Cricket fans are in for a thrilling showdown as the Barbados Royals prepare to face off against the Saint Lucia Kings in the 16th match of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2023. The much-anticipated encounter is scheduled to take place at the iconic Kensington Oval in Bridgetown.

The Saint Lucia Kings currently occupy the top spot on the CPL 2023 table with an impressive 6 points.

On the other side of the spectrum, the Barbados Royals are situated in the 5th position with 5 points to their name.

The Saint Lucia Kings secured a convincing 54-run victory over the Trinbago Knight Riders, showcasing their batting prowess and strong bowling attack. The Royals, meanwhile, also emerged victorious in their last match, triumphing over Jamaica Tallawahs by 6 wickets.
