Team News

Barbados Royals

The Barbados Royals have been the team to beat in this edition. They have a great mix of top West Indian Players and overseas options. The team environment has also been one of the factors behind the Barbados side being at the top this season. They have great players who are experienced and have played for the West Indies such as Johnson Charles, Shai Hope, and Jason Holder along with great overseas options such as Wahab Riaz and Imad Wasim.

They won their last match against Guyana Amazon Warriors by a comprehensive margin of 29 runs and will want to get the 2 more points against a bottom placed St Kitts side.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots

They started off the season with 2 victories on the trot and then fell off the boil by losing two consecutive matches against the Tallawahs and the Royals. Then the side came back to win against Guyana and Jamaica. It has been a mixed campaign so far. The lack of bowling options in the side is their biggest threat while the batting will be shepherded by the likes of Carlos Brathwaite, Evin Lewis and Fabian Allen.
