What a game, what a chase. First the Patriots cruised, then they lost their way, then recovered, then looked like they will be choked. In the end, they've finished this off in a blaze of glory. The man of the match? Fabien Allen, who finishes 65 not out off 34 balls. The most anyone's chased down in an over in the CPL is 17. Drakes, the young man on debut, was under pressure even though he was defending 17, but he'll learn from this experience. Great show of spirit from Jason Holder in walking up to Allen and embracing him in a hug. Defeats like these can be a bitter pill to swallow. This is now the sixth straight loss for Barbados Tridents.

Fabian Allen is the Player of the Match. He's clearly a man of few words. "Just stuck to my plans, believed in myself," he says, making it look ridiculously easy. "Best innings I've played so far."

Drakes to Allen, 1 leg bye, swings, misses, the ball rolls off the pad into the leg side and they scamper a leg bye. This is the first time Patriots have chased down 150 plus in the CPL.

Now he'll bowl from around the stumps

Drakes to Allen, FOUR runs, wallops this full toss over midwicket. One bounce to the boundary, that makes it scores level. He celebrated prematurely thinking that was going all the way. Drakes miscalculated again, going for a yorker. Oh, gosh. Spare a thought for the young man

Drakes to Allen, SIX runs, where has he walloped this? Out of the ground! This time, Drakes went full. It was almost as if the batsman knew what was coming. Just made a hint of room and then teed off like a golfer. Straight hit, super hit. One strike away from victory.

Down to 11 off five, Holder goes up to his young bowler to have a chat.

Drakes to Allen, SIX runs, flat-batted over the bowler's head, smashed just wide of the sightscreen to bring up his half-century. Too short, he had enough time and power to make room and belt this.

Dominic Drakes, on debut, will bowl the final over. Up against a guy who has been striking at 160. Big pressure over coming up.

Wahab Riaz to Joseph, OUT, the yorker has done the trick, couldn't get under this one. Swung through blindly, the ball tailed away late to flatten off stump. Superb delivery. All things right, except it may be a no-ball. In the end, the benefit of doubt is given to the bowler, because it appeared as if there was something behind the line on the first landing point.

Holder to Cutting, OUT, the leg stump has been flattened as he misses an ugly heave. What was he trying to do? Why? The required rate was well under control. Length ball sliding in, skid through as well. Needed to just give a single to Allen. Poor from Cutting.
