BASSETERRE---St Kitts and Nevis Patriots used a
three-wicket burst from seamer Carlos Brathwaite,
to beat St Lucia Zouks by 26 runs in the Caribbean
Premier League in St Kitts, Friday night.
Defending 170 for eight off 20 overs, Patriots held
Zouks to 144 for nine at Warner Park, with right-
armer Brathwaite picking up three for 38 from his
Andre Fletcher hammered an aggressive 59 off 43
balls with four fours and three sixes as Zouks looked
in good shape at 69 for one in the eighth over.
But they lost eight wickets for 75 runs as Brathwaite
and leg-spinner Shahid Afridi, with two for 20,
destroyed the innings as
Zouks declined badly.
innings was propelled by
a top score by Man-of-
Dowrich who top-scored
with 38 off 20 balls while
New Zealander Martin
Guptill hit 35 from 30
Devon Smith hit 25
from 16 balls while Ray-
mon Reifer chimed in
with a cameo unbeaten
20 from just seven deliv-
eries at the death.
McCullum was the best
bowler with four for 22.
Left-hander Evin Lewis perished early for three in
the third over with the score on 12 for one when he
edged a big drive off speedster Shannon Gabriel to
Johnson Charles at second slip.
Dowrich then struck five fours and two sixes and
Guptill, six fours, as they put on 54 for the second
wicket to revive the innings.
McCullum then made key strikes including the
wickets of Dowrich and captain Marlon Samuels (5)
as Patriots lost four wickets for 34 runs to decline to
100 for five in the 13th over.
However, Thomas and Reifer then both smashed
a four and two sixes in quick-fire knocks to give
Patriots impetus at the end.
In reply, Zouks were carried early on by Fletcher
who made up for Charles struggles at the other end.
They eventually lost Charles after an eight-ball battle
over seven, skying a catch to substitute Justin Athanaze
at mid-on off left-arm seamer Sohail Tanvir in the
fifth over with the score on 49.
Much was required from captain Kevin Pietersen
but little came as he holed out to long-off off Afridi
for 12 in the eighth over and the dangerous Ross Taylor
made just three before cutting Brathwaite into Samuels s
safe hands at backward point at 76 for three in the
Fletcher s demise, caught at long-on off left-arm
spinner Jomel Warrican in the 13th over, marked the
end of Zouks resistance. CMC
Brathwaite fires Patriots
to handsome win
FOXBOROUGH---Haiti remained win-
less at the CONCACAF Gold Cup
when they crashed to a 1-0 loss to the
United States in their second Group
A game here Friday night.
Playing at the Gillette Stadium, the
French Caribbean side were done in
by a 47th minute strike from Clint
Dempsey, to remain on one point in
the group following their draw with
Panama last Tuesday in Frisco, Texas.
The result saw the US qualify for
the second round with one game
remaining while Panama, who drew 1-
1 with Honduras in the night s other
game, lie second on two points.
Both Panama and Haiti have one
point. Ironically, Haiti dominated the
first half, creating several opportunities
but failing to convert any.
Mechak Jerome struck the crossbar
with a free kick early on and Wilde-
Donald Guerrier, who tormented the
US defence, twice came close with
However, Haiti paid the price for
their wastefulness two minutes after
half-time when LA Galaxy star Gyasi
Zardes teed up Dempsey at the top of
the penalty area, and the veteran striker
made little mistake with a clinical strike.
Duckens Nazon, who scored the
equalizer in the 1-1 draw with Panama
on Tuesday, almost equalised ten min-
utes later this initial shot was blocked
by goalkeeper Brad Guzan and his
rebound went wide.
In the preceding game, Luis Tejada
put Panama ahead in the 21st minute
for a 1-0 lead at half-time but Andy
Najar struck nine minutes from the
end to earn Honduras a point. CMC
