Make that six losses in a row for the Barbados Tridents.

After five successive defeats on home soil at Kensington Oval, they went on the road last night but still could not break their losing streak.

This time, they went down to St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, who won by two wickets with two balls to spare at Warner Park.

Set 169 to win, the Patriots needed 17 from the last over bowled by debutant fast bowler Dominic Drakes, and Fabian Allen proceeded to smash the youngster for two sixes and a four in a match-winning unbeaten 64 off 34 balls. (HG)
