Most impressive CPL team I can remember

This Barbados Royals iteration seems to be able to chase down a total but also able to restrict teams.

With overseas players being so hit or miss I certainly did not see this coming.

Maybe they will choke in the finals like the unbeaten 2019 Amazon Warriors.

I remember that, but don't forget that TKR went unbeaten the last year they won the tournament. So it is very possible for the Royals to go on to win the CPL undefeated. I expect them to lose a game or two on their way to winning the trophy smile.

They will not win another.

Means they are not impressive?
Equally so haven't we seen a year - Barbados Tridents - where a team won the title (by teifing out de muddies) and were quite underwhelming?

They will be losing two key players after this round ...

Miller and DeKock

only won because nobody had figured out talentless H Walsh as yet. Most WI batsmen freeze at the sight of even a mediocre spinner

Miller is replaceable. Now if you said Cornwall...

I guess.

The pelters are much harder to figure out.

I think i overheard the commies saying that Miller and de Kock will leave for home duties after this T&T leg ..

Yes, I meant another match. Testing myprediction skills. big grin

plzzz....de pelters could have been medium pacers who don't move the ball an inch and still be more effective than hayden after his first 4 months of mystery

 
Windiesfan78 2022-09-14 17:43:20 

Royals will lift the trophy at the end of the tournament. The trophy will look nice in the cabinet next to the 6ixty lol.

We agree.

Pelters are very hard to figure out.

Miller is replaceable.

Hmmm doubt that!

Miller's captaincy will be missed so too his effortless six hitting and catching/fielding

De Kock's batting and wicketkeeping will be missed.

Their absence in Guyana could halt Royals run for the title

Any word on their replacements?

With reference to your memory,I would strongly suggest you do not depend on it too much. As recently as 2019, the Guyana Amazon Warriors won all 11 games prior to the Final against guess who- BARBADOS and lost that final game.

As they say in Guyana-Do not count egg in Fowl Batty!!!!!

I am confused Dukes. Did you read my opening post?

Maybe they will choke in the finals like the unbeaten 2019 Amazon Warriors.


And my subsequent post?

Equally so haven't we seen a year - Barbados Tridents - where a team won the title (by teifing out de muddies) and were quite underwhelming?


I remember. What I also remember of that team is they could score runs but the bowling in my mind was not a good as these Royals. But I do accept this is from memory; I have not looked at the numbers. I could.

You and Dukesie?

Man all the heavy hitters in here. big grin

 
nick2020 2022-09-14 19:39:01 

This is not the end all be all but here is NRR of the unbeatens:

2020 - TKR 1.294
2019 - GAW 1.724

BR now stand at 1.881.

Again NRR is not the end all be all to dominance as it can be heavily influence by if you are chasing or defending, or if D/L came into play.

Your headline is

Most impressive CPL team I can remember
Followed by
This Barbados Royals iteration seems to be able to chase down a total but also able to restrict teams.

The fact that you go on to state that the unbeaten Warriors team either implies that despite the fact that they were unbeaten prior to the Finals they were not as impressive as this current team OPR by the time you wrote about them you had forgotten the headline you wrote.
You are the only person who can clear that up.

It does seem a bit surprising that a team with an unbeaten streak of 6 games is more impressive than one with 11 games but in life all things are possible.

I think that it is more understandable to forget something from 3 years ago rather than 2 years ago and to forget one instance rather than 2.That might seem to be piling on so I omitted that.Now if someone forgets something from 2 years ago it is very likely that he would also forget something from 3 years ago.

IRREGARDLESS the whole tread/thread seems pointless so there will be no further participation from me in pointless back and forth.

In my mind no the unbeaten Warriors were not as impressive.

Take away the two South Africans and Barbados is back to their usual bottom of the table scrap

Dukesy,

Step 1 - Collect enough data
Step 2 - Process the data correctly

 
nick2020 2022-09-27 16:52:56 

If the Royal survive VOR and get into the finals they would be a 1 loss team who played without 2 of the best players.

Certainly making a case. Your thoughts?
