Cape Town: West Indies opener Kraigg Brathwaite has earned a footnote in cricket history after he got off the mark with a seven in the third Test against South Africa at Newlands.
The batsmen ran three and gained four extra runs when wicketkeeper AB de Villiers shied at the stumps at the bowler's end and the ball went to the boundary on Sunday.
According to South African statistician Andrew Samson, this was the first occasion in Test history when a batsman's first runs were a seven.
Brathwaite was eventually dismissed for 16 as the West Indies closed the third day on 88-2 in their second innings, four runs behind the home team.
