BASSETERRE – Captain Carlos Brathwaite emerged from a slump to slam a half-century, before dominating the decisive “super-over” with bat and ball, to power St Kitts and Nevis Patriots to a dramatic victory over two-time reigning champions Trinbago Knight Riders here Tuesday night.

Faced with a daunting target of 217 under lights at Warner Park, Patriots produced an exhilarating run chase led by Brathwaite’s 64 off 30 balls – his maiden Caribbean Premier League 50 – to set up the ultimate nerve-jangling finish.

Needing five runs for victory off the final delivery of the regulation overs, all-rounder Rayad Emit (21 not out) edged a low Jimmy Neesham full toss to the third man boundary to leave the scores level.

Barbadian Brathwaite then took responsibility for facing the “super-over” from fast bowler Ali Khan, blasting a couple of sixes and a four, to leave TKR with 19 to win. (CMC)
