Match 24 of the 2022 Caribbean Premier League brings Barbados Royals and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots together on Wednesday morning at the Providence Stadium. The Royals are top of the table with 14 points from eight fixtures. The Patriots are in fifth place, two points from the Kings in second. Read on as we preview this game. The match gets underway in Guyana at 10:00 local time.
The Royals have seen their last two games settled by DLS and got back to winning ways against Guyana Amazon Warriors. They have been far too strong for nearly every opposition in the tournament.
St Kitts & Nevis Patriots have lost two of their last three games to Saint Lucia Kings. However, they have some genuine match-winners on their side and should not be written off in this match.

BR Team News
Spinner Hayen Walsh came back into the team with Joshua Bishop dropping out of the side ahead of the victory over Guyana Amazon Warriors. With the game reduced to 16 overs a side, we expect to see no changes to the line-up ahead of this fixture.
BR Key Players
Kyle Mayers – Although the left-handed opener has scored only 10 runs across his last two innings, he is still the second-highest run-scorer across the tournament so far.
Jason Holder – The bowling all-rounder top scored for the Royals in Match 22. He hit one four and three sixes in his 40 not out from 33 balls.
Obed McCoy – The 25-year-old pace bowler has taken nine wickets from his last four matches and dismissed Romario Shepherd and Odean Smith in the last game.
BR Team Form
The Royals have been the strongest side in the tournament and bounced back from their only defeat with the win over Guyana Amazon Warriors on Sunday.
SKN Team News
After beating Jamaica Tallawahs, the Patriots kept the same XI for Match 20 against Saint Lucia Kings on Saturday. A lack of top-order runs cost the team in that game, and we may see a change in the batting order, but we do not anticipate any changes to the side.
SKN Key Players
Andre Fletcher – The opener hit 81 runs from 55 balls in the game between the sides in Basseterre on September 1. He has scored 21 fours across the tournament.
Dwayne Bravo – The all-rounder and captain is the leading wicket-taker for his side. He took 2-26 in the defeat to Saint Lucia Kings in the last match.
Rashid Khan – Against the Kings, the Afghan spinner made a very useful 26 runs from 19 balls after earlier dismissing Niroshan Dickwella and the leading run scorer in the CPL 2022, Johnson Charles.
SKN Team Form
The Patriots have not been able to win successive games in the campaign and have lost two of their last three matches.
