Patriots claim a 21-run win to start their campaign. That margin flatters the Royals. Sherfane Rutherford and Dwayne Bravo were the heroes for the Patriots with a magnificent 115-run partnership after coming together at 39 for 4. The Patriots then bowled well. Dominic Drakes was sensational as were the spinners after Cottrell made an important early breakthrough. Rutherford is Player of the Match for his 53 off 43 balls. Thanks for your company tonight. Join us again tomorrow.

Kent: "Why didn't Bravo give the last over to Allen? Cottrell has a history of bowling lots of wide balls at the back end of the match" Clearly wants to give Cottrell some practice with no pressure. But he hasn't performed well
