St Kitts & Nevis Pa­tri­ots se­cured a sev­en-run win over the Trin­ba­go Knight Rid­ers to stay in con­tention for a 2022 Hero Caribbean Pre­mier League (CPL) play-off spot at the Prov­i­dence Sta­di­um in George­town, Guyana on Thurs­day.


St Kitts & Nevis Pa­tri­ots won the toss and chose to bat in this must-win game, but were re­strict­ed ear­ly on as the Knight Rid­ers ro­tat­ed five bowlers across the pow­er­play. Sher­fane Ruther­ford would change the com­plex­ion of the in­nings with a bril­liant 78 runs, aid­ed by a spec­tac­u­lar cameo from De­wald Bre­vis, to take the Pa­tri­ots to 163/6.

In their chase, the Trin­ba­go Knight Rid­ers strug­gled to build part­ner­ships as wick­ets con­sis­tent­ly fell. De­spite this, they re­mained with a chance of win­ning the match as Tim Seifert and An­dre Rus­sell scored cru­cial late runs, but it proved to be in vain as they could on­ly muster 156/7, los­ing by sev­en runs

St Kitts and Nevis Pa­tri­ots were frus­trat­ed by the bowl­ing of the Knight Rid­ers in the first ten overs, reach­ing 43/3 and hav­ing lost the key wick­et of Evin Lewis. Ruther­ford would then shoul­der the re­spon­si­bil­i­ty of car­ry­ing the in­nings as he pa­tient­ly scored runs be­fore ac­cel­er­at­ing in the last three overs, to fin­ish on 78 runs. Bre­vis would re­mark­ably score 30 runs from just six balls, con­stant­ly clear­ing the bound­ary to pro­pel the Pa­tri­ots to 163/6

Trin­ba­go Knight Rid­ers lost the ear­ly wick­ets of Leonar­do Julien and Col­in Munro in their chase, with spin­ners Kevin Sin­clair and Rashid Khan re­strict­ing runs. Kieron Pol­lard and Nicholas Pooran would then lose their wick­ets as the Knight Rid­ers found them­selves in se­ri­ous trou­ble. Seifert kept the chase alive with a valiant half-cen­tu­ry. De­spite Rus­sell scor­ing 18 runs in the 19th over, it was not to be enough as Shel­don Cot­trell de­liv­ered a com­posed fi­nal over to take the Pa­tri­ots to vic­to­ry by sev­en runs


PA­TRI­OTS 162 for six off 20 overs (Sher­fane Ruther­ford 78, De­wald Bre­vis 30 not out, Dar­ren Bra­vo 23; Daryn Du­pavil­lon 3-38) vs TKR 156 for sev­en off 20 overs (Tim Seifert 59, Kieron Pol­lard 31, An­dre Rus­sell 29; Shel­don Cot­trell 3-33, Kevin Sin­clair 2-18)
