What's the match?

Barbados Royals take on St Lucia Kings in the 2022 Caribbean Premier League.

When is it taking place?

The match is scheduled to take place at 10am local time (GMT-5) on Sunday, September 4.

Where is the match being played?

This game is due to be staged at Warner Park on St Kitts. 

Who's got the form?

Barbados Royals made a winning start to their 2022 campaign, defeating St Kitts & Nevis Patriots by seven wickets. The match was reduced to 17 overs per side due to rain, with the Royals chasing down 150 with 11 balls to spare. Kyle Mayers starred with 73 off 46.

St Lucia Kings, however, suffered a three-wicket defeat against Trinbago Knight Riders in their tournament opener. Roshon Primus top-scored as they posted 143 for 9; TKR completed their chase with four balls remaining.

What's the match-up to watch?

Availability permitting, St Lucia Kings should have their batting line-up boosted by Faf du Plessis, Tim David and David Wiese. Add in Roston Chase and that's a fairly intimidating batting group.

Barbados Royals have their own big-hitters in Rahkeem Cornwall, Mayers, Azam Khan and David Miller, but their bowling attack was smacked about a bit by Andre Fletcher in their tournament opener and won't be relishing trying to keep St Lucia's overseas trio quiet.

What's the news from the camps?

Harry Tector has been included as a temporary replacement for Mujeeb Ur Rahman (Asia Cup) for Barbados Royals. David Miller, fresh from his stint in The Hundred, captained the Royals in their tournament opener but Quinton de Kock was absent.

St Lucia were missing their star players against TKR, with du Plessis, David and Wiese all participating in The Hundred. However, all three players are set to be available to face Barbados Royals.

What's the prediction?

St Lucia Kings should be able to call upon their overseas contingent and having run TKR close with an understrength side, what's to stop them beating Barbados Royals? St Lucia Kings win.
