SLK vs BR – Match 25 of CPL 2021 – Dream11 Team, Predictions, and Fantasy Tips

This article will talk about the probable XIs for both teams and continue with the Dream11 predictions and the winning fantasy team for Match 25 of the CPL 2021 between Barbados Royals and Saint Lucia Kings that is scheduled to take place on the 11th of September 2021.

The Barbados Royals led by Jason Holder who are currently in the last place with 2 wins in 8 games have a very slim chance to move to the next round. They will take on the St Lucia Kings who sit in 4th with 4 wins in as many matches. This will be 1st of 2 games between the sides in this edition of CPL.

Barbados once again showed a listless performance, this time against the defending champions TKR on Thursday where they scored a mere 93/9 batting first. Kyle Mayers at the top of the order scored a 12-ball 24 but the rest despite getting starts couldn’t go on further. The target of 94 wasn’t enough for their bowlers to make a match out of it as the Knight Riders chased it down by 6 wickets and more than 3 overs to spare.

Lucia Kings also lost their previous game against the Tallawahs but they have a great chance to proceed to the next round provided they win. They allowed the Jamaica Tallawahs to score 211 with almost all their bowlers proving to be expensive, even though Jeavor Royal and Kadeem Alleyne took 2 wickets apiece. In response, the Kings were bowled out for 156 with none of the top-4 building their starts to make it a big one.

Match Details 

Venue: Warner Park, Basseterre, St Kitts

Pitch and Weather:  Likely to be a typical Caribbean pitch that will offer more to the bowlers so far and the batters have been able to score after getting an eye in. There were several games that were in the range of 140-160 and we can see the same in this game as well. Sunny weather is expected on the match-day and the temperature will be around 28C.

Date & Time: September 11, 10 AM Local time, 7.30 PM IST

Probable Playing XIs

The batting order of Barbados struggled once again as only Kyle Mayers looked in any sort of comfort in the last game. Charles, Glenn Phillips, Azam Khan never got going as they could manage just 93 on what could be termed as a slow surface. So they might give chances to the bench as their chances of reaching playoffs is minimal.

Saint Lucia Kings lost their previous game after winning three consecutive matches prior to that. So they may not worry too much about the loss but would want the rest of their top-order which is reliant on Roston Chase to score more. The likes of Du Plessis, Andre Fletcher have been inconsistent and their bowlers had an off-color conceding more than 200 runs on a flat surface.

Wicket-Keepers: Andre Fletcher can be selected as the lone wicket-keeping option. He is a hard-hitting batsman who has made 183 runs at the top of the order in this CPL.

He has taken 7 wickets in 6 games and has scored 92 runs with the bat in hand. Roston Chase is the highest run-scorer in this ongoing season. The all-rounder scored 311 runs and also took 8 wickets. Jason Holder is the 3rd all-rounder on the side having scored 75 runs with the bat and 4 wickets.

Captaincy Choices 

Fantasy Team: Andre Fletcher, Tim David, Kyle Mayors, Faf Du Plessis, Glenn Phillips, Roston Chase(C), Jason Holder, Alzari Joseph, Raymon Reifer, Nayeem Young, Jeavor Royal

Captain – Roston Chase

The all-rounder has produced a stunning display in this CPL so far taking 8 wickets and making 311 runs. This has earned him a place in the West Indies T20 World Cup squad and as a captain here in the fantasy.

Vice-Captain- Faf Du Plessis

St Lucia skipper may be inconsistent but has scored a century in this competition. So being a class act he can be the vice-captain of the side.
