Kingston will have good weather in range of early 30 degrees and players will enjoy playing on the match day. No weather interruption is expected to halt the match.
With good experience of playing conditions both batsmen and bowlers are looking to outwit the other. The pitch might favor spinners due to its used nature. We can expect average score in range of 80-90 runs.
Despite two matches being won by chasing teams last night, batting first will be the best option considering the 70% success rate in matches.
Salt Pond Breakers will look to get back to their winning ways after losing their first match last night. Grenadines Divers have a lot at stake and a loss can eliminate them from the league. Both teams batting heavily depends on their top order while Breakers have a better bowling attack when compared to Divers.
We expect Salt Pond breakers to win this match.
Salt Pond Breakers will win the match!
