Barbados Royals take on St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the Caribbean Premier League 2022 (CPL) on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, at the Providence Stadium in Guyana from 7:30 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).
Barbados Royals have been the most consistent team in CPL 2022, winning seven of their eight matches so far. The Royals bounced back after their first defeat of the season to beat Guyana Amazon Warriors by 29 runs in their last match. Jason Holder was the MVP for the league leaders as the high-flying Royals took another step towards the playoffs.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have been underwhelming in their title defence this season. The Patriots have won twice and lost twice in the last four matches in CPL 2022. While Evin Lewis has failed to repeat his heroics from last season, Andre Fletcher and Dwayne Bravo have sparked the Patriots' resurgence after a poor start to their campaign.

Andre Fletcher: The 34-year-old opening batter has scored the most runs for the Patriots in CPL 2022. Fletcher has amassed 207 runs at an average of 41.40 and has held the batting lineup together this season. He is also capable of playing match-winning cameos in the powerplay.
Dwayne Bravo: The West Indian cricketer is one of the most decorated all-rounders in the history of the T20 format. DJ Bravo has left his stamp on the Patriots this season and is their leading wicket-taker with seven wickets in this campaign. The Patriots captain is well-known for his exploits with the ball in the death overs which will prove to be a challenge for the Royals in this match.
Barbados Royals vs St Kitts and Nevis Patriots CPL 2022 prediction
Barbados Royals have performed admirably this season and by far look the most in-form team in the competition. The Royals won comfortably against the Patriots earlier this season and once again see the odds stacked in their favour for a win in this match.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have managed to recover after their initial slump in the CPL 2022 but are yet to gather any sort of winning momentum. Although they have a lower winning probability in this match, the Patriots have historically done well against the Royals and can be expected to challenge the league leaders in this game.
