Barbados Royals will square up against St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the second game of the CPL 2021 on Friday. Both finished at the bottom half of the table last year. In fact, they acquired the bottom two spots and one could think how bad they performed last year. The Royals won three games, while the Nevis Patriots could only manage to win a solitary win.
Ahead of a new season, both teams have acquired some new faces to strengthen their squads. Barbados have acquired the services of Glenn Phillips, who was brilliant last year. He finished as the second-highest run-getter with 316 runs in 11 matches at an average of close to 40.
Kyle Mayers was the star performer with the bat for them last season, amassing 222 runs in 9 games at an average of 24. Hayden Walsh is Royal’s second notable inclusion, who could turn the fortunes for them this season. He has a forgettable season last year but could turn out to be Royal’s trump card. Besides, Oshane Thomas’ inclusion would certainly make them a team to beat.
St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots have also made some notable inclusions in the squad. The inclusion of Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo has come as a major boost in the team. Besides.
Fawad Ahmed and Fabien Allien should make a great spin-bowling combination, while Gayle and Ewin Lewis will make a solid opening combination. Sheldon Cottrell will lead the fast bowling department.
