New Delhi: Legendary Chris Gayle started the fire works at Basseterre, but ended up picking loose ends in a Caribbean Premier League (CPL) match between St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Trinbago Knight Riders on Wednesday.
Batting first hosts Patriots scored 162/3 with Gayle leading the charge with a 47-ball 93, which witnessed five fours and eight sixes. He was ably supported by Evin Lewis (39 off 14).
Chasing a seemingly stiff target, Riders lost Sunil Narine and Colin Munro inside the first four overs, with the score reading 2-34 at 3.1. But Brendon McCullum and Darren Bravo made a mockery of the target by playing two devastating knocks.
The former new Zealand captain hit five fours and three sixes in a 14-ball knock for his unbeaten 40. But his knock paled in comparison to Bravo's knock. The West Indian hit 38 off just 10 balls, with the help of six sixes.
