It was another night of extraordinary Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) playoff drama at Providence Stadium in Guyana as St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots sensationally grabbed a semi-final spot with a two-wicket victory over Jamaica Tallawahs with just one ball remaining.

Remarkably, that was exactly the same outcome as Tuesday night when Guyana Amazon Warriors edged past Trinbago Knight Riders; but while that was a slow-burning, nerve-shredding, bowler-dominated thriller this was a record-breaking rollercoaster of a run-fest in which Glenn Phillips’ magnificent century for the Tallawahs ultimately proved in vain.

Phillips’ 103 from 63 balls propelled the Tallawahs to a Hero CPL record score of 191/5 at Providence Stadium, but, Ben Cutting’s huge six over midwicket from the fifth ball of the final over saw the Patriots to an unlikely victory.
