What to expect:
Saint Lucia Kings: Faf du Plessis’ side had gone down against Jamaica Tallawahs in the Eliminator game last year. The side would look to put this behind them and focus on a good start. They play at their home and shall have the crowds cheering for them. The Kings’ skipper would like to see a good show from his senior players.
Faf du Plessis has a lot of experience and will look to deliver a good start in this game along with the hard-hitting Johnson Charles. Kimani Milues, Roston Chase, and Sikandar Raza are good players and have an important role in the middle order. The side will also look for sins from Jeavor Royal, Roshon Primus, and Matthew Forde toward the end of the innings.
Alzarri Joseph and Chris Sole must strike early, as the Tallawahs have a strong top order. Peter Hatzoglou had shown good promise last season and has an important role in the middle overs with Jeavor Royal. Sikandar Raza, Roshon Primus, and Forde must do well in the supporting role.
Saint Lucia Kings Key Players
- Faf du Plessis – The captain and opener will be keen to deliver in this game after returning the lowest score of all of Saint Lucia Kings’ top four in Match 1.
- Roston Chase – The all-rounder has been underrated by many throughout his career but produced an excellent display against the Tallawahs with 3-39 with the ball before hitting 53 runs.
- Alzarri Joseph – The West Indies international got off to a strong start in this year’s CPL with the wickets of Amir Jangoo and Chris Green on Wednesday evening.
Probable XI: Johnson Charles(w), Faf du Plessis(c), Sean Williams, Roston Chase, Sikandar Raza, Kimani Melius, Roshon Primus, Matthew Forde, Alzarri Joseph, Peter Hatzoglou, Chris Sole
Saint Lucia Kings Squad: Faf du Plessis(c), Leonardo Julien, Kimani Melius, Dasun Shanaka, Sikandar Raza, Roshon Primus, Matthew Forde, Sean Williams, Roston Chase, Jeavor Royal, Sadrack Descartes, Johnson Charles, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Alzarri Joseph, Jair McAllister, Peter Hatzoglou, Khary Pierre, McKenny Clarke, Chris Sole
Barbados Royals: Batter Laurie Evans from England and Afghanistan leg-spinner Qais Ahmad have joined the Royals squad. Evans is effectively a replacement for South African batsman Rassie van der Dussen, who withdrew recently. The blow of van der Dussen’s absence has been softened by the recruitment of the enterprising Evans.
Leg-spinners have had a lot of success in domestic T20 cricket. Rashid Khan is the shining light in this example, but fellow Afghanistan international Ahmad offers plenty of promise. He’ll need to offer several variations against an opposition batting order that will look to capitalize against predictability.
The Royals also have Jason Holder. The former West Indies captain did not get to bat much in the recent T20I series against India but remained characteristically on point with the ball throughout. He will likely be deployed with the ball inside the opening powerplay and through the closing throes of the innings.
Barbados Royals Key Players
- Kyle Mayers – The left-handed batting all-rounder opens the batting and is one of the most powerful strikers of the ball in West Indian cricket.
- Alick Athanaze – The 24-year-old all-rounder has made his ODI and Test debuts over the last couple of months and showed himself to be a very talented cricketer.
- Obed McCoy – The tall left-arm pace bowler will enjoy bowling on this hard surface and will get plenty of bounce to trouble Saint Lucia Kings’ batters.
Probable XI: Kyle Mayers, Rahkeem Cornwall, Alick Athanaze, Rovman Powell (c), Jason Holder, Donovan Ferreira, Justin Greaves, Rivaldo Clarke, Obed McCoy, Qais Ahmad, Mahesh Theekshana
Barbados Royals Squad: Rahkeem Cornwall, Kyle Mayers, Alick Athanaze, Rovman Powell(c), Donavon Ferreira(w), Justin Greaves, Jason Holder, Obed McCoy, Qais Ahmad, Nyeem Young, Ramon Simmonds, Joshua Bishop, Akeem Jordan, Kevin Wickham, Rivaldo Clarke
