Dwayne Bravo led from the front with a four-wicket haul following which the batsmen led by Denesh Ramdin helped Trinbago Knight Riders chase down 138 comfortably with eight wickets in hand against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the 29th match of the Caribbean Premier League in Lauderhill.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots won the toss and elected to bat first. Kieran Powell (23) gave a perfect start for the Patriots as he smashed Ronsford Beaton (0-35) for a couple of boundaries and a six in the second over.

However, things went haywire for the Patriots as they lost Evin Lewis (1), Faf du Plessis (0) and Powell in a span of seven deliveries and were restricted to 37 for three at the end of powerplay.

The pair of Lendl Simmons (60 not out) and Jonathan Carter (23) added 44 runs for the fourth wicket to provide some respite but Sunil Narine (1-9) had the latter stumped in the 12th over.

With a couple of sixes in the 17th over, Simmons reached his fifty off 30 deliveries but in the last three overs, the Patriots managed only 17 runs, finishing their innings at 137 for six.

In the chase, Trinbago Knight Riders lost Hashim Amla (6) early but Denesh Ramdin (52 not out) and William Perkins (29) scored seven boundaries and a six combined to take the total to 48 for one after the first six overs.

Carter (1-30) had Perkins caught at cover in the eighth over ending the 58-run stand. By the halfway mark, the Patriots needed 64 more runs to win.

That's when Brendon McCullum (43 not out) joined Ramdin and added unbeaten 74 runs off just 54 deliveries to complete the chase in 17 overs.

Trinbago Knight Riders have finished the group stage with 10 points following the eight-wicket win while St Kitts and Nevis Patriots' nightmare of the tournament ended with their eighth defeat.
