Patriots stuns Tallawahs in game changer for first win at home

In an admirable comeback, the Patriots won with a score of 199 for 5 while the Tallawahs couldn’t even accumulate half of that. They were annihilated in the 16th over, making only 80 for 10.

Lewis’ brilliant batting of 6 four’s and 6 six’s, making 82 runs from 45 balls, and Guptill’s 35 runs from 25 balls, Samuel’s 19 from 18 balls, Afridi’s 14 from 12 balls, followed by Braithwaite’s 36 runs from 18 balls placed the Patriots in an envious position.

Several commendable partnerships included Lewis and Guptill, 71; Samuels and Lewis, 72; and Afridi and Brathwaite, 45. 

Marlon Samuels, captain of the Patriots, had complained in the two previous games about the fielding of his team and had vowed to correct it.

The best bowlers for the Patriots were Cotterrell, 3 wickets; Shamsi, 4 wickets; and Afridi, 2 wickets.

After Chris Gayle, the Tallawah’s strong man, was bowled by Cotterrell for a mere 8, the Tallawah’s never recovered with the most runs made by Chris Lynn, 20, and Andre Russell, 18. The best partnership was between Jayawardene and Lynn, which only amounted to 25.

It is often said that cricket is a game of glorious uncertainties.
