Carlos Ricardo Brathwaite (born 18 July 1988), commonly as Carlos Brathwaite, is a West Indian cricketer from Barbados. Brathwaite made his Twenty20 International (T20I) debut for the West Indies against Bangladesh on 11 October 2011 and is the current captain of the T20I side. He made his One Day International debut seven days later in the same series. During the West Indies tour of Sri Lanka in 2015, he scored 113 from 58 balls against Sri Lanka Board President's XI and shared a 193-run partnership for the eighth wicket with Andre Russell at Colts Cricket Club Ground, Colombo, to help his side recover from 7 for 109 to 318 in a 50-over game.
Needing 19 to win in the last over against England, Brathwaite scored four consecutive sixes in the first four balls of the last over in the final of 2016 ICC World Twenty20 to enable the West Indies to win their second World Twenty20 title. This was his debut World Cup. He was the first player for the West Indies to score four consecutive sixes in a T20I match.
He also spent a number of years playing domestic cricket in Ireland, with Dublin-based Leinster Cricket Club, with whom in 2009 he won the Bob Kerr Irish Senior Cup, defeating Donemena CC in the final.
