10:37pm What a match. Brathwaite still out there with the home fans, walking around and showing his gratitude as they finish their home leg of the tournament. We'll see you tomorrow. Have a good night!

Carlos: We owe these fans. Three of our wins have come at home. Alzarri was warming up but the guys said it was my night so I backed myself [in the Super Over].

Pollard: Things went pretty well when we batted. Alzarri bowled well after the first 10 overs. 216 I thought was just about par, could have got 20-30 more. It was a great game of cricket. Our boys fought hard. In hindsight I could have bowled the last over, but he [Neesham] did the job for us a couple of nights ago. Yeah he had a bad day but I backed him. I could have maybe backed myself like Carlos here did tonight, but it's part and parcel of the game.

Carlos Brathwaite is the Man of the Match.

10.18pm What a turnaround. Helped along by that Neesham spell, sure, but this is a superb comeback nonetheless. They'd conceded 136 in the first 11 overs, pulled it back in the middle overs and kept it to 216. Were four down halfway through and still managed to stay alive into the last over. When it came, they found some luck, and with the second chance in the Super Over, they completely dominated the best team in the tournament. All that bickering before Brathwaite's over in the dugout is history now. He's almost singlehandedly hauled them to victory tonight. He's leading the victory lap.

0.6
Brathwaite to Pollard, no run
straight back to the bowler! Ex captain versus present captain. It's Brathwaite's night tonight. Short of a length outside off, pulled firmly and straight back. He fields the ball and roars as he slams his chest. The home crowd has gone berserk
0.5
4
Brathwaite to Pollard, FOUR runs
Patriots celebrating as this bounces over the midwicket boundary. Length ball on leg stump. Flicks and gets it off the inside half of the bat. Brathwaite doesn't care. Geeing up the crowd, rousing them with both his hands. Pump it up, he's telling them
0.4
Brathwaite to Pollard, no run
can't get that away! Surely, that's the win! Brathwaite has found the full length on Pollard's pads from around the wicket. He wants to flick this over midwicket, but that's slammed into his pads
0.3
1
Brathwaite to Simmons, 1 run
lovely. Low full toss at leg stump from around the wicket. No room at all. Heaves at it and gets a thick inside edge out to deep square. Pollard won't push for the second
0.2
w
Brathwaite to Bravo, OUT
given out caught behind! He'd be run out at the other end any way. Length ball wide outside off. Throws his hands at it and gets a thin edge through to the keeper. Pollard has run to the other end. The keeper has lobbed the ball to Brathwaite who has picked the bails out with Bravo nowhere in the picture. But as it stands, Pollard won't get strike because it's out caught

0.1
Brathwaite to Bravo, no run
beaten. Full and tailing away wide outside off. Bravo shuffles and swings and is beaten. That's past the wide marker and is not called, perhaps because of the shuffle

Bravo and Pollard walk out. Lendl Simmons also padded up. Carlos Brathwaite will bowl. Doesn't look like the dugout is pleased with that decision. Alzarri has been called over and told by a coach that he should be bowling, although there's no way to confirm that. He shrugs. But some players and pretty much all the coaching staff are not happy with something. Not great signs. It is Brathwaite now, in any case.

STKNP: 18/0CRR: 18 

A good start and a great finish from Brathwaite there. Ali Khan did so well in the three balls in between, but this is now a stiff target. Knight Riders have to get what Patriots had to get in regulation time - 19 to win off 6. Could be Cottrell who bowls the over. But Alzarri Joseph is also in the mix.

Ali Khan to Brathwaite, FOUR runs
creamed into the straight boundary. Superb hitting from Brathwaite. Ali Khan bowls this one in the slot, narrowly missing on his yorker. Just outside off, front leg out of the way and powered past his partner. Pollard can't stop that to his left, it's too quick
0.5
6
Ali Khan to Brathwaite, SIX runs
sails over deep square! What a shot! Low full toss into the pads, but there's no room at all. He has to get really low to get this away from underneath it. And he manages it before using his wrists to get this square on the leg side
0.4
Ali Khan to Brathwaite, no run
beaten. A lovely yorker, in the corridor. Brathwaite has his front leg way out in the leg side to make room, but this yorker is tailing in late and he can't connect on the slog
0.3
1
Ali Khan to Lewis, 1 run
nicely bowled. Yorker length and just outside off. Opens the face and drives this to the sweeper's right. Ali Khan gets in the way very evidently on purpose at the other end as Lewis sets off for the second run. There wasn't a run, but Lewis is not pleased. Pushes him away and is screaming as players and umpires intervene
0.2

Ali Khan to Brathwaite, 1 run
down to long-off. Low full toss outside off, can only get it along the floor as he throws the hands at this
0.1

Ali Khan to Brathwaite, SIX runs
pumped straight over the bowler! Length ball outside off, Brathwaite is waiting outside off, right behind the line of this. Slams it straight and flat, into the sightscreen

9:55pm Evin Lewis and Carlos Brathwaite will be the first two batsmen. Ali Khan will bowl. Third man, fine leg, point and square leg are in the circle.

9:48pm It's a Super Over now, of course. Patriots will bat...after a toss that TKR win. That knock from Lewis dismantled Neesham earlier in the innings, hitting him for 31, and setting the pace early on. TKR came back from that with four wickets before the 10-over mark, but Brathwaite's brilliant fifty kept his team in it. It was still a tall ask but a swinging, flailing Emrit has done it for Patriots. A superb penultimate over from Ali Khan gave TKR an 18-run cushion, but two edges on either side of the keeper, helped along by the no-ball from Neesham means the match is still alive.

Neesham to Emrit, FOUR runs
it's a tie! A low full toss on off stump. He swings across the line and gets a leading edge that flies past short third man! Can you believe it. Hands on hips from Neesham and all he can do is smile. It's gone wrong for him in every way possible

A boundary ties this. If they could pick one bowler tonight to be bowling this ball, Patriots would have chosen Neesham. Can he hold them down?

Neesham to Emrit, 2 runs
full ball at the stumps, backs away and drives along the floor to long-off's right. Lazy effort there, really. They take an easy second

Neesham to Emrit, 2 runs
thick inside edge to deep square's right. Full ball in at the stumps and he can't get better connection on the slog

Neesham to Emrit, 3 no ball
oh Neesham, Neesham. There's no end to his horror night. First, a beamer outside off. Emrit misses on the cut but is disoriented. His partner is running, he's not. Ramdin lobs it up to the non-striker's and Neesham can't gather the ball. Gives away another run and Emrit retains the strike for the free-hit

Neesham to Joseph, 1 run
nicely bowled. It's been three good balls this over. Yorker again at leg stump. Inside edge onto the pad and out into the off side

Neesham to Joseph, FOUR runs
inside edge into the fine leg boundary! Mails the yorker after following him down leg side. Looks to drill into the leg side and gets it between keeper and short fine

sloppy. Low full toss is driven harmlessly out to long-on, whose throw to Ramdin is fumbled to give them a second

Good over and the end of a top spell from Ali Khan. 1 for 6 in that over, 2 for 27 on the night. Will it be Pollard to bowl the last over? No. It's Neesham! Quite the vote of confidence from Pollard. 18 to defend.

18.6
Ali Khan to Emrit, no run
beaten. Overpitched and in his swinging arc. He's behind it too, but can't manage to connect on the slog

Ali Khan to Allen, OUT
taken at long-off! Bouncer in the corridor. Allen wants to swipes this over the midwicket side but has no control underneath it. Top-edge floats up for Bravo and he's calm under it

Ali Khan to Allen, FOUR runs
through Pollard at long-on! A lovely athletic effort from him but he's lost out to physics. Low full toss on middle stump, punched firmly to Pollard's right. He sprints some 10-15 yards and puts in a full length dive to his right. Manages to get it back in, but its into his body and ricochets into the padding
18.3
1
Ali Khan to Emrit, 1 run
nicely connected, but he can only get a single out at deep midwicket. Good bowling. Full and wide outside off. He steps into the leg side to try and get this square, with no fielders in the deep. But he forced him to punch it to the man out there

Ali Khan to Allen, no run
appeal for catch off the boot. Length ball wide outside off, gets a big inside edge onto boot and it lobs back to the bowler. Sent upstairs with the soft signal not out. Has that bounced before the boot? Yes, deems the third umpire

Pollard to Emrit, no run
slower bouncer down leg side. Not called wide and now it's Emrit's turn to be annoyed with a decision

Pollard to Emrit, SIX runs
Munro can't quite hold this at deep square. Slower ball at a length outside off. Shuffles and drags it off the inside half. Munro sprints to his right and has already touched the boundary padding as he tries to jump up and take this. Would have been six even if he managed to hold on. As it turns out, he's not held on in any case
17.4
Pollard to Emrit, no run
appeal for catch-behind is turned down. Slower ball at a length outside off. Looks to slog and is through it early. Replays have a soft sound as ball passes bat. Ramdin is not impressed with the decision
17.3

Pollard to Emrit, SIX runs
leading edge over the third man boundary! He was looking to slog that length ball over the leg side, but it's pinged off the edge and carried all the way
