But Drax and Cottrell kept the game alive with some fine strikes. When Cottrell lost Jason Holder, the Patriots needed 28 off 12 balls.

Bravo makes great slow deliveries :-

Paul van Meeckeren proved particularly difficult with his extra bounce while Bravo made some excellent slow deliveries. But Patel’s misconduct paid off in the 15th over when Drake was hit for three fours. One came from the inside edge but he also made a great drive and a reverse scoop.

Patel fell to Bravo in the 17th over, but the Royals made 60 off the final 36 balls, with Holder and Young clearing the rope three times between them in crucial cameos.

Had Holder not been run out by being hit from straight cover by Naseem, and in the end.
