St Kitts and Nevis Patriots

9.35pm #Scenes at Providence as the Patriots charge out, arms spread out triumphantly. But the man who did it, Ben Cutting, stands there with a stone-faced expression. No fist pump, no jumps, no yells. That's as sedate a celebration as there's ever been! One can only imagine what Rovman Powell must be feeling right now. One harsh call and he lost it. But, while the wide was unfair, can't lay blame on that alone. You got to hold your nerve at this level. Under pressure, a cool head on your shoulders helps. When you allow nerves to get the better of you, that is what happens. Emotions overtook after the first wide, and three more followed. No way to repair that damage on most occasions, especially when margins are this tight. Also got to feel for Glenn Phillips. Played the innings of his life, but must be devastated that it couldn't pull the team through. But that's how fickle sport can be. T20, especially, is about clinching the crucial moments, and Patriots did that tonight.

"It was always going to be a pressure game.. nerve-wracking like last night. Now we move on to Trinidad," says Chris Gayle.

Simmo: "How on earth do you bowl 4 wides in the game deciding over... clearly couldn't take the pressure"

Craig: "Patriots would have needed 9 runs off two balls had the umpire not erred in the calling that fouth delivery a wide. That bad call messed up the bowler and cost JT the game. The umpiring has been a shame." Umpiring hasn't been good, agreed, but unfair to put that down to the one call alone.

Anton Devcich is Man of the Match for steering the chase. "Glenn Phillips played an outstanding knock. We wanted to just try and get them. The ball skids on in the night. Got to give Chris and credit.. they've scored a lot of runs at this level. Just believe in yourself. In the middle it's a little bit different but I know I can always catch up."

Phew! What a finish to the evening! The thrills and nerves of T20 cricket never cease to sweep you off your feet. This was close. Both teams were in it for the most part, and then a few moments of nerves cost one of them. Anyway, Patriots move on to the second Qualifier where they meet Trinbago Knight Riders. Join us then. This is all we have from here. Thanks, as always for your comments and company. Goodbye!

19.5R Powell to BCJ Cutting, BOUNDARY, 6 runs, Ben Cutting, you beauty! Seals it off with a mighty heave over deep midwicket. A harmless length ball that sits up nicely outside off.. say no more!.
19.5R Powell to BCJ Cutting, WIDE, 1 run, this is shoddy bowling.. another wide, angled down the leg side. No good.
19.4R Powell to BCJ Cutting, No run, that's much better. A yorker, pushed along the ground to long-on.. and they don't take the run.
19.4R Powell to BCJ Cutting, WIDE, 1 run, slips down the leg side.. oh dear! Rovman's lost it.
19.4R Powell to BCJ Cutting, WIDE, 1 run, no doubt about this one.. too far across.
19.4R Powell to BCJ Cutting, WIDE, 1 run, full, wide, left alone. Touch and go, called a wide, and Powell can't believe it. Very harsh call. That's definitely not a wide.
19.3R Powell to CR Brathwaite, OUT, No run, in the aiiir.. and Andre Russell.. this guy is impregnable! Another sensational catch. Full, wide and slow, dragged from outside off in the air and DreRuss puts in another dive from long-on to snaffle it above the ground. These are so hard to judge but he's making it look like doling out candies.
19.2R Powell to CR Brathwaite, BOUNDARY, 6 runs, low full toss on the pads, heaved over deep square leg. That's a gift.
19.1R Powell to CR Brathwaite, No run, full, wide, swings and misses.
