St Kitts and Nevis Patriots



Overs: 20.0 / 20.0

Barbados Tridents

What a game, what a chase. First the Patriots cruised, then they lost their way, then recovered, then looked like they will be choked. In the end, they've finished this off in a blaze of glory. The man of the match? Fabien Allen, who finishes 65 not out off 34 balls. The most anyone's chased down in an over in the CPL is 17. Drakes, the young man on debut, was under pressure even though he was defending 17, but he'll learn from this experience. Great show of spirit from Jason Holder in walking up to Allen and embracing him in a hug. Defeats like these can be a bitter pill to swallow. This is now the sixth straight loss for Barbados Tridents.

Fabian Allen is the Player of the Match. He's clearly a man of few words. "Just stuck to my plans, believed in myself," he says, making it look ridiculously easy. "Best innings I've played so far."

19.4DC Drakes to FA Allen, LEG BYES, 1 run, swings, misses, the ball rolls off the pad into the leg side and they scamper a leg bye. This is the first time Patriots have chased down 150 plus in the CPL. .

Now he'll bowl from around the stumps

19.3DC Drakes to FA Allen, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, wallops this full toss over midwicket. One bounce to the boundary, that makes it scores level. He celebrated prematurely thinking that was going all the way. Drakes miscalculated again, going for a yorker. Oh, gosh. Spare a thought for the young man.
19.2DC Drakes to FA Allen, BOUNDARY, 6 runs, where has he walloped this? Out of the ground! This time, Drakes went full. It was almost as if the batsman knew what was coming. Just made a hint of room and then teed off like a golfer. Straight hit, super hit. One strike away from victory..
19.1DC Drakes to FA Allen, BOUNDARY, 6 runs, flat-batted over the bowler's head, smashed just wide of the sightscreen to bring up his half-century. Too short, he had enough time and power to make room and belt this..

8.05pm So it was a very short delay. The covers are off, stumps back on. No overs lost and the spectators are happy. Great news for everyone. I thought I could slip out to make myself a cup of coffee, but looks like that has to wait for a bit. No worries. I'll trade it for green tea instead.

7.53pm The bad news is it is raining, the good news is there is a lot of breeze, seemingly evident by how hard it was for the groundstaff to gather the covers and pull them in. Let's hope the clouds blow over soon and play resumes. This has all the makings of an interesting run chase on a sluggish pitch.

The umpires are hanging on, to see if the intensity of the rain reduces.
