Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
After getting beaten by Guyana Amazon Warriors, Barbados Tridents registered a strong comeback against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots to claim 2 important points in the tournament. The 8th game of the ongoing edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) saw another fascinating encounter where Tridents overpowered Patriots by 18 runs.
Winning the toss, Patriots decided to bowl first and restricted Barbados to a manageable total. While things looked good for them till the 14th over, belligerence of Leniko Boucher and JP Duminy helped Tridents to post 186 runs on the board. By no means, the total looked out of the reach of Patriots, but an excellent bowling spell of Sandeep Lamichhane took care of the contest.
The Nepalese spin sensation delivered a stunning bowling outing which saw him picking 3 crucial wickets of Laurie Evans, Shamarh Brooks and Carlos Brathwaite to dent Patriots’ chase. Portraying his spin-magic, the 19-year old conceded only 22 runs in his quota of 4 overs. For a laudable performance, the Syangja born was rewarded with the player of the match award.
