St Lucia Kings

The St Lucia Kings will be led by Sikandar Raza in this match-up. The side will be keen to put behind a terrible performance in their last game with both bat and ball.

The top order of St Lucia Kings will be in the hands of batters such as Johnson Charles and Colin Munro.

The skipper will expect his team members to continue all their good work and build momentum for this game.

Alex Hales was in prime form with the bat in his last match. He hit an electrifying hundred to take the team score past the 200-run mark. He will be keen to provide another good start to the Jamaican innings with Brandon King. The Jamaican team will require a good showing from players such as Steven Taylor, Imad Wasim, and Shamarh Brooks in their middle order.

SLK vs JT Toss Prediction

We have seen both the last games played in CPL 2023 to have been won by the team batting first and these were big victories. The pitch slows down when we enter the second half of the match. This makes the run-chases tough for the teams batting second. So, the skipper winning the toss will be looking to take advantage of the ground conditions by batting 1st on this track.

Pitch and Conditions

This game will be played at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. It is certainly one of the better T20 wickets in the Caribbean. The surface will offer help for both bowlers and batters. The speedsters can bowl quickly on the surface to extract pace and bounce from it. But this advantage is countered by shorter boundaries. Spinners will also get their opportunities to do well, especially in the second half of the game. Generally speaking, this appears to be a good surface to bat on and the batters can play their strokes freely. Any team batting first will have to score 180 runs to feel safe here. It is expected that we will get clear skies over the island of Guyana on 20th September.
