Man mountain returns with monster centuries

The 140kg cult hero Rahkeem Cornwall has been at it again in the West Indies' domestic one-day competition, blasting two centuries in his first three matches.

Cornwall, 25, stands 200cm tall and bats in the middle order for Leeward Islands, while he's also successful with some right-arm offbreaks.

He made a name for himself when he tonked England for 59 runs in a warm-up match in January last year.

In the first game of the comp 10 days ago, Cornwall came in at No.5 and whacked 132 not out off just 94 balls to lift his side to 8-298 against the USA.

Then he ripped through their opponents with 3-27 -- including a caught and bowled -- off his allotted 10 overs in a 162-run win.

Cornwall contributed just 22 runs and went wicketless in their next win over Jamaica, but he was back with a bang against Guyana.

The big man upstaged his representative teammates Kieran Powell and Marlon Samuels to hit four boundaries and 10 -- yep, ten! -- sixes in a knock of 119 off 96 balls.

Unfortunately for Cornwall, nobody really followed him.

Two batsmen scored in the 40s but nobody else even got to 15 runs.

Still, that's not going to stop us from enjoying his innings -- catch some of the highlights in the video player at the top of the page.
