Saint Kitts and Nevis Patriots contemplate their fifth win
SKN vs BAR CPL 2021: Sheldon Cottrell & Dominic Drakes seal last ball thriller, Patriots beat Royals to 5 out of 5 Table champions St Kitts and Nevis Patriots continued their winning streak in the current CPL season as they clinched a thrilling last ball victory over the Barbados Royals on Friday. Needing four to win the final delivery, Sheldon Cottrell smashed a mammoth six to seal a two-wicket victory despite the Patriots being late in the game.
Batted, the Barbados Royals got off to a good start with Johnson Charles holding the fort following Shai Hope’s early sacking. Smit Patel, who was making his CPL debut, walked in and immediately looked home as he led the Royals’ innings. As the wickets continued to tumble on the other end, Smit continued to race and eventually scored half a century to lead Barbados to 160/8.
In response, the Patriots got into a fight, with Devon Thomas and Chris Gayle failing to budge after a calm start. Their middle order quickly collapsed in search of quick runs, but Dominic Drakes kept them in the chase with opportune limits in the final overs. Sheldon Cottrell was also involved and hit the last ball for six to ensure the Patriots remain unbeaten with five wins in five games.
Saint Kitts and Nevis Patriots 163/8 (20 vo.)
Barbados Royals 160/8 (20ov)
So can the Saint Kitts and Nevis Patriots continue their winning streak and record the fifth trotting victory? The Barbados Royals, on the other hand, languish in second place with a lone victory in four outings. They will enter this game after a six-wicket loss to Jamaica Tallawahs and would be eager to gain momentum in the tournament.
