Best Saint Lucia Kings Bet for 2021

Faf du Plessis to be CPL Top Batsman @ 13.0 with Betway

He’s captained his country in all three formats including at two T20 World Cups and has won the IPL with CSK, among numerous other achievements. These days he rarely plays for South Africa anymore and has instead chosen to focus on playing as much T20 cricket as he possibly can.

So that’s why he’s only making his debut in the CPL this year, which is a negative.

But that may be the only negative because this is one of T20’s most consistent top-order batsmen, with an average of 30, hitting 41 fifties (he also has a century) in 243 games at domestic level and a healthy if not brutal, strike rate of 128.

He can play just about any shot in the book and was the leading run-scorer in the 2021 IPL before it got suspended. When it resumes,he could well go on to win it. It would be better for the bet if he opens rather than batting at three but he’s still capable of piling on the runs from first wicket down.

Some of the best cricket betting online in India can be found at 10CRIC, Betway and Pure Win. They’re also offering Caribbean Premier League betting odds on pre-tournament markets such as the winner market.

Being a side that has historically fared quite poorly in the tournament, the odds of them winning the tournament are obviously quite high. That said, the team has some talented players in the batting and bowling departments, thus opening the way to bet on them in other markets like top scorer, top wicket-taker, and so on.

Saint Lucia Kings betting predictions 2021

Here you will find the latest cricket betting tips available for each and every game played by the Saint Lucia Kings in the CPL 2021. In addition to detailed previews, predictions, and tips, we will also bring to you the latest developments and news from the team so you are always updated on what’s happening where.

Historic performances in the CPL

Saint Lucia Kings, who are sponsored by Indibet, is a side that has been on the short end of the stick since the inception of the tournament back in 2013. In the first two editions of the CPL, the side bagged just four wins across the two seasons and consequently finishing at the 6th and 5th place respectively.

In fact, except for the 2016 and 2020 editions, Saint Lucia Kings (then known as St Lucia Zouks) have always finished in the bottom two positions of the table.

Last season was unarguably their best one yet – they finished at third place with six wins from 10 matches to qualify for the playoffs. The boys defeated Guyana Amazon Warriors by 10 wickets to reach the final, where they ultimately succumbed to Trinbago Knight Riders.

This kind of performance by the Kings was certainly unprecedented and needless to say, their surprising run would have sent the world of Caribbean Premier League betting into a fix.

For the upcoming season, they are heading strong with a few changes and new signings.

Crown to represent the Captain of the Saint Lucia Kings

Captain: Faf du Plessis

The South African star needs no introduction. Faf du Plessis, at 37 years old, is still going strong in the world of cricket. He has plied his trade for numerous T20 leagues across the world, including the Indian Premier League, Pakistan Super League, and the Big Bash League.

The Protean is also a regular for the national team and may very well be a key component of his country’s World Cup campaign later this year.

In the IPL, du Plessis is a regular for Chennai Super Kings. In the 2021 edition of the same, he is the top runscorer with 320 runs in seven innings – a good 100 runs ahead of the second-placed Moeen Ali. He is in terrific form this season – just what you need from your skipper.

Clearly, Faf du Plessis brings with him a ton of experience – something that may be beneficial for Saint Lucia Kings. The last time he played in the CPL was in 2016 with St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots – this time around, he will be hoping to deliver a much better performance.

Trophy to represent the key player for the Saint Lucia Kings in the CPL

Key Player: Wahab Riaz

Saint Lucia Kings are clearly pinning their hopes on experienced players, with Wahab Riaz serving as the next best example of the same.

The Pakistani seamer had a terrific campaign in the Pakistan Super League, picking up 18 wickets for Peshawar Zalmi and playing a crucial role in the team’s run to the final (they ultimately lost to Multan Sultans). Nonetheless, Riaz managed to finish as the second-highest wicket-taker in the league.

After being out of the limelight for quite some time, he has enjoyed a great comeback in the last year or so. He will certainly look at the CPL as a chance to make his case to be a part of Pakistan’s T20 World Cup roster.

The expectations will be high for him to deliver in the death overs and lead the charge in bowling.

Medal to represent the game changer for the Saint Lucia Kings in the CPL

Game-Change: Matthew Wade

A middle-order specialist, Matthew Wade’s role in the team will likely be that of bringing in the runs – if and when the opening batsmen fail to deliver.

He has been quite active in 2021, playing for Australia in a bunch of T20I matches against the West Indies and Bangladesh. He was also a regular for Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League where he has had his moments.

As the only Australian player in the CPL 2021, the onus will be on him to make his team and country proud.

Saint Lucia Kings FAQs


The Kings are yet to win the Caribbean Premier League. The closest they came to was in 2020 when they reached the final but fell to Trinbago Knight Riders.

Faf du Plessis will be leading the Saint Lucia Kings in the CPL 2021.

Their home ground is the Darren Sammy Cricket Ground in Gros Islet, Saint Lucia. However, for the 2021 edition, they will be playing all their matches away from home – at the Warner Park Sporting Complex in Basseterre.

The team is coached by Andy Flower – Zimbabwe’s legendary cricketer. Flower guided Multan Sultans to their maiden PSL trophy earlier this season and additionally serves as the assistant coach for Punjab Kings.
