Scorecard and ball-by-ball details
The Bravo brothers shone again and kept Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel's chances of reaching the final alive with an 18-run win against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in a rain-reduced match in Port-of-Spain. Darren Bravo unleashed another cameo and Dwayne finished with 3 for 15 to curb Patriots' score to 123 for 7, after Red Steel had made 134 for 5 in 14 overs.
Red Steel, after opting to bat, were given a solid start by Jacques Kallis and William Perkins, who put on 43 in 5.4 overs. But once the partnership was broken, Patriots fought back by taking another two wickets within 10 runs and a rain interruption in the ninth over cut six overs from the innings.
Darren Bravo then struck two sixes and a four off Carlos Brathwaite in the 12th over, taking 20 runs off it, and hammered three sixes in the last over before being run-out for a 15-ball 40. Cameron Delport faced the last two balls of the final over and tonked those for sixes too. In all, 33 runs came off the final over - Brathwaite, who conceded a six off the first ball, followed it up with his second full-toss above waist height and had to be taken off the attack; Shahid Afridi completed the over, conceding four sixes in five balls.
Chasing a revised target of 142, Patriots lost Martin Guptill for a duck in the second over before Evin Lewis and Marlon Samuels charged them past 50 in the sixth over. Lewis then holed out to long-on off Dwayne Bravo before Afridi and Samuels combined to bring the equation down to 64 from 36 balls.
Patriots lost their way thereafter, though, with Samuels bowled for 25 by left-arm spinner Derone Davis and Dwayne Bravo dismissing Raymon Reifer and Afridi off consecutive deliveries in the 11th over. Davis then came back and struck twice to remove Brathwaite and Devon Thomas, leaving Patriots 114 for 7, with 27 required from the last two overs. Dwayne Bravo and Kallis didn't concede a single boundary off the last 12 balls, giving away only eight runs in that span.
