BR vs SLK Team Previews

Barbados Royals

The Barbados Royals have been a bit inconsistent so far. With half of the group stage already behind us, the Royals have 2 wins, 2 losses, and an abandoned match against their name. With 5 points, they are currently 5th on the points table. Albeit, the inclement weather has forced many teams to share points, which means the top 5 teams are separated by just 1 point.

The opening pair of Rahkeem Cornwall and Kyle Mayers hasn’t been in the best of forms this season and averages under 15.00 after 4 matches. Laurie Evans, who comes in at number 3, got a good start in the last match, and we expect him to play well going forward.

The bulk of the scoring for the Royals so far has been done by Alick Athanaze and Rovman Powell. The former is the leading run-scorer for the team this season. Coming to the bowling, Jason Holder and Qais Ahmed are among the top wicket-takers of this tournament.

However, they have received little support from the other bowlers as the likes of Obed McCoy, Nyeem Young, and Roelof van der Merwe haven’t been able to reign in the opposition batsmen.

St Lucia Kings

The St. Lucia Kings have won 2 of their three completed matches and are currently at the top of the points table with a narrow 1-point lead. They have won their last two matches and will look to continue with the winning momentum.

Faf du Plessis and Johnson Charles make up for an excellent opening pair and will look to give the Kings a brisk start in this match. Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Sean Williams add stability to the middle order, while all-rounders Roston Chase, Roshon Primus, and Sikandar Raza add depth to the batting.

Chase is the leading wicket-taker for the Kings with 6 wickets and has also scored 68 runs. He will have the support of Peter Hatzoglou and Khary Pierre at the other end. The pace attack is a bit lacking though as Alzarri Joseph is the lone quality seamer.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at Barbados is well-balanced. There is very little grass on the surface and the ball does hold up a bit when it bounces, taking off some of the pace. The quicker bowlers will need to be spot-on with their line and length. Anything over 170 will be difficult to chase down. The spinners will enjoy bowling here.

The weather is expected to be warm and humid with temperatures of around 30 degrees Celsius. 


BR vs SLK Betting Tips

The Barbados Royals have enjoyed the upper hand against St. Lucia Kings. However, looking at the way the latter team has played this season, we feel that the visitors have a slight edge in this contest. Their batsmen have done a better job and the spin department is particularly strong, which can be a boon on this pitch.

Bet on the St. Lucia Kings to win.
