Can the Divers upset the Hikers' rhythm?
LA SOUFRIER HIKERS to win the match!
Vincy T10 premier league is a welcome distraction for the people suffering from lockdown and boredom. T10 cricket provides some pacy action-packed matches in a small package. The Vincy league is entering the middle phase where teams don’t want to stay behind the race for qualification.
La Soufriere Hikers are in a good position with 3 wins from 4 matches and a win in this match will further strengthen their position in the points table. Grenadines Divers are struggling for momentum with just 1 win in 4 matches and a loss in this match may push them to the brink of elimination.
Grenadines Divers failed to chase the target and lost by 6 runs last night. Asif Hooper`s 59 against Strikers is the only substantial knock played by any batsmen in the Divers team. No other player has played a 30+ knock so far. Their batting unit needs to play consistently and the top order except Asif Hopper must contribute to the team.
Obed McCoy, Braxie Browne, and Razine Browne bowled well to take 4 wickets between them and restrict the opposition to 86 runs. Their bowling unit has never conceded 100+ runs in the league so far.
Asif Hopper – Asif Hopper has a run tally of 79 runs at a strike rate of 140 with a high score 59 so far. He also has 3 wickets at an economy rate of just 5.6 RPO. He will look to continue his good all-round showing in this match too.
Raxine Browne – Raxine Browne has 4 wickets at an economy of 6 RPO so far. He has chipped with crucial wickets in the middle overs in the last two matches to restrict the opposition.

Kingston has a cool and breezy climate with 30% chance of rain on the match day. But the forecast expects the rains only to be scattered and passing showers.
The players are familiar with the conditions and have good idea of what to expect from the pitch. The overcast conditions may tilt the pitch in the bowler's favor the match day. We expect average scores of 80-100 runs.
Last night 80+ scores were defended in two matches and the highest score chased so far is just 75 runs. Chasing teams seem to lose under pressure and both captains will look to bat first in this match too.
La Soufriere Hikers have momentum and form on their side with their batting and bowling departments stepping up the game to compliment the other. Grenadines Divers have an ill-performing batting line-up with no player except Asif Hopper making a good score. The Divers team needs to get its act right before it becomes too latest.
