CPL T20 Betting Tips & Predictions 2021

Team analysis, schedule, betting tips, today match predictions and more on Caribbean Premier League, the most popular twenty20 tournament of the Caribbean, starting from 26 Aug till 15 Sep 2021

Who will win CPL 2022

The Caribbean Premier League returns on August 26 with some of the biggest names in T20 cricket ready to play in the tournament.

All 33 matches will take place in Saint Kitts and Nevis where global cricketing superstars will congregate to try and wrestle the title away from the 2020 Champions Trinbago Knight Riders.

As there is no crossover with the rescheduled IPL, the CPL has managed to attract overseas big names such as Colin Munro, Shakib al Hasan, Faf du Plessis, Matthew Wade, and Sandeep Lamichhane.

Trinbago Knight Riders have Lendl Simmons and Darren Bravo in their side again. Simmons top scored in the 2020 tournament with 356 runs, Darren Bravo finished in 3rd place with 297.

Guyana Amazon Warriors are favourites for the 2021 competition, followed by holders Trinbago Knight Riders and then Barbados Royals.

Barbados Tridents, the defending champions, as well St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Jamaica Tallawahs are among the middle prices and St Lucia Zouks start as outsiders.

Which Team will Win CPL 2022

We have a new name for the Barbados Royals who have been brought under the Rajasthan Royals umbrella. They will be hoping for an immediate change in fortune for the side who picked up only six points and finished next to bottom in 2021. This was quite the turnaround after winning the 2020 tournament.

Team Information

Barbados Royals (BR) Team Information

Former West Indies skipper Jason Holder retains the captaincy and he will be joined by the familiar faces of Hayden Walsh and Shai Hope. Kyle Mayers, who hit 210* on Test debut for West Indies in Bangladesh earlier this year, was their highest run scorer in 2020 and returns with a far bigger profile this time.

Mayers and Johnson Charles were the top run scorers for the franchise last year with Rashid Khan and Jason Holders the chief wicket takers. Afghanistan’s Khan will not be returning for Barbados this year and will be a big loss to the side.

Squad changes

Barbados Royals (BR) Squad changes

In place of Khan, the Royals have signed Mohammad Amir, the vastly experienced left-arm bowler who has played in many of the top T20 leagues across the globe. Sri Lanka’s Thisara Perera feature in a strong list of overseas signings.

Hayden Walsh may feel like a new signing as the West Indies spinner has enjoyed an incredible couple of months in which he took 19 wickets in 8 white-ball games against Australia.

Barbados Royals won the CPL in 2014 and 2019 but have finished 5th or 6th in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2010.

Barbados Royals (BR) Team Key Players

  • Jason Holder:

    The former West Indies captain hit 192 runs and took 10 wickets in an under-performing team in 2020.

  • Kyle Mayers:

    Top scored for Barbados with 222 runs last year before announcing himself as a top batter and useful bowler on the international stage.

  • Hayden Walsh

    The spinner has enjoyed a breakthrough season after dominating the Australia team in IT20 and ODI fixtures.

  • Shai Hope:

    The West Indies batsman has found himself back in the Test side and hit 6 consecutive ODI centuries from 2020-2021.

  • Mohammad Amir:

    The retired international bowler is a familiar face on the franchise circuit who terrorises batsmen with late swing and pace.

CPL 2021 Barbados Royals (BR) Team Squad

Jason Holder, Johnson Charles, Shai Hope, Kyle Mayers, Hayden Walsh, Raymon Reifer, Justin Greaves, Nyeem Young, Joshua Bishop, Mohammad Amir, Thisara Perera, Azam Khan, Shafiqullah Ghafari, Oshane Thomas, Ashley Nurse, Smit Patel

Expert Prediction

Expert Prediction for Barbados Royals (BR)

Fifth Place

Barbados Royals have once again brought together a very talented group of players and they will be under no illusions that a 5th place finish will not be acceptable under the new regime. We expect to see Kyle Mayers and Hayden Walsh to return to the competition playing with a high level of confidence.

Barbados Royals (BR) CPL 2021 odds

Barbados Royals are 5.50 with Betway to win the 2021 Carribean Premier League.

CPL 2022 Group Stage Prediction

  1. Trinbago Knight Riders are once again the team to beat after winning all 12 of their matches in the 2020 CPL tournament
  2. One look at the Knight Riders squad will have the opposition franchises wondering how they will be able to stop so many strong players
  3. Guyana Amazon Warriors have qualified for the play-offs in every edition of the CPL. They have recruited very smartly and we expect them to finish in the top four again.
  4. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have compiled a far stronger side than in 2020 and they will be far more competitive this year. We predict them to register a major improvement on their one win in last season’s tournament
  5. Dwayne Bravo and Gayle will bring a huge amount of experience and quality to the Patriots. The combination of these two is certainly a match-winning combination for the team.
  6. Certain players will re-emerge at the CPL unrecognisable from the players in the 2020 competition. Kyle Mayers and Hayden Walsh are now global superstars and should propel Barbados Royals into the semi-final stage at least
  7. Rashid Khan will be missed for Barbados and the pressure is on Mohammad Amir to step up and take his wickets
  8. Jamaica Tallawahs have compiled a team of unpredictable players. They will absolutely destroy some sides but probably come up short in others. They may struggle to replicate last year’s top four spot
  9. Saint Lucia Kings were propelled to the final by the wickets of Scott Kuggeleijn. His 17 wickets will be hard to replace and their qualification for the semi-final may rest on this
  10. However, they have recruited some experienced franchise players in Faf du Plessis and Samit Patel with Matthew Wade flying the flag for Australia

CPL 2021 Group Stage Standings Prediction

  • Trinbago Knight Riders
  • Guyana Amazon Warriors
  • Barbados Royals
  • St Kitts & Nevis Patriots
  • Saint Lucia Kings
  • Jamaica Tallawahs

CPL 2022 Playoff Prediction

We expect to see the usual suspects in Trinbago Knight Riders and Guyana Amazon Warriors qualifying for the play-offs. Both sides have reached the knockout stage in every season and we predict this to continue in 2021.

Trinbago Knight Riders were unstoppable in 2020 and we see nothing to make us think they can be stopped by any side in the group stage.

Guyana Amazon Warriors finished in 2nd in the group last season but were unable to reach the final. We expect them to go one stage further in 2021 and to get a shot at the title.

Alongside the Knight Riders and the Amazon Warriors, we expect to see Barbados Royals and the Chris Gayle inspired St Kitts & Nevis Patriots in the semi-finals. The Royals and the Patriots may be able to get some momentum going during the tournament but for now we would predict the semi-final to be their limit.
