So that's goodbye from me, Anurag, and my partner Arjun Bhalla from the comm box. Do join us tomorrow for the fourth Test between England and India tomorrow, and the CPL fixtures in the evening, Goodnight and take care!!

Dwayne Bravo  "Very proud of them. Good for Windies cricket as you guys like Fabian and Lewis performing. We wanted to chase always. We wanted to keep our composure. A great team effort. A chase of 160 plus could have been tricky. Another good start from the openers. Fans play a big part in the Caribbean and great to have the fans back as well"
Rovman Powell  "We were 20 runs short. Credit to the Patriots as they bowled well in the last 5 overs. Our bowling unit also could have done better. I couldn't introduce James as Lewis in the middle was going great"
Sherfane Rutherford  "Coming into this tournament, I tell myself I have a responsibility and batting up the order was something that I always wanted. I went to the drawing board and tried to improve my game. The journey has been a good one coming into this game. Bravo is a special person. He asked me to play with a free mind. There is no pressure and the freedom I get from him is wonderful" 
Time for the post-match presentation. 

Sherfane Rutherford bags in the Man of the Match award for his blistering 50 off just 26 deliveries.

Reasonable finish for the Tallawahs despite the lack of wickets. Hard to tell who is out in front at the innings break. Both teams would feel satisfied with the end score there. Both teams would feel satisfied with the end score there. It's that kinda surface where there's enough assistance for everyone and the slower balls have proved to be very effective too. Things looked like heading to Jamaica, but DJ Bravo’s St Kitts and Nevis came back again. The Patriots picked up five wickets for 32 runs in the last five overs to stamp their authority over Powell’s men. A late flourish by Pretorius helped the Tallawahs reach 166 for 8. 


Bravo’s men started the chase on the right note with Lewis taking the charge against the quicks in the powerplay. The Patriots lost two wickets and ended the powerplay on 52/2 going on par with the required run rate with Evin Lewis looking unstoppable. Just like the Tallawahs, the scoring rate dropped down after the powerplay but Lewis kept throwing punches. Lewis eventually fell apart after some smart work by Rovman Powell and suddenly the game was in balance. Rutherford and Bopara tried to build a solid partnership but the Englishman struggled against the pacers. Fabian Allen came in and dealt some huge blows to the Tallawahs taking the game to the wire. He was well-supported by Rutherford who looked in a hurry and brought up a crucial fifty of just 26 balls, finishing the game 2 overs early.

And with that, we come to the conclusion of the 10th match of the 2021 CPL. St. Kitts and Patriots chase the competitive total quite comfortably with 6 wickets and 14 balls to spare. The destruction at the death by Fabian Allen and Sherfane Rutherford does the job for the Patriots and they make it four in four, cementing their spot at the top of the table.

17.4 F Edwards to F Allen
6 KNEELS DOWN AGAIN AND NAILS THE MATCH WINNING SIXER NOW. UP AND OVER DEEP EXTRA COVER. ALLEN ANNOUNCES HOW IT IS DONE!!!!! St Kitts & Nevis Patriots win by six wickets. Four wins out of four games. That was a fuller delivery outside off. Allens reads the line and length perfectly, puts on knee down and swings his arms with the line... times it with his muscle power over the sweeper, who just sees the ball sail over him. And then Allen posses for the camera.!!! Done and dusted!!
17.3 F Edwards to F Allen
0 Length ball outside off. Allen goes to smack but misses by a mile.
17.2 F Edwards to F Allen
0 High full toss straight into Allen who goes to pull and gets it on the belly. Allen seems moaning here.
17.1 F Edwards to F Allen
6 BOOOMMMMMM!!! Kneels down and dispatches a maximummm over long-on. Fuller delivery around off. The ball was there to it and Allen hits in style. Goes on one knee and hammers a classy hit over the man standing at long-on boundary!!!
17.1 F Edwards to F Allen
WD Wide ball. Half tracker that angles into Allen who misses the hook. Through him to the keeper. And Edwards have to reload it.

16.6 M Pretorius to S Rutherford
6 And again!!! SIX MORE!!!! That is humungous from Rutherford! Hefty blow and St Kitts seem to be in some hurry. Full and outside leg now. The batter just flicks it over fine leg for another six. This brings up his fifty off 26 balls.
16.5 M Pretorius to S Rutherford
6 WOOWWW!!!!! Now Rutherford connects. SIX!! Full outside-off. Sherfane, you beauty!!! He lofts it in front of square for a mammoth maximum.
16.4 M Pretorius to S Rutherford
2 Skied and dropped. Length ball on the stumps. Rutherford tries to nail another maximum but the ball takes the toe end. Goes miles in the air towards backward square leg. The fielder there tries to settle under the ball and drops while running behind. Couple taken.
16.3 M Pretorius to F Allen
1 Allen kneels down to a length ball that comes into him. Slog sweeps it to deep square leg for just a single. That was a paced off delivery.
16.2 M Pretorius to S Rutherford
1 Full on the leg stump. Rutherford goes to tickle it but runs it hard to fine leg. Runs across, single in the bank.
16.1 M Pretorius to S Rutherford
6 MAXIMUMMMM!!!! Rutherford joins the party. Hammers the maximummm!!! Biggest of the match. Out of the park. Out of the stadium. Out of the city. Fuller delivery into the slot for the batter who leans back and then comes forward. Uses the momentum and then throws the ball in the air towards deep square leg fence. #MAMMOTH!
Series So Far
