Bottom-placed Barbados Royals (BR) take on semi-final hopefuls Saint Lucia Kings (SLK) in match 28 of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021. With just two wins from nine games, Barbados Royals are out of top-four contention and will finish last in the points table. Jason Holder and co will be hoping to end their campaign on a high note.
The 14-run victory over Barbados Royals helped Saint Lucia Kings take a giant step towards the semi-final. They have a two-point lead over fifth-placed Jamaica Tallawahs and need to pick up a win to seal a berth in the last four. If Saint Lucia Kings suffer a defeat tonight, the Saint Lucia-based franchise will need a favor from Guyana Amazon Warriors, who squares off against Jamaica Tallawahs in the penultimate match of the CPL 2021 league stage.
