CPL 2021, Saint Lucia Kings vs Barbados Royals: Saint Lucia Kings will come into a face-off with Barbados Royals in Match No 25 of the CPL 2021 at Warner Park in St Kitts on Saturday.
Saint Lucia Kings have lost two CPL matches in a row. After facing a loss against Guyana they suffered a big defeat against the Jamaica Tallawahs. Chasing a target of 212 the Kings fell short of 55 urns. Jeavor Royal and Kadeem Alleyne led the bowling attack but couldn’t restrict Tallawahs from scoring big. Roston Chase and Mark Deyal got good start but none of them could play the one big innings that the Kings needed to win the CPL match against Jamaica.
With four wins & four losses in their kitty, the Saint Lucia Kings have now dropped to fourth spot in the CPL 2021 Points Table. With just two matches left for the Playoffs, the Saint Lucia Kings will aim to win both the games to keep themselves in the run of top four. Consecutive victories will help them to continue their winning momentum in the playoff stages of CPL 2021 as well.
On the other hand, the Barbados Royals haven’t had the best of CPL campaigns this season. They are languishing at the bottom of the Points table. After winning the clash against Guyana they lost the clash against defending Champions Trinbago Knight Riders. Royals could score just 93 runs after batting first while the Knight Riders got over the line with six wickets to spare.
Meanwhile Jason Holder failed to carry his team as a unit in the CPL 2021. Their batting has been inconsistent throughput the season which has resulted in their losses in the CPL 2021. This match is a must win game for Saint Lucia Kings while Barbados royals look out of the race to make it to the top four. And they would aim to win today’s clash to add some points to CPL 2021 Points table & end the CPL 2021 on a good note.
