Barbados Royals have cemented their position in the points table with their recent win. Royals have 14 points from 8 matches so far in CPL 2022 and now no other team can topple them from the number 1 spot.
With their key bowlers going for over 10 r.p.o in their last match, St Kitts & Nevis Patriots ended up conceding 189 runs after opting to bowl first.
While most teams bowling first have had an advantage this season, the Patriots lost while chasing a target in two of their last three matches. Dewald Brewis, who was promoted to number 3 in the last match is a positive for SNP going into this match.
The 19-year-old right-handed batsman from South Africa hit 3 sixes and 1 four to score 32 runs off 19 balls at number 3. For Barbados Royals, on the other hand, the bowlers are the big positive to take from their last match where the performance wasn’t as expected.
In a rain-affected match, Barbados Royals lost early wickets with two of their middle-order batters dismissed for a duck. The table-toppers had set a target of 108 runs from 16 overs for Guyana. It was Mujeeb Ur Rahman’s 1 for 4 from 4 overs that added a lot of pressure on the Warriors in the run chase. Cornwall, McCoy, and Simmonds also picked 2 wickets each to ensure Guyana Amazon Warriors were never into the game.
The consistency of the bowlers and the variety in this bowling attack give Miller an edge over the opposition. David Miller’s presence in the lower order is also very crucial when it comes to finishing the game.
There are many experienced match-winning players in the Barbados Royals camp. From Jason Holder and David Miller to Kyle Mayers and Rahkeem Cornwall, the Royals have many reliable impact players. There have been a few collapses in the batting order lately. Corbin Bosch and Quinton de Kock will be responsible for striking a partnership in the middle order.
Royals have 7 batsmen in their lineup with Holder, Azam Khan, and David Miller at 5, 6, and 7 in the batting order. There is great firepower in the Barbados batting department and will be a force to reckon with for the desperate Patriots.

Dwayne Bravo will lead his troops in a must-win game against the most successful team of CPL 2022. The Patriots have lost two of their last three matches while chasing a target which is not a good sign going into this match. Except for the last game where the key bowlers were expensive in their spells, the bowling attack is the biggest positive for St Kitts & Nevis Patriots.
There is good variety in the bowling department and the key players like Rashid Khan, DJ Bravo, and Dwaine Pretorius deliver breakthroughs consistently. They will have a big task on their hands when they take on the mighty Barbados Royals. The opposition’s recent form with the bat can be a positive for SNP and if Rashid, Pretorius, and Bravo are on their best day, they are most likely to put the Royals on the backfoot.
Even with some of the most experienced Windies T20 batters in the lineup, SNP haven’t managed to perform well in the batting department. Evin Lewis and Andre Fletcher are the most impactful T20 openers in the world. If these two can get the team off to a flying start, Darren Bravo, Dewal Brevis, and Sherfane Rutherford can all chip in together and propel the Patriots to a very competitive total.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected on the match day in Guyana with a high of 31 degrees Celsius. It is a slow pitch at the Providence Stadium which offers assistance to spinners.
The average 1st innings score at the Providence Stadium in Guyana is 141 runs. Overall, there have been 32 domestic T20 matches played at this venue and of those on 20 occasions, teams have scored below 150.
Teams have preferred bowling first at this venue given the slowness of the pitch. Though chasing at this ground is equally challenging, teams batting second have won 20 of the 32 domestic T20 matches. However, given the weather forecast, the team batting first could have an advantage as the DLS is likely to come into the picture if there is a rain interruption.
A slow wicket in Guyana will pose a tough challenge to both teams as their batsmen are already struggling to find a rhythm. Whereas, the spinners on both teams will be eager to find success. Rashid Khan and Akila Dananjaya will be the ones to watch out for in the Patriots camp while Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Rahkeem Cornwall, and Hayden Walsh can offer 12 overs of spin together for the Royals.
It will be a close contest and the Barbados Royals will start with an edge given the overall balance they have in their playing XI.
