David and Goliath: Warner in brutal partnership with 140kg beast

David Warner has found his form in the Caribbean Premier League, putting on a batting masterclass with his beastly teammate.

Rahkeem Cornwall is a two-metre, 140kg all-rounder who immediately struck up a crucial partnership with the Aussie.

The 25-year-old didn’t take long to get going either, smacking a six from just the third ball he faced.

“The power of Rahkeem Cornwall, making a big impact for the stars,” said the commentators.

“Cornwall was sent there to do a job.”

Cornwall went on to hit five 6s in total with two 4s, rounding out a scintillating batting display for the St Lucia Stars.

He joined Warner at the crease in the fifth over following the dismissal of St Lucia opener Andre Fletcher.

Warner performed well with bat-in-hand too, seeing out the innings with a 72 not out total.

“Now there’s some for David Warner,” said Michael Slater.

“The game is not so bad now.”

Cornwall eventually walked for 53 after being caught from an edge outside off, dismissed by Jason Searles.

The Stars were up against Chris Lynn’s Trinibago Knight Riders, and set a tough total of 212/2 for the opposition to match.

Despite the heroics of Cornwall and Warner, the Knight Riders posted an incredible total of 281/5 after scoring 85 runs from the remaining five overs to win the match.
