SLK vs BR Betting Tips: St. Lucia Kings are eyeing their next contest of CPL 2022, which will be played against Jason Holder’s Barbados Royals. The game will officially kick off at 4:30 AM Indian Time on September 9 with the Daren Sammy Cricket Stadium being reserved to be the hosts.
PITCH REPORT: Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium
The recently refurbished Daren Sammy Cricket Stadium will be one of the premier venues in the ongoing season of the Caribbean league. The venue consists of balanced pitches which might degrade as the league progresses. We expect the surface to be a batting paradise for this game.
Rain has been a big factor in the ongoing edition of the CPL. Multiple matches have been halted as well as abandoned due to the persistent downfall. The teams prefer to run chase whenever there are possibilities of precipitation as the Duckworth-Lewis method comes into play.

TOP 5 SLK vs BR BETTING TIPS:
1. 1st Innings – Chase, Roston Total: Over 17.5
Roston Chase, The middle-order batter of St. Lucia Kings is considered to the most technically equipped batsman of the team. The right-hander features in the national team consistently across all three formats. Chase is averaging more than 30 in his last ten games.
2. 1st Innings – St. Lucia Top Batter: Faf Du Plessis
The captain of St. Lucia namely Faf Du Plessis has been one of the prominent names in the major T20 league across the globe, over the last couple of years. The former Proteas skipper missed out on initial matches of the league as he was part of the grand finale of recently-concluded ‘The Hundred’. He has joined the Roayls’ team and is now all set to take back the charge.
3. Top Batter Total: Under 66.5
The pitches in the Caribbean do not allow batters to play long innings. The sluggishness in the surface increases as the game progresses, making shot-making extremely difficult for the batters. We do not anticipate a batsman playing mammoth innings in this game.
4. First innings overs 0 to 6 – Barbados Royals total: Over 47.5
South African Quinton De Kock and Caribbean Kyle Mayers bat at the top of the order for Barbados Royals. It is by far the most explosive and consistent opening pair in the ongoing season of the league. Both the marquee batters possess innate hitting ability.
5. First innings – de Kock, Quinton Total: Over 22.5
Quinton De Kock, The elite opening batter is possibly the best batsman in the Royals’ line-up. The left-hander has looked in fine rhythm, however, he is due for an impactful knock. We expect the Proteas star to bat for an extended period in the all-important game.
The Jason Holder-led Barbados Royals rank at the top of the points table at the moment in this season of the CPL. The Royals have managed to register three victories in three consecutive games. Rely on them to clinch another dominating win, but this time, over Faf Du Plessis’ star-stubbed St. Lucia Kings Kings.
