LA Soufriere Hikers are in the 4th position in the points table with one win and one loss in the tournament. A victory against the Dark View Hikers will lift their tournament position. At the same time, Dark View Explorers is at the bottom of the points table after losing all the games they have played, but they haven’t been that bad. Their batsmen are in good shape, their bowlers who were too costly are the question for them here. Deron Greaves played a fantastic knock of 82 against Grenadines Divers at the top, and on his day he is a match-winner. The same is true of Shammon Hooper, who has 50 to his name too. Only if their bowlers can perform would they be a significant challenger to any team. For La Soufriere, the key players will be Shivam Browne and Dillon Douglas.
With the temperature being about 29 degrees Celsius, it will be a hot day in Kingstown. During the day, there is also some risk of rain.
At the Arnos Vale Ground, with something on the surface for both the batsmen and bowlers, another competitive clash beckons. While the bowlers should enjoy some movement, at this venue, changing pace would undoubtedly be a handy tool.
Before going berserk, the batsmen will need to get their eyes in, and this ploy has so far reaped the rewards. Throughout the game, the pitch is not supposed to change much. With 80-90 being a respectable target at this venue, both teams will look to bat first.
