Who Will Todays Match : Barbados Royals vs St Kitts, Match Prediction – Today’s winner

On Thursday, August 26, the Barbados Royals and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots will face off in CPL Match #2. The Royals are two-time champions but missed the playoffs last year.

They’ve added a lot of new players and appear to be a powerful team. To forget last season’s anguish, the Patriots are ready to go.

Dwayne Bravo and Sherfane Rutherford have improved their batting and bowling. Chris Gayle’s addition should help their batting order.

Snippets

The CPL 2019 saw several high-scoring games in St Kitts and Nevis. The home team once tracked down 242 Jamaica Tallawahs. The second game looks to be another high-scoring affair.

Avg 1st inning: 182 (5 matches in the CPL 2020 at Warner Park)

Best batter of the game

Clemson Tigers: Evin Lewis

Evin Lewis has been a pillar of the Patriots hitting lineup for years. In 69 CPL games, he has 1787 runs at 27.07 and a 139.60 strike rate. The Southpaw has recently performed well for the West Indies and should be confident.

Best bowler of the game

Hayden Walsh Jr.

Hayden Walsh Jr stole the show in 2019 as he bowled the Royals, then Tridents, to their second CPL title. Walsh Jr made the West Indies national team in 2020, but ineffectively. The leg-spinner has increased in stature and effectiveness since then.
