Barbados Royals have been part of three fixtures in the tournament as of now and their one match was abandoned because of rains. The team started their CPL 2023 campaign with a loss against St Lucia Kings but made a huge comeback against Saint Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The Royals have shown a good performance with their bat but the bowlers are struggling to control the match. Rovman Powell, Rahkeem Cornwell, Kyle Mayers, and Jason Holder are the key players for the team.
Skipper Rovman Powell will be expecting a better performance from his bowlers.
Predicted Lineup: Rahkeem Cornwall, Kyle Mayers, Alick Athanaze, Justin Greaves, Kevin Wickham (wk), Rovman Powell (c), Jason Holder, Roelof van der Merwe, Nyeem Young, Qais Ahmad, Obed McCoy
Jamaica Tallawahs are coming to play against the Royals after witnessing a defeat in their previous fixture against Amazon Warriors. The bowlers completely failed to take control of the situation and displayed a higher run rate. Mohammad Amir picked up 3 wickets and Chris Green ended up with two. The opening lineup completely failed to give a good start to the team and hence the pressure of scoring runs came on the middle order. Imad Wasim scored 63 off 36 and Fabian Allen scored 47 off 25 but it was too late and the team failed to complete the chase.
Mohammad Amir, Fabian Allen, and Imad Wasim are the key players for the Tallawahs.
Predicted Lineup: Amir Jangoo, Kirk McKenzie, Brandon King, Chris Green, Imad Wasim, Fabian Allen, Shamarh Brooks, Mohammad Amir, Hayden Walsh, Raymon Reifer, Salman Irshad
We are in for an absolute thriller as both teams are evenly matched. They both have displayed a major weakness in their bowling department. However, Tallawahs are struggling with the inconsistency of their opening lineup and hence we predict a win for Barbados Royals on Friday.
