END OF OVER:
1 | TKR: 5/1

10:37pm What a match. Brathwaite still out there with the home fans, walking around and showing his gratitude as they finish their home leg of the tournament. We'll see you tomorrow. Have a good night!

Carlos: We owe these fans. Three of our wins have come at home. Alzarri was warming up but the guys said it was my night so I backed myself [in the Super Over].

Pollard: Things went pretty well when we batted. Alzarri bowled well after the first 10 overs. 216 I thought was just about par, could have got 20-30 more. It was a great game of cricket. Our boys fought hard. In hindsight I could have bowled the last over, but he [Neesham] did the job for us a couple of nights ago. Yeah he had a bad day but I backed him. I could have maybe backed myself like Carlos here did tonight, but it's part and parcel of the game.

Carlos Brathwaite is the Man of the Match.

10.18pm What a turnaround. Helped along by that Neesham spell, sure, but this is a superb comeback nonetheless. They'd conceded 136 in the first 11 overs, pulled it back in the middle overs and kept it to 216. Were four down halfway through and still managed to stay alive into the last over. When it came, they found some luck, and with the second chance in the Super Over, they completely dominated the best team in the tournament. All that bickering before Brathwaite's over in the dugout is history now. He's almost singlehandedly hauled them to victory tonight. He's leading the victory lap.

Brathwaite to Pollard, no run, straight back to the bowler! Ex captain versus present captain. It's Brathwaite's night tonight. Short of a length outside off, pulled firmly and straight back. He fields the ball and roars as he slams his chest. The home crowd has gone berserk

Brathwaite to Pollard, FOUR runs, Patriots celebrating as this bounces over the midwicket boundary. Length ball on leg stump. Flicks and gets it off the inside half of the bat. Brathwaite doesn't care. Geeing up the crowd, rousing them with both his hands. Pump it up, he's telling them

Brathwaite to Pollard, no run, can't get that away! Surely, that's the win! Brathwaite has found the full length on Pollard's pads from around the wicket. He wants to flick this over midwicket, but that's slammed into his pads

Brathwaite to Simmons, 1 run, lovely. Low full toss at leg stump from around the wicket. No room at all. Heaves at it and gets a thick inside edge out to deep square. Pollard won't push for the second

Brathwaite to Bravo, OUT, given out caught behind! He'd be run out at the other end any way. Length ball wide outside off. Throws his hands at it and gets a thin edge through to the keeper. Pollard has run to the other end. The keeper has lobbed the ball to Brathwaite who has picked the bails out with Bravo nowhere in the picture. But as it stands, Pollard won't get strike because it's out caught

Brathwaite to Bravo, no run, beaten. Full and tailing away wide outside off. Bravo shuffles and swings and is beaten. That's past the wide marker and is not called, perhaps because of the shuffle

Bravo and Pollard walk out. Lendl Simmons also padded up. Carlos Brathwaite will bowl. Doesn't look like the dugout is pleased with that decision. Alzarri has been called over and told by a coach that he should be bowling, although there's no way to confirm that. He shrugs. But some players and pretty much all the coaching staff are not happy with something. Not great signs. It is Brathwaite now, in any case.

END OF OVER:
1 | STKNP: 18/0

A good start and a great finish from Brathwaite there. Ali Khan did so well in the three balls in between, but this is now a stiff target. Knight Riders have to get what Patriots had to get in regulation time - 19 to win off 6. Could be Cottrell who bowls the over. But Alzarri Joseph is also in the mix.

Ali Khan to Brathwaite, FOUR runs, creamed into the straight boundary. Superb hitting from Brathwaite. Ali Khan bowls this one in the slot, narrowly missing on his yorker. Just outside off, front leg out of the way and powered past his partner. Pollard can't stop that to his left, it's too quick

Ali Khan to Brathwaite, SIX runs, sails over deep square! What a shot! Low full toss into the pads, but there's no room at all. He has to get really low to get this away from underneath it. And he manages it before using his wrists to get this square on the leg side

Ali Khan to Brathwaite, no run, beaten. A lovely yorker, in the corridor. Brathwaite has his front leg way out in the leg side to make room, but this yorker is tailing in late and he can't connect on the slog

Ali Khan to Lewis, 1 run, nicely bowled. Yorker length and just outside off. Opens the face and drives this to the sweeper's right. Ali Khan gets in the way very evidently on purpose at the other end as Lewis sets off for the second run. There wasn't a run, but Lewis is not pleased. Pushes him away and is screaming as players and umpires intervene

Ali Khan to Brathwaite, 1 run, down to long-off. Low full toss outside off, can only get it along the floor as he throws the hands at this

Ali Khan to Brathwaite, SIX runs, pumped straight over the bowler! Length ball outside off, Brathwaite is waiting outside off, right behind the line of this. Slams it straight and flat, into the sightscreen

9:55pm Evin Lewis and Carlos Brathwaite will be the first two batsmen. Ali Khan will bowl. Third man, fine leg, point and square leg are in the circle.

END OF OVER:
20 | STKNP: 216/7 (1 run required, RR: 10.80)

9:48pm It's a Super Over now, of course. Patriots will bat...after a toss that TKR win. That knock from Lewis dismantled Neesham earlier in the innings, hitting him for 31, and setting the pace early on. TKR came back from that with four wickets before the 10-over mark, but Brathwaite's brilliant fifty kept his team in it. It was still a tall ask but a swinging, flailing Emrit has done it for Patriots. A superb penultimate over from Ali Khan gave TKR an 18-run cushion, but two edges on either side of the keeper, helped along by the no-ball from Neesham means the match is still alive.

Neesham to Emrit, FOUR runs, it's a tie! A low full toss on off stump. He swings across the line and gets a leading edge that flies past short third man! Can you believe it. Hands on hips from Neesham and all he can do is smile. It's gone wrong for him in every way possible

A boundary ties this. If they could pick one bowler tonight to be bowling this ball, Patriots would have chosen Neesham. Can he hold them down?

Neesham to Emrit, 2 runs, full ball at the stumps, backs away and drives along the floor to long-off's right. Lazy effort there, really. They take an easy second

Neesham to Emrit, 2 runs, thick inside edge to deep square's right. Full ball in at the stumps and he can't get better connection on the slog

Neesham to Emrit, 3 no ball, oh Neesham, Neesham. There's no end to his horror night. First, a beamer outside off. Emrit misses on the cut but is disoriented. His partner is running, he's not. Ramdin lobs it up to the non-striker's and Neesham can't gather the ball. Gives away another run and Emrit retains the strike for the free-hit

Neesham to Joseph, 1 run, nicely bowled. It's been three good balls this over. Yorker again at leg stump. Inside edge onto the pad and out into the off side

Neesham to Joseph, FOUR runs, inside edge into the fine leg boundary! Mails the yorker after following him down leg side. Looks to drill into the leg side and gets it between keeper and short fine
