Caribbean T20 League

Match 2- SLK vs BAR

 

Preview

The Caribbean action continues as Saint Lucia Kings cross swords with Barbados Royals for the 2nd match of the Caribbean T20 League 2023. The game is scheduled to be played on Daren Sammy National Cricket at Saint Lucia on Friday, 18th August. 

BAR finished their last season on the top of the points table with eight wins in ten matches accumulating 16 points under their belt before losing to Jamaica Tallawahs in the final match by 8 wickets.

Having tasted a defeat in the final game of the previous season, Barbados would now be on full throttle to get a positive start this season. On the other side, Saint Lucia previously got knocked out in the Eliminator of the 2022 edition of the game. Also being defeated in the inaugural match of the season by the defending champions JAM, they look forward to working on their mistakes and coming back stronger in the second game.

Match Prediction

Looking forward to a firecracker encounter, we prefer BAR over SLK as the last season’s runners-up are quite strong on pen and paper. The Barbados side knows their task and performs as a collective unit. Thus we fancy BAR over SLK in spite of the Saint Lucia side having played one game in their home stadium already.
