Birmingham Bears batter Carlos Brathwaite retired out during his team’s T20 Blast match against Nottinghamshire before Samit Patel also followed in his footsteps in the second innings.

The 20-over game was cut down to eight overs an innings due to rain with the Bears batting first. They piled up 98 runs on the board courtesy of Chris Benjamin’s quick-fire 17-ball 36.

During the innings, Brathwaite, who walked in to bat in the 5th over, scored an 11-ball 17 before retiring out. He was replaced by Sam Hain who couldn’t face a delivery.

In the run chase, Nottinghamshire lost Joe Clarke early but a 55-run stand between Ben Duckett and Alex Hales put the chase back on track. Things got too steep in the end with 15 runs needed off the last over.

Samit came to bat in the final over but walked off after scoring 2 runs in 2 balls. Unfortunately, the move didn’t affect the game in the end as Nottinghamshire fell short by one run, leading the Bears to move to the second spot on the points table in the North Group.
