Explorers and Strikers in for a final T10 date!
FORT CHARLOTTE STRIKERS to win the match!
Vincy premier league's group stages are over and we have our four semi-finalists in place to play the knockouts. The two teams that failed to make the cut will face-off for the 5th position in the points table first.
Fort Charlotte Strikers and Dark View Explorers will battle it out for the fifth spot in the points table. Fort Charlotte Strikers have just a win in their league phase while Dark View Explorers have 2 wins in the same number of matches. Both teams will look to win this match and avoid the wooden spoon finishing last in the league. This will be the last match for these two teams and will look to enter their campaign with a win.
Explorers batting unit is not in form off late scoring below 80 runs in all their last 4 encounters. Shammon Hooper (137 runs), Lindon James (130 runs), & Deron Greaves (143 runs) scored the bulk of runs for the team. They did not score consistently in the second half of the league with only Shammon Hooper scoring two 30+ scores in the last four matches.
Sealron Williams (10 wickets) and Deron Greaves Greaves (8 wickets) bowled well but had an overall economy rate over 8 RPO. No bowler in their bowling unit has an economy rate below 7 RPO and they failed to bowl well as a unit in the league.
Deron Greaves – Deron Greaves has 143 runs and 8 wickets in the league so far. He would look to put on another all-round show to bid adieu to the T10 league in good fashion.
Sealron Williams – Williams has 10 wickets at an economy of 8.1 RPO while his figures in last 4 matches tally read as 8-0-78-3. He will look to salvage some pride by bowling economically in this match.
