Patriots Get Back on Track: Jamaica Tallawahs took on St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the 17th match of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2022. The Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain in Trinidad hosted this encounter where the Patriots grabbed their second win of the competition.

Dwayne Bravo, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots skipper won the toss and opted to bowl first. Jamaica Tallawahs skipper Brandon King and Kennar Lewis gave their side a stunning start. They put 49 between them before Lewis was dismissed on 24. King also departed in the eighth over on 22. They lost two more wickets in the middle phase.

Raymon Reifer, walking in at five, played a fantastic cameo of 40* off just 26 balls to help his side post 139 on the board. Fabian Allen also looked good for his 23. The Patriots bowled well in the second phase of the innings and pulled back things to restrict the Tallawahs to a low total.

In the break, rain arrived and the second innings was reduced to 15 overs. The revised target for the Patriots was reduced to 113. The Patriots had a wonderful start to the chase, thanks to their openers in Ander Fletcher and Evin Lewis. Both played aggressively from the start and put 49 at the end of the powerplay before the southpaw fell on 20. Darren Bravo joined Fletcher and kept the scoreboard moving.

Fletcher and Bravo put a solid stand for the second wicket. Bravo departed on 39 but not before taking his side closer to the target. Fletcher remained unbeaten on 45 to guide his side across the line in the 13th over. The Tallawahs tried hard but were unsuccessful in defending the total.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots grab their second win of the CPL 2022

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots didn’t have the best of starts to this year’s competition. They lost their first two games and their next two fixtures were washed out due to rain. They beat the Warriors but lost to the Kings in their next fixture. The defending champions have got back to winning ways after completing a convincing win over the Tallawahs in their seventh game. They will hope to repeat their performance in their next game.

Jamaica Tallawahs, on the other hand, have now lost three games out of six. They did win three games out of the first four but have lost their next games. They have six points to their name and are placed at the second position in the points table. The Tallawahs will take on the table-toppers Royals in their next fixture and will hope to grab two points on Thursday.

I’m just trying my best to keep it simple and do the best for the team. When I came in to bowl, they had got a good start, so I knew I had to keep things tight. The more you try to keep it simple, the better the results.

– Rashid Khan

Good to get the two points after not the best starts. Credit to my bowlers to restrict JT to below 140. Darren just has to spend time in the middle, there is no pressure from me or the management.

– Dwayne Bravo, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots
