So that'll be all from this contest but there's loads of cricketing news and action to look forward to from around the globe. The Trinbago Knight Riders and the Guyana Amazon Warriors lock horns in a few hours from now so do return to Sportskeeda to follow our coverage of the same. Thank you for tuning into our coverage of this contest - this is the duo of Pratyush Rohra and Sooryanarayanan Sesha taking your leave for the moment. See you around soon - toodles!
Just the kind of tonic that the Patriots needed to put their campaign back on track. With six points in their kitty and three more games to go, they'll be looking to make winning a happy habit and start peaking at what would be deemed the right time. For the Tallawahs, they've now lost two on the bounce and they'd want to stay clear of those breathing down their neck with a win soon enough.
Rovman Powell (Tallawahs Captain): We have no luck with the toss in this competition but hopefully, that changes as the competition goes on (smiles). We had a good start but credit to them for the way they pulled things back beautifully. Raymon played a good knock to help us recover but it wasn't enough. (WI squad inclusion) I send my heartiest congratulations to Raymon (Reifer). Personally, I'm in a good place now, and hopefully, I can carry that into the World Cup. 
Dwayne Bravo (Patriots Captain): The weather is something we don't have control over as players. But it's great to get two points. Very important for us after a tough start. Credit to the bowlers - to come back and restrict them under 140 was great. Darren needed that time in the middle. I always give him that confidence. I still feel he's one of the better players in the region. From the management's point of view, there's no doubt. But the bowlers won it for us. Rashid Khan was brilliant with the ball and then we had a great Powerplay from Evin Lewis and Andre Fletcher before Darren finished it off well. Just want to take it game by game. We had two games that were rained out and we have no control over the weather. Looking forward to our next game on Saturday. Every time we take the field, whatever opportunity we get, we just try to win.
Rashid Khan is the Player of the Match. Here is what he has to say: I just try my best to keep it simple for myself. That's something that is pretty hard to do but that's what I'm looking to do in every match. (Plan today?) They had a good start but I did what I had to do to get my team back into it by keeping it economical. The more you keep the simple, the better it is. I know the areas I have to bowl in and just want to enjoy the cricket, on and off the field. You have your bad and good days but that's okay. (Pitch) As soon as I bowled, I knew there would be something on offer for us. (Targets?) When you win for the team in the final stages and get into the next round, that's always good. I'll try my best and the team will try their best in every game. So far, we're happy with that. 
St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots win by 8 wickets (DLS).

Andre Fletcher 45* (38) | Rashid Khan 1/8 (4)
Raymon Reifer 40* (26) | Imad Wasim 1/19 (2.3)

A dominant display from start to finish by Dwayne Bravo's men. Everything went their way including the toss and upon electing to bowl, they kept a lacklustre first four overs aside to restrict the Tallawahs to 139. A downpour thereafter reduced the chase to a 15-over affair, leaving the Patriots with 113 to get.

The rain seemed to quicken the surface and ease it out for batting as Evin Lewis and Andre Fletcher were up and running in a flash. The latter was given a lifeline by Brandon King and he was in the mood to make it count big time. The openers pretty much killed the chase in the Powerplay, even as an excellent catch by Chris Green put the game in the balance with the dismissal of Lewis.

It was a happy homecoming for Darren Bravo as he came out swinging for the bleachers against the spinners. He took a liking to Rovman Powell as well and mind you, this was after a collision between him and Nicholson Gordon saw him stranded way short of his crease. An act of sportsmanship by skipper Powell and Imad Wasim saw the Tallawahs retract the appeal thereafter.

It was smooth sailing for the Patriots and while Bravo couldn't see his team through to the chequered flag, Sherfane Rutherford finished it with a massive hit with the Spiceman for company. A crucial couple of points and the defending champions have put their campaign back on track. Stick around for the presentation...
A clean blow from Rutherford and he seals the deal in fitting fashion. It's been a performance worthy of being called the defending champions and they couldn't have had it coming at a better time alright. St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots win by 8 wickets with 15 deliveries to spare (DLS).
13.0
12.3 Imad Wasim to Sherfane Rutherford, SIX! RUTHERFORD FINISHES IT OFF WITH A MAMMOTH HIT! Genuine drag down from Wasim and Rutherford's gleefully put it away, hanging back to launch this high and handsomely to clear the mid-wicket ropes. Job done for the Patriots! They win by 8 wickets. 
12.2 Imad Wasim to Sherfane Rutherford, into the block hole outside off-stump, Rutherford squeezes it out to point, no run
Can Rutherford seal it in style?
12.1 Imad Wasim to Andre Fletcher, good length delivery outside the off-stump, Fletcher prods forward to fence it to short third man for a single 
Imad Wasim [2.0-0-12-1] is back into the attack. He will bowl around the wicket.
Bravo seemed keen to finish it that very over but his dismissal has just stretched the inevitable a little further. Just 7 to get though and it's only a matter of time.

11.6 Fabian Allen to Sherfane Rutherford, pushed through full and outside off, Rutherford pushes it out to Allen's left. Well stopped by the bowler, no run
11.5 Fabian Allen to Andre Fletcher, a bit short to slide into the pads, Fletcher works it to deep backward square leg for one
11.4 Fabian Allen to Andre Fletcher, arm-ball sliding in with the angle this time, Fletcher lunges forward to defend with bat and pad close together, no run
11.3 Fabian Allen to Sherfane Rutherford, UPPISH! Floated full outside the off-stump, Rutherford looks to club this down the ground but he's only found the man at long-on on the bounce
Sherfane Rutherford, LHB, comes to the crease. He will take strike.
