The Royals have been bolstered with the inclusion of Raymon Reifer, who got the Player of the Match award in the previous game.
Barbados Royals and Jamaica Tallawahs are all set to lock horns in Match No.10 of the 2021 CPL on Wednesday, September 1 at Warner Park. The Royals started their campaign with two defeats against Trinbago Knight Riders and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots but made a stupendous comeback.
In their previous game, they beat the Tallawahs by 15 runs. But despite the win, they keep languishing in the bottom half of the points table. The Tallawahs, on the other hand, are placed second. They have a net run rate of 2.625 mostly because of their 120-run win over Saint Lucia Kings.

Where to watch live – Star Sports, Fancode
The pitch at Warner Park has been a fairly sporting one thus far. The track has helped the slower bowlers and shot-making has been a tad tough at times. Chasing can be a tad tricky and hence, putting runs on the board should be the way forward.

Probable best batter of the match
Glenn Phillips— Barbados Royals
Glenn Phillips has played for the Tallawahs for several seasons and hence should be aware of their bowling attack. In the previous game, he scored an unbeaten 56 and guided his team to a victory. For the time being, he is also the leading run-scorer for the Royals. The New Zealand batter will be looking to churn out another knock of substance next time.
Probable best bowler of the match
Migael Pretorius — Jamaica Tallawahs
Migael Pretorius, the South Africa fast bowler, started his campaign after Rahkeem Cornwall hit him for 14 runs off three balls. However, the pacer came back to pick up four crucial wickets and pushed the Kings on the backfoot. In the second game against the Royals, he got one wicket. The pacer is again expected to deliver and lead the bowling attack.
