Johnson Charles

The top-order batter has been in tremendous touch in this year’s tournament and has registered a half-century in three of his last five innings. He overtook Kyle Mayers after scoring a brisk 61 in his previous innings, to take his place at the summit of the run-scoring charts for this season. The wicketkeeper-batter is crucial for his side’s chances of making it through to the playoffs.

Alzarri Joseph

Alzarri Joseph has found his stride in this year’s edition of the CPL and is the joint leading wicket-taker of the tournament with 13 scalps to his name in just seven outings. Although his form has dipped in the last couple of matches, the speedster has been a menace for the batters with his rapid bouncers and yorkers.
