The Patriots registered the second-highest successful chase in T20 cricket, attaining Jamaican Tallawahs’ 242-run target with 7 balls to spare. This was their second victory in three matches this season. On the other hand, the Tridents lost the only match they have played thus far.
Going by the recent momentum and head-to-head contests, the Patriots have the clear edge.
Players to watch out for
Needing 12 RPO, the Patriots were lucky that they had Evin Lewis at their disposal. He laid the foundation for a famous victory, blasting 53 off 18. His aggression rubbed off on Devon Thomas and together they added 85 in a mere 5.3 overs. Thomas eventually scored 71 off 40.
Fabian Allen was spectacular with both bat and ball. On a pitch that saw bowlers being crushed, he ended with figures of 2 for 30. With the bat, he went all guns blazing and remained unbeaten on 37 off 15.
Ashely Nurse was the only decent performer in Tridents’ first match, scoring a vital 40 down the order. The likes of Jason Holder and JP Duminy failed to provide any impetus.
