Scorer: Chandan Duorah | Commentator: Sreshth Shah

10.42 pm We went overtime today, but it was all worth it. A day of massive maximums that overhauled rain, wind and even a power outage as 250 runs were scored in just more than 18 overs. Hope you enjoyed ESPNcricinfo's coverage of this exciting encounter. From Sreshth and Akshay, it's good bye!

Victorious captain Dwayne Bravo says: "The good thing about the game was that Badree had five balls left (during the break), and I knew Darren (Bravo) knew him really well. Well played to Darren and McCullum and they put Nabi, a good bowler, under pressure too. The momentum was with us. At the halfway stage, even when Gayle was batting, I tried to tell my team to bowl in the right areas. Always told my team that their weakness was their bowling and with a batting line-up like ours we told our team we can chase anything. Fielding was poor tonight but we've done well overall. Well done to Gayle as well for bringing the Patriots back into contention, from where they were last year."

Losing captain Chris Gayle says: "We thought we had this in the bag, but we've watched a lot of T20. We knew they could still get it, which they did, but these happen in this format. It was a great game of cricket. Our boys should hold their heads high. Want to thank the fans for the turnout this week. We're still second. I batted well, but importantly, everyone batted really well."

10.31 pm No surprises there. Darren Bravo is the Man of the Match. He says: "I backed myself and played to my strengths. I was positive and I knew one good innings would get me to form. McCullum (40* off 14) played really well. Want to dedicate this innings to my grandmum, who isn't doing too well right now." Comments from the two captains soon. Stick around.

10.29 pm When the game restarted, Knight Riders needed 52 off 17 balls. They knocked off those 52 runs in 13 balls. The last few balls read: 6,6,6,0,1,0,6,1,6,4,6,6,6.

What a great sight this at Warner Park. The Patriots are thanking their fans for sticking around given this is their last match at home. The spectators are on their feet to congratulate their Patriots.

Bravo finishes not out on 38 off 10 balls. The man has turned the game around. Sunil Narine runs onto the field and I've never seen him this ecstatic. Jumps onto Bravo to congratulate the batsman.

Carter to DM Bravo, SIX runs, oh, you beauty, Darren Bravo! It's pitched up on middle and Bravo sees his team through to the win! Stands and delivers as the ball flies high and beyond the ropes. Smashes that over the bowler's head and finishes the match in style. Knight Riders win by eight wickets.

Carter to DM Bravo, SIX runs, full on middle stump, Bravo hits that over the bowler's head and there's a chance for long on to catch that! No! Just flies over Shamsi's outstretched hands and it's six more. Knight Riders need four more to win off the game's last-five balls

Manish: "What a crazy match is this... I got up when Gayle started post the 1st rain break and has been Hara Kiri since"

Jonathan Carter will bowl the final over. Ten runs needed off six balls. What carnage the last 11 balls have seen.

END OF OVER:
5 | 23 Runs | TKR: 76/2 (10 runs required from 6 balls, RR: 15.20, RRR: 10.00)

Mohammad Nabi to McCullum, SIX runs, full on leg stump and McCullum backs away, plays the horizontal shot towards the leg side and sends that over deep mid-wicket. Not textbook but full value.

Mohammad Nabi to McCullum, FOUR runs, good length on leg stump, slogged away towards deep mid wicket off his back foot. Brandon King, at cow corner, races to his right to stop that and even puts his hand out, but the ball just goes past his palm. Another four

Eight balls. Twenty runs to win.

Mohammad Nabi to McCullum, SIX runs, full toss on leg stump and McCullum sees that like a watermelon. Makes room on the leg side and he gives his bat the complete swing. Hits the bat's sweet spot and that's over cow corner for six more. Didn't even middle it, but it had enough power anyway

The equation now reads 26 off 9 balls.

Mohammad Nabi to DM Bravo, 1 run, good length on middle stump, tries to muscle that towards the leg side but can't time that well. Goes to the sweeper-fielder on the leg side
