CPL: Brathwaite's All-Round Brilliance Downs TKR in Super Over


Trinbago Knight Riders 216/4 in 20 overs (Lendl Simmons 90; Carlos Brathwaite 2-48) tied with St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots 216/7 in 20 overs (Carlos Brathwaite 64, Evin Lewis 45; Anderson Phillip 3-38). St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots won the Super Over

Super Over St Kitts and Nevis Patriots 18 for no loss (Brathwaite 17*) beat Trinbago Knight Riders 5 for 1 (Brathwaite 1-5) by 13 runs

Carlos Brathwaite played an innings to remember, arresting a middle-overs collapse with hitting of the highest caliber to keep St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the hunt chasing 217, before delivering the knockout punch with both bat and ball in the Super Over after the game was tied - only the second such occurrence in CPL history.

If his 30-ball 64 wasn't enough of a contribution, he took it upon himself to snap Trinbago Knight Riders's winning streak, smashing Ali Khan for two sixes and a four to set them 19, before conceding just five with the ball.

Incidentally, that was exactly what the Patriots needed to win -19 - when Jimmy Neesham was taken for 18 by Rayad Emrit and Alzarri Joseph to tie the game.

A total of 36 fours and 24 sixes were hit, and Knight Riders' Lendl Simmons was a heavy contributor to that tally in his 45-ball 90 - his third successive fifty - during the course of which he overtook Chris Gayle to lead the run charts this season.

But it proved insufficient as the Patriots clinched the thriller in Basseterre.
