A Funny Run Out Like No Other! Video Of Rahkeem Cornwall's Dismissal Is Viral
Rahkeem Cornwall, labelled the 'heaviest' player in professional cricket, is a man who commands the attention of fans anytime he steps onto the pitch.
The West Indies all-rounder was playing for the Barbados Royals in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2023 and found himself rather short of the crease as he looked to take a hazardous single on the opening ball of the innings.
Cornwall knew his side needed to score early runs while chasing a target of over 200 runs, but the big fella wasn't quick between the wickets at the start of the chase.
Cornwall, an all-rounder for the West Indies national cricket team, is frequently the target of fan discussion due to his weight.
Many cricket analysts, previous stars, and professionals have counselled Rahkeem on how to properly control his weight. Despite boasts of 'eating right,' the all-rounder appears to be struggling at this phase of his career.
"I can't change my physical structure." I don't think I'm too tall or too huge. Nobody is going to be short and no one is going to be skinny. All I can do is go out there, support myself, and demonstrate my ability.
"There's no denying it." I'm a huge person, yet I have to work. I don't get too bogged down or sluggish with it. I devote a lot of attention to my fitness. "Try to eat properly," he stated in an Crichistory.com conversation.
In the match between the Saint Lucia Kings and the Barbados Royals, Cornwall's squad only managed 147 runs while chasing a 202-run mark.
Cornwall, who has bowled some magnificent stints for the West Indies in Test cricket, did not bowl in the game and also did not bat.
