Cottrell, spinners deliver humiliating defeat to Stars

Scorecard & ball-by-ball St Lucia Stars vs St Kitts & Nevis Patriots, 13th Match, St Lucia

St Lucia Stars crashed to a humiliating seven-wicket defeat to St Kitts & Nevis Patriots after collapsing to 69 all out inside 13 overs.

Teenaged all-rounder Qais Ahmad was the only man to offer serious resistance with a battling 24 as wickets tumbled all around him, with Sheldon Cottrell, Mahmudullah and Sandeep Lamichhane the chief destroyers for the Patriots.

Cottrell started and finished the demolition. Having been hit for six by Andre Fletcher from the first ball of the night, Cottrell had his revenge with a simple caught-and-bowled from the fourth. He wrapped the innings up just 71 balls later as Obed McCoy edged through to wicket-keeper Devon Thomas.

In between those two wickets, Cottrell also netted the big fish as the Stars captain Kieron Pollard failed to read a slower ball and only succeeded in poking it to cover.

When Australia superstar David Warner fell to the irrepressible Sandeep Lamichhane for 14 and Ben Cutting removed Daren Sammy there was no way back for the Stars.

So one-sided was the contest that the Patriots had the luxury of giving Chris Gayle the innings off to rest a thumb injury he suffered last time out against Jamaica Tallawahs.

Evin Lewis and Thomas opened the innings and, with pressure off and attacking fields, set about reducing the already meagre target.

It was a missed opportunity for Lewis to find some form with the pressure off.

Thomas was there at the end stroking the winning run to end with 38 from 21 as the Patriots got over the line with a whopping 12.2 overs in hand.
