BBR vs SLK Pitch Reports:

The surface in St Kitts has traditionally been good for batting and remains true throughout the game. That being said, the fast bowlers pose a threat with the new ball in the first innings and the teams batting second have usually triumphed in this venue owing to that fact. The team winning the toss will likely opt to bowl first in the match.

BBR vs SLK, Match 6, Probable Best Players:

Probable Best Batter

Kyle Mayers

The West Indian opener heads into the game on the back of a sizzling knock of 73 run off just 46 deliveries, which helped the Barbados side over the line with 11 balls to spare in the match. The southpaw has been in tremendous form late and is a serious threat to the bowlers, especially during the field restrictions.

Probable Best Bowler

Alzarri Joseph

Although Saint Lucia Kings lost their previous encounter, Alzarri Joseph wreaked havoc with the ball and almost pulled off a heist for his side as he scalped four wickets in the latter stages of the match to keep St Lucia in the contest. He finished with exceptional bowling figures of 4/17 in his four overs as Saint Lucia suffered a narrow defeat in their season opener.
