St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have won the Hero Caribbean Premier League T20 tournament for the first time.
Chasing 160 for victory against the St Lucia Kings and needing one run from the final ball to cop the title, Dominic Drakes (48 not out) kept his nerve and hit the winning run in a last-ball thriller. Saint Lucia will once again feel the agony of getting within touching distance of winning the title but the game was much closer this time around. After such a tight game the men from the former Zouks now Kings will have to now get ready for next year and hope to continue the form that has got them to two consecutive finals.
Kings’ pacer Kesrick Williams did well to restrict Drakes and Naseem Shah in the final over but the 23-year-old Bajan batted brilliantly to salvage a nail-biting three-wicket win.
Batting first, the Kings were led to 159/7 with opener Rahkeem Cornwall and all-rounder Roston Chase top-scoring with 43 runs each. A late cameo from Keemo Paul (39 runs from 21 balls) also bolstered the Kings’ tally in final overs.
