CPL 2021 SLK vs BR Prediction: St Lucia Kings take on Barbados Royals in the first of three games on Super Saturday. Kings head into this game after back-to-back defeats versus the Warriors and Tallawahs. They probably need just one win to secure a playoff spot. On the other hand, the Royals are languishing at the bottom and they will need a lot of results to go their way in order to qualify.
