St Lucia Kings
The Saint Lucia Kings have lost their last two games and are losing form at an inopportune moment in the CPL 2021. They must regain their winning ways and make the most of their last two matches against the Barbados Royals.
The Kings struggled with their bowling in the last game and may wish to return to some tried and tested players. It made no sense to us not to play Obed McCoy and Wahab Riaz in the last match, and it ended up generating a lot of difficulties for the Kings.
On some times, the Kings batted wonderfully, but on others, they batted horribly. While Andre Fletcher, Tim David, and Roston Chase are in fine form, Faf du Plessis has only one spectacular century to his name among a run of poor scores.
St Lucia Kings Squad
Andre Fletcher(w), Faf du Plessis(c), Mark Deyal, Roston Chase, Samit Patel, Tim David, David Wiese, Kadeem Alleyne, Alzarri Joseph, Jeavor Royal, Kesrick Williams, Javelle Glenn, Wahab Riaz, Rahkeem Cornwall, Keron Cottoy, Keemo Paul, Obed McCoy
The Barbados Royals were devastated by the Trinbago Knight Riders in their previous encounter and would be eager to move on. Poor planning, inefficient use of resources, and erratic results have been the trademarks of the Barbados Royals in CPL 2021.
They were put through a rigorous test by spin in the last encounter, and that is unlikely to happen again against the Saint Lucia Kings. Azam Khan, Johnson Charles, and Glenn Phillips have been the Royals’ three top batters this season. They’ve all scored 170 runs or more with some solid knocks over the fence, but the big hits haven’t come their way.
The Royals’ bowling is also not where they would like it to be. It remains to be seen if Mohammad Amir will be used in this match, although Raymon Reifer is the current captain of the bowling attack. The Barbados Royals are being held back by a lot of similar medium-paced bowlers and a lack of strong spinners in the lineup.
Barbados Royals Squad
Kyle Mayers, Johnson Charles, Smit Patel(w), Raymon Reifer, Glenn Phillips, Azam Khan, Jason Holder(c), Nyeem Young, Joshua Bishop, Jake Lintott, Mohammad Amir, Ashley Nurse, Justin Greaves, Thisara Perera, Shai Hope, Oshane Thomas, Hayden Walsh
The team that wins the toss will choose to bat first. The side that batted first has won five of the past six CPL 2021 matches. It should be seen as a significant benefit.
Pitch and Weather Conditions
After a string of beautiful days throughout the CPL, the weather appears to be cooling down a bit. We still expect a complete match, although there is a greater possibility of rain than in recent weeks. The pitch is sluggish and low, making scoring difficult.
Teams have found it difficult to target the spinners, and this is unlikely to alter. The tiny boundaries keep the big-hitters engaged, although this edition of the CPL has been lower scoring than previous editions.
We believe the Saint Lucia Kings will be able to win this match. They not only have the desire to field their best squad in order to win and qualify for the playoffs, but they have also been considerably more consistent throughout the season.
Both teams’ recent form has been poor, but the caliber of players in the Saint Lucia Kings camp will help them to recover faster.
Saint Lucia Kings is the favourite to win this match.
JAMAICA TALLAWAHS VS GUYANA AMAZON WARRIORS – 26TH MATCH
The last two group matches will be played between the Jamaica Tallawahs and the Guyana Amazon Warriors. They are both vying for a spot in the CPL 2021 Semi-Finals, thus these will be two high-pressure matchups.
The Jamaica Tallawahs have won their last two matches and appear to be on the mend after a shaky start to the season. This season, the Guyana Amazon Warriors have been highly inconsistent, failing to win two consecutive matches. On September 11, 2021, the match will be held at Warner Park in Basseterre, St. Kitts.

The Jamaica Tallawahs batted well in their last two games, but they could have to work harder against the Guyana Amazon Warriors. We say this because the Jamaica Tallawahs struggled against TKR’s spinners, and the Guyana Amazon Warriors also have a strong group of slow bowlers.
The Tallawahs’ greatest strength has been their power hitting. This season, Kennar Lewis and Andre Russell are both in the top four on the six-hitting list. With Imad Wasim, Rovman Powell, Haider Ali, and Carlos Brathwaite in the playing eleven, there is also a lot of depth in the batting order.
Imad Wasim has also contributed significantly to the bowling assault. He took three wickets in the last encounter and appears to be the type of bowler who can take advantage of the slow surface. This season, Miguel Pretorius has been outstanding, and Andre Russell has continued to pick up wickets.

Guyana Amazon Warriors
This season, the Guyana Amazon Warriors have missed expectations. That does not make them a terrible club, but it does mean that we cannot simply look at their lineup’s strength and hope for the best. The Warriors have been extremely erratic, making it impossible to predict what to expect from them in each encounter.
Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, and Brandon King are among the names in their batting order. One of the most difficult issues has been putting the players in the proper batting order. In the last encounter, Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez appeared to be out of place, but if they go up the lineup, Brandon King or Hetmyer will have to shift out of their favoured positions.
Imran Tahir is the secret to the Warriors’ success among the bowlers. We would definitely check at betting markets to bet on Tahir doing well because the surface appears to be designed for him. Romario Shepheard is the Warriors’ other bowler who has made an impression. Don’t overlook Odean Smith’s all-round abilities, as he can hit a long ball and bowl at a good pace.
Guyana Amazon Squad
Nicholas Pooran (c), Imran Tahir, Shimron Hetmyer, Brandon King, Romario Shepherd, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Odean Smith, Anthony Bramble, Kevin Sinclair, Ashmead Nedd, Waqar Salamkheil, Nial Smith, Gudakesh Motie, Imran Tahir, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Waqar Salamkheil, Naveen-ul-Haq
The team that wins the toss will choose to bat first. The side that batted first has won five out of the past six CPL matches. This will be the second match of the day, thus the benefit of batting first will be much greater.
Pitch and Weather Conditions
On match day, the weather is anticipated to be pleasant. The pitch will be utilized for this match because it is the second of the day. This implies that spinners will receive more support from the surface, and scoring runs may be a little tougher than we’ve seen thus far.
We’re going to put money on the Jamaica Tallawahs to win this game. We believe they have a better grasp of their squad and are peaking at the appropriate moment. They have more power in their lineup, and their bowling assault is also functioning admirably.
Jamaica Tallawahs is the favourite to win this match.
