PERFORMANCE OF TEAMS IN CPL 2021 :
As the half of the tournament is over, Barbados Royals are struggling badly. They are at the bottom of the table with just 1 win in their bag. Last year Royals remained at the 2nd last position at the end of the tournament. They almost won the last match against St.Kitts, but Cottrell’s heroics took the game away from them. They have to win all the remaining matches to be in contention of winning the title.
Whereas Guyana Amazon Warriors have only managed to win 2 games out of 5 games they have played. They have recently beaten by St.Kitts and Nevis Patriots as they had a comprehensive win of 51 runs.This match shows a lot of loopholes in the batting line-up, only Nicholas Pooran showed some fireworks but was unable to take the team over the line.

The wicket has been decent for scoring runs if batsmen can spend time at the crease. While chasing was difficult in the initial games, we have seen targets being scaled down in the last few games. Scores in 160-range can continue to be the norm but teams batting first will want to do better and get closer to the 170-mark.
PLAYERS TO WATCH OUT FOR : Kennar Lewis ,Romario Shephard, Mohammad Hafeez, Imran Tahir
HEAD TO HEAD CPL 2013-2021 :
