SNP vs BR Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Aug 26, 2023

The Patriots haven’t had the best start to the Caribbean Premier League in 2023, with one loss and two games abandoned. However, the Royals also haven’t had much luck, as they’ve had one abandoned game and one loss. With only six teams in the CPL, there’s always a chance to reach the Final even without an amazing record.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs. Barbados Royals will take place at Warner Park, Basseterre, St Kitts, on August 26th. Continue checking the OCB homepage for all the latest info on betting and games.

SNP vs BR Team Previews

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots

The Patriots will be hoping for a better season, as they finished in 5th place last season. Fletcher (229 runs in 2022), Rutherford (151), and Lewis (133) will again be the team’s most vital batters, but also keep an eye on new additions like Da Silva (46 runs in 2023) and Drakes (35 runs). Fletcher has had a bit of a slow start this season with just 24 runs, but he should pick up the pace.

The bowling has taken a bit of a step back, as Bravo (10 wickets in 2022),Dananjaya (6 wickets), and Pretorius (6 wickets) have all left the Patriots. Bravo, especially, is hard to replace, but Thomas (4/63 in 2023) and Drakes (3/71) have both had decent starts this year and should be enough of a threat to opposing batters.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Playing 11

Andre Fletcher, Evin Lewis, Joshua Da Silva, Ambati Rayudu, Sherfane Rutherford, Dominic Drakes, Jyd Goolie, Corbin Bosch, Izharulhaq Naveed, Ashmead Nedd, Oshane Thomas.

Barbados Royals

The Royals are still looking for redemption after losing the CPL Final to the Tallawahs last season. Still, keeping Mayers is good news (366 runs in 2022), as well as Cornwall (242) and Holder (155). The addition of Powell (281 runs) is big, as he was a major part of the winning Jamaica squad last season.

There wasn’t much to be excited about in the first game, as Cornwall, Greaves, and Powell all had ducks, while Mayers (16 runs) and Wickham (10 runs) were also fairly disappointing. Young’s 48 runs aren’t likely to continue, as he’s usually in the team for bowling.

With the bowling, Ahmad is a great new player to the team, as he already took 2/35 this year. Holder is the certainly the most important bowler to the team, as he had 17 wickets last year and already picked up 4/38 in his first game. Mayers and McCoy will have to help a lot this year, too, as Bishop especially was a major part of the squad with 15 wickets.

SNP vs BR Betting Tips

Right now, the Satbet odds are practically the same for each team to win, although slightly better for the Royals. The Royals have a small advantage as they’ve won the last two times against the Patriots. It’s difficult to say which team is better in 2023, as we haven’t had the chance to see them play much, but we like the Royals in this game. Big names like Holder, Mayers, and Powell are hard to ignore, and it feels like the Patriots are still figuring out their new roster.

Bet on the Barbados Royals to win.

Bonus Cricket Bets

  1. Bet365


    St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Top Batter: Joshua Da Silva



Da Silva has been impressive this season with 46 runs, and those are some really good odds. It's worth taking a chance, as the 2023 season is still quite new and he could catch a few bowlers by surprise.

  1. Dafabet


    Kyle Mayers To Score 50: Yes



Mayers to score a 50 is a good bet, as he averaged 30.50 last season and totalled 366 runs. He had 3 half-centuries last year, so it's not unreasonable that he could pick up one again.
