The Barbados Royals will take on the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the second match of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021. The day-night game will be played at the Warner Park in Basseterre, St Kitts.

The Barbados Tridents were renamed the Barbados Royals after the Rajasthan Royals acquired a majority stake in the franchise. The Barbados franchise has been one of the most successful teams in the competition’s history. They have reached the final three times, winning the title twice. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, meanwhile, have never made it to the CPL final.

Jason Holder will lead the Barbados Royals in CPL 2021. The team has a decent mix of experienced and young players. They also have several overseas players who have starred in T20 leagues all over the world.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, meanwhile, have a formidable squad. DJ Bravo has been traded to the side and the inclusion of ‘Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle makes them the clear favourites in the CPL. Rayad Emrit’s side have some power hitters in their ranks too.

Match Details

Match: Barbados Royals vs St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, Caribbean Premier League 2021.

Date and Time: August 27, 2021, Friday, 04:30 AM IST.

Venue: Warner Park, Basseterre, St Kitts.


Weather Report

The temperature in St Kitts will be on the higher side, ranging between 25 and 28 degree Celsius. There is no chance of rain, so expect a full game to be played on Thursday. It is expected to stay humid throughout the day.


Pitch Report

The pitch at the Warner Park is a belter. Batsmen usually have a field day on this surface, so the bowlers will need to be on their toes to stop the opposition from scoring big. The surface will be good for batting under lights, so a high-scoring game could ensue.


Predicted Playing XIs

Barbados Royals

The Barbados Royals are a well-balanced side. Experienced players will need to step up for the team to succeed, though. The Royals will hope to reach the playoffs in CPL 2021.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots

Playing XI: Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Sherfane Rutherford, Ravi Bopara, Asif Ali, Dwayne Bravo, Devon Thomas (wk), Fabian Allen, Rayad Emrit (c), Sheldon Cottrell, Fawad Ahmed.


Match Prediction

The two heavyweights should produce a cracking contest. A number of experienced players will feature in the game, so it could come down to handling pressure in crunch situations.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are well-balanced, so expect them to finish on top against the Barbados Royals on Thursday.
