The St Kitts & Nevis Patriots claimed just their second win of the 2016 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) against the Trinbago Knight Riders at the Central Broward Stadium in Lauderhill, Florida. A season best innings from Evin Lewis allowed the Patriots to reach 180-5 on an excellent pitch. It proved too much for the Knight Riders to chase as they stumbled in the face of some excellent Patriots bowling.
The Patriots got off to an excellent start in the PowerPlay, making 65 runs and losing only one wicket when JJ Smuts was caught in the deep off the bowling of Sunil Narine off the last ball of the sixth over. The opening stand was completely dominated by Smuts’ opening partner Evin Lewis who made 46 runs inside the first six overs.
