Rahkeem Cornwall, probably the biggest unit in world cricket, was in top form during the Caribbean Premier League match between the Barbados Tridents and the St Lucia Stars, smoking sixes at will. Cornwall, who is six-foot-five-inches tall and weighs 143 kgs, scored 78* from 44 balls after opening the innings for the Stars. The all-rounder hit six sixes and seven boundaries during his impressive knock, also his maiden fifty. Unfortunately for the Stars, Cornwall could not take the team past the finish line after retiring hurt because he found it hard to run between the wickets

Before walking off the field, Cornwall was struck in the midsection by a delivery from Kieron Pollard. The batsman decided he could no longer continue after facing just one ball in the 18th over. Unimpressed by his decision to exit, Pollard gave Cornwall quite a send-off. From there on, things went downhill for the Stars, who lost the match by 29 runs.

Earlier, West Indies international Dwayne Smith scored a century to power Barbados Tridents to 195/4. Cornwall contributed with the ball too, picking up two wickets during the Tridents' innings.
