Patriots penalised for slow over rate against Knight Riders

St Kitts & Nevis Patriots were charged with a breach of Article 2.5 of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Code of Conduct – Minimum Over Rate Offences – at the end of Match 1 against the Trinbago Knight Riders on Wednesday at the Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain. 

The charge of being one over down was laid by the match officials team against the captain of the Patriots, Carlos Brathwaite, who accepted the charge.

The applicable monetary fine was imposed on the captain, and the Patriots team was penalised with a 0.05 reduction in their Net Run Rate. 

First started in 2013, the CPL is a franchise-based T20 format cricket tournament that combines two of the most compelling aspects of Caribbean life – dramatic cricket and a vibrant Carnival atmosphere. 

Trinbago Knight Riders are the current Hero CPL champions.
