Can the Strikes break the Salt Pond!
SALT POND BREAKERS to win the match!
Vincy T10 league has been much welcomed by the Caribbean public and we see a good fan following across the media too. The first day of the T10 league has some good exciting three matches and this league promises to be a big hit.
Salt Pond Breakers overcame the Grenadines Divers by 3 wickets in a thrilling win. Fort Charlotte Strikes succumbed to a defeat against Dark View Explorers. The Salt pond Breakers will look to continue their momentum and build winning streak while Fort Charlotte Strikes will look to get the first win off their way.
Breakers came successful in a tricky chase of 70 runs in their opening match. They were reduced to 45/6 in 7 overs before Urnel Thomas (20 runs) and Kadir Nedd (15 runs) took their team home with a vital 22-run partnership in a quick time.
Their bowling unit right on the money after Sunil Ambris put the opposition to bat claiming all 10 wickets. Wesrick Strough picked 3 wickets while Sunil Ambris and Donwell Hector took 2 wickets each. Delorn Johnson bowled a superb spell of 2-0-5-1 to keep the scoring rate under check.
Sunil Ambris – Ambris two wickets broke the momentum of opposition from 51/2 to 51/4 which lead to their massive collapse. We expect Sunil Ambris to hit some huge sixes with the bat in this match.
Wesrick Strough – Wesrick Strough bowled the final over and took the first hat-trick in the Vincyt T10 league. He had bowling figures of 1-0-7-3 in the match.

Gidron Pope (28 runs) and Renrick Williams (20 runs) played good knocks to build their innings but they failed to continue till the end. Chelson Stowe played a couple of good hits to take their team to a score of 75 runs on board. Ronald Scott`s 7-ball duck at the top was a huge setback for the team.
Sealroy Williams and Kirton Lavia took a wicket each but hot enough to trouble the chase. Ray Jordan was the pick of the bowlers despite not getting any wickets in the match. Kirton Lavia, Rasheed Fredrick, and Chelson Stowe gave runs at over 10 RPO.
Gidron Pope – Pope played a good knock of 28 runs at the top but would have loved to continue and register a fifty for the team. He will be looking to do the same in this match.
Ray Jordon – Ray Jordon had amazing figures of 2-0-4-0 in the match and he got no support from the other end. He will look to get a few wickets to his name in this match.

Kingston has cool breezy and overcast weather on the match day. We don’t expect any weather interruptions on the match day.
The overcast conditions have made the pitch little spicy and we have seen average scores in the range of 70-80 runs in all the matches played so far. Chasing becomes easier unless a big score is put on the scoreboard.
Chasing teams have won all the matches so far in the league. Any score less than 85 runs will be hard to defend in this format.
Salt pond Breakers have good experienced players in both batting and bowling departments when compared to Fort Charlotte strikers. They also have winning momentum and confidence on their side after a close thrilling win in the first match. Strikes will expect their players will put up a spirited performance to secure their first win.
