viral.

Speaking of the dismissal, it took place on the first delivery of BBR’s innings. Cornwall was on strike and he nudged the ball to short fine. Sole fumbled to take the ball cleanly, making Cornwall think of snatching a quick single. But, Sole recovered it quickly and came up with a direct throw at the stumps at the non-striker’s end. Cornwall was not even in the picture and fans were left in shock with such a casual approach from the batter.
