CPL 2021: SLK vs BR Match Prediction, Match 25. Saint Lucia Kings face off Barbados Royals in the 25th match of the CPL 2021 on Saturday at Warner Park. Both sides haven’t had the best of outings this season. Barbados Royals find themselves at the bottom of the points table, having won only 2 matches out of 8.
They are coming into the contest on the back of a 6-wicket defeat at the hands of Trinbago Knight Riders. After being put in to bat first, Barbados Royals were bundled out for a paltry 93-run total. Spinners spun a web around Barbados as they looked clueless on the slow track.
K Mayers and J Charles started aggressively and added 20 runs in the first two overs. However, Khary Pierre’s introduction in the third over stole Barbados’ momentum as he struck in his very first over. He sent Mayers (24 off 12) back before accounting for the wicket of Smit Patel (0 off 6) in his next over.
Jayden Seales sent Johnson Charles (14 off 19) back into the hut in the 8th over to leave Barbados Royals reeling at 41 for 3. The in-form batsmen in Glenn Philipps (2 off 7) and Azam Khan (17 off 21) too departed cheaply and it didn’t take Knight Riders too long to run through the tail. Barbados Royals set a target of 93 runs, which was never going to be enough.
Mohammad Amir and Joshua Bishop bowled extremely well and picked two wickets each. However, all they did practically was delay the inevitable as Trinbago eventually chased down the total in 16.5 overs. Colin Munro anchored the chase and played right till the end. He played an unbeaten knock of 41 runs off 47 balls, including 4 fours and 1 six.
On the other hand, Saint Lucia Kings are also coming off a defeat at the hands of Jamaica Tallawahs. This was their second consecutive defeat and things could turn awful if they make it three losses in a row. Saint Lucia Kings’ bowlers were hammered all across the part in the last game.
Every bowler went for more than 8 -runs an over as Jamaica notched 211 runs in the first innings. Kennar Lewis set the foundation with a solid 56 off 24 balls, while the middle order too made a substantial contribution. Jeavor Royals and Kadeem Alleyne picked three wickets each but leaked a lot of runs.
Saint Lucia Kings made a blistering start in the second innings. Andre Fletcher scored 30 off 13, while Mark Deyal amassed 33 off 17 balls. However, both of them lost their wickets after getting starts.
Roston Chase, the man in form, also smashed 30 off 17 balls before Carlos Brathwaite accounted for his wicket in the ninth over. Saint Lucia Kings crossed the 100-run mark inside 9 overs, but Roston Chase’s wickets saw a collapse. Saint Lucia Kings eventually were bundled out for 156 runs.
