Roston Chase also bagged three wickets, while Ramdin top-scored with 46 off 35 balls for the Patriot. Emrit’s side are still looking for their first points of CPL 2020, with their batting being a cause for concern.

Successive wins for St Lucia Zouks

Obed McCoy to bowl the last - the Patriots need 28 off the 20th! Sheldon Cottrell hits two sixes and a four to fetch 17 off the over but it is not enough as St Kitts fall short by 10 runs. Kuggeleijn and Roston Chase lead St Lucia Zouks to victory.  Kuggeleijn 4/33 | Chase 3/12 

23:09 (IST)22 Aug 2020
Kuggeleijn gets his 4th

Emrit pulls it straight to deep midwicket and that will be the fourth wicket for the Kiwi pacer. What a day he is having. This is the final nail in the coffin and the game is set for the Zouks. No way are they losing from here. SNP - 136/8 in 18 ovs

22:59 (IST)22 Aug 2020
SIX runs

Emrit has got hold off it by Williams and absolutely launched into it to clear deep midwicket, need more of those. One-handed hit to a full delivery angling in. SNP- 129/7 | need 44 runs in 18 balls

22:54 (IST)22 Aug 2020
Patriots fall like a pack of cards

Kuggeleijn two in two! Ramdin (46) is gone as he goes for the big hit but mistimes it straight to Nabi at long-on. Sohail Tanvir falls on the very next ball, slicing it straight to Sammy. It's all falling apart for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. SNP - 117/7 after 16 ovs

22:42 (IST)22 Aug 2020
Kuggeleijn strikes

The over ends with a wicket. A short delivery by Kuggeleijn and Powell, who had advanced down the wicket, swipes at it but can only get an edge which goes straight to the wicket-keeper. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots lose half their side. SNP- 103/5 after 15 ovs


22:40 (IST)22 Aug 2020
Big hit at last

The req. run-rate was creeping up and a boundary was the need of the hour and Ramdin with a vicious swing and it crosses the ropes on the leg-side for a SIX! That was much needed and with it the hundred comes up. Kuggeleijn with a wary look walks back to his crease. SNP- 102/4 after 13.2 ovs

22:27 (IST)22 Aug 2020

Ben Dunk goes for the slog sweep but misses the ball completely and the ball knocks the stumps. This is the third wicket for Roston Chase. He now has 3 wickets for 12 runs! Simply stunning! "This is a mad spell of off-spin bowling from Chase," says Bala on social media. SNP- 82/4 after 11 ovs

22:23 (IST)22 Aug 2020
Halfway mark

The fall of a wicket has slowed down the run rate and only 15 runs came in over 8 and 9. Roston Chase and Obe McCoy are tightening the screws. However, Denesh Ramdin gets hold of a fullish delivery by McCoy and latches on to it and smacks it for a six! SNP- 78/3 after 10 ovs

22:03 (IST)22 Aug 2020

After both Lewis and Ramdin hit boundaries in the previous over, Chase slows them down... with a wicket! Chase gets the big fish as he dismisses the hard-hitting Lewis on 29. Two overs in, two wickets and just three conceded. SKN are 54/3 after 7 overs.


21:50 (IST)22 Aug 2020

And there's another one! Roston Chase comes into the attack and removes Da Silva (1) as the batsman's careless shot is caught by Kuggeleijn. Denesh Ramdin comes on in his place. SKN are 40/2 after 4.2 overs.

21:49 (IST)22 Aug 2020
Lewis continues hitting

Joshua Da Silva came in at number three to help out Lewis, but the opener needs none at all. Picking up from where he had left, Lewis punishes Scott Kuggeleijn with a massive six with a pull shot and a four. 12 runs from the over. SKN are 40/1 after 4 overs.

21:40 (IST)22 Aug 2020
Brilliant start by SKN despite losing wicket

Evin Lewis and Chris Lynn started the chase for St. Kitts and Lewis (14*) went berserk in the second over when he smacked Zafar left, right, and centre. Four. Six. Four. But St. Lucia soon exacted revenge and got their first breakthrough in the third over when Nabi removed Lynn (14) from the crease, owing to Najibullah's brilliant fielding heroics at backward square. SKN are 28/1 after 3 overs.

21:16 (IST)22 Aug 2020
STZ 172/6 after 20 ovs

Brillant Finish by Nabi at the end! Finishes strong with 35*(22) to take the Zouks past 170. A six and a four in the last over of Cottrell does the trick. This will be a challenging total to chase for the Patriots. Lynn and Lewis need to get them off to a flyer. Stay tuned for the run-chase

21:12 (IST)22 Aug 2020
Back to back SIXES!

Nabi on the charge! The first one is a massive hit as he gets enough room to free his arms and heave it over midwicket. The next one is even better - picks the slower one early and it is over long-on. Finally, the Zouks are getting a move on. STZ 156/6 after 19 overs

21:07 (IST)22 Aug 2020
Run Out!!

Rakheem Cornwall is run out! Nabi hit the ball it straight back at the stumps ( non-striker's end). The ball ricochets off the stumps but there was no run in it. But Cornwall came down the pitch, not realizing his partner (Nabi) is not interested. It wasl all too late by then! 

Last 5 over-26 Runs and 4 Wickets


20:55 (IST)22 Aug 2020
2 wickets in 1 over

Sohail Tanvir is on a roll ! Najibullah, out caught by Ramdin!! Faint little edge through to the keeper. Darren Sammy is gone next- another caught-behind for Tanvir, who gets his line right after an ordinary previous delivery. STZ 123/5 after 15 ovs

20:33 (IST)22 Aug 2020
OUT! STZ 102/2

Jon-Russ Jaggesar strikes with the fifth ball of his over and Fletcher misses out on his fifty! Short delivery and Fletcher pulls it towards the longest side of the fence and it is taken comfortably by Powell. Fletcher is out for 46 off 33 balls. Roston Chase is the new man in.

20:23 (IST)22 Aug 2020
Halfway Mark

Najibullah gets a boundary off Emrit and then a single to end the over and with that St Lucia reaches 91/1 after 10 overs. They seem comfortably on top and set for a big score. How much can they get from here?

20:20 (IST)22 Aug 2020

Emrit finishes the over and it is a maiden! WOW! Why was he holding himself back so far? "What an over from Emrit! He is such an outstanding bowler in this format and what makes him so mighty impressive is the fact that he is a very clever bowler with a change of pace and variations... Such an underrated player in this format" writes Jatin on social media.STZ - 73/1 after 8 ovs
