Trinbago Knight Riders continued to defend his role in the three-horse race for the CPL crown of the regular season, returning to Jamaica Tallawahs and Guyana Amazon Warriors at the top of the board with a Victory of 46 races on St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in Warner Park.

The consistency of Colin Munro prompted the Knight Riders to another victory when the New Zealander scored his fourth fifty in seven games before Dwayne Bravo attacked the Patriots attack with a whirlwind stroke that included five successive sixes of Alzarri Joseph in the 19th to put the goal out of the reach of the Patriots.

Attila el Mun

Sunil Narine read his form at CPL 2018 continued when he was working hard for a long time. in the second over 6. But the lack of Narine f runs – 56 in seven innings – has been covered by the merciless execution of Munro. Entering n. 3, Munro made sure the innings did not skip, hitting an undefeated 76 of 50 balls. Munro took 41 balls to reach his half century, the slowest of his four fifties this season, but his tickets were the perfect platform to give Dwayne a free-circulation license at the time of death. In the process, he regained the leadership of CPL 2018 from Kieron Pollard with 346 to an average of 57.66.

Zero to 30

Dwayne entered with 20 balls in the innings after the dismissal of Darren Bravo in the 17th, splicing Sheldon Cottrell midway through the match by 18. Dwayne went on strike for the start of the 19th José, who until then had been brilliant with figures of 3-0-13-2. Joseph had beaten Chris Lynn and Brendon McCullum by hitting them at breakneck speed, but it took shrewdness to displace Dwayne from the crease and experience of the dancer & # 39; Champion & # 39; Champion & # 39; showed the 21-year-old player in the sequence that won the match. [19659009] After a point ball to start the final, Dwayne proceeded to break five consecutive sixes. The first two were conducted on mid-on and mid-off respectively before the third was hit on the deep square leg. The cream of the cream was the fourth maximum in the sequence. After three full and straight balls had passed through the rope, Joseph tried a large gorilla, but Bravo stayed in his fold and used his wrists to cut with enough force to clear the point boundary. When Joseph recovered once more from the final ball, Dwayne gently led him from the middle.

Munro resumed the reins for the final, driving a four and six in the middle as part of an 18-race run. 20th of Cottrell to bring the TKR to 199. Munro's attack rate was modest before the final burst, but he was efficient in only absorbing 12 point balls, scoring 76% of his deliveries at the end. He was not particularly fluent during a 78-run third-run partnership with McCullum and played a backseat role at the 66-race stand with Dwayne, but provided the backbone that was central to another TKR victory.

Dr. Phil

Behind Ali Khan and Dwayne, TKR has struggled to establish a third bowling pace option this season. Javon Searles, Shannon Gabriel and Kevon Cooper had shuffled the paper without much success. Seeking a solution, TKR called Anderson Phillip, 22, to the XI for his season debut and his performance was just what the doctor ordered for his success in the field.

Anderson entered the fifth and had Chris Gayle advance a cut behind three balls later for the first wicket of the chase. Only a sharp yorker through a good leg by new batter Rassie van der Dussen denied Phillip a maid. The Patriots had 78 for 2 in 10 with Evin Lewis 49 out of 34 balls, in a decent position for a major pitch as has been the case to chase teams in CPL 2018, but Phillip sank that plan by catching Lewis two overs later for 53 hits. He paced with a full ball after Lewis crawled too far over his stumps.

Phillip returned on the 19th to mathematically secure the match with Brandon King's wicket, making him stuck on the leading edge. His figures were ruined by a cosmetic four and six by Carlos Brathwaite later in the finale, but by then Phillip had provided a much-needed stimulus that TKR had lost in his third sewing option.
