11.59 pm: Well that turned out into quite a thriller after meandering about in the middle. Tridents had it, then Patriots had it, then Tridents came back, and then Patriots sneaked through. Do join us for more CPL action tomorrow. Until then, this is Saurabh Somani signing off on behalf of Peter Della Penna.
Carlos Brathwaite is the Man of the Match: Total team effort. To be honest I don't think I deserve this. Shamarh Brooks played a superb stabilising innings. We wanted to give Dominic (Drakes) as much to defend in the last over and myself and Cottrell picked up important wickets and didn't allow partnerships to build. In the last over, it was just about reassuring him about what he wanted to do. The message beforehand was 'Just keep it simple'. We play our best cricket when we keep it simple. Brooks played proper cricket shots and had consistent contributions around him. We would still like to get more consistent to get to 170-180. We thought 150 was about par, 15 runs short.
Jason Holder: We didn't bat well enough in the back end. I don't think we held our nerves well enough. Our destiny is in our hands (for the playoffs) and we just need to control what we can control. We just need to put together some runs on a consistent basis. Lots of positives in the group, the boys have done outstandingly. We just need to put it together as a collective unit.
11.55 pm: Patriots are through to the playoffs with this result, but Tridents aren't out of it yet. Peter Della Penna tells me tomorrow will be do or die for Tridents v Zouks.
11.42 pm: A thriller that both teams would have felt they were in control of through various points in the match. Tridents did well to keep Patriots to just 149, with Shakib making a fine start. He carried on with the bat too, and while he and Duminy were together, the chase looked a breeze. A collapse followed, with Carlos Brathwaite at the centre with three wickets, before Raymond Reifer connected with some big blows. He'll rue going for that second run.
2 to win. 1 to tie. Tension palpable at the ground. ONly five fielders in the circle
3 off 2 now. Bowler and captain in discussion
3 off 3. Square leg, midwicket and long-on on the boundary. Fine leg comes up
11 off 6 for the win. 10 off 6 for the Super Over
12 needed for the win. 11 for the Super Over. Drakes will bowl the last over. Brathwaite and Emrit are in his ear with all sorts of advice and discussions on field placing
The batsmen crossed so Reifer is on strike. Chemar Holder the new man in. He bowled really well for West Indies A against India A, but how will he go with the bat?
Srik: "17.2: J.Holder cud have caught that " - hah, that's true.
