This season, the Salt Pond Breakers have been invincible and have three wins so far in three games. The Breakers, riding in the form of their captain, Sunil Ambris, did not miss a beat with a bat in their side. When required, even their bowling unit has stepped up, with Johnson being one of the best performers on the squad.
The La Soufriere Hikers have won only one game. Hikers have not been able to get going with the bat, and in this tournament, they have posted a string of low scores. With Douglas impressing in the death overs, their bowling unit did a little better.
The Hikers are the underdogs against a powerful side of the Salt Pond Breakers who have a well-rounded team for this game. The Breakers, however, who are on track for a top-two finish, should be careful not to become complacent.
Both teams should give their all in what should be an exciting game, with two valuable points up for grabs.
The weather at the venue has not been nice, and rains are forecast for the whole day. The temperature is going to be around 29 degrees Celsius.
Since this is the second match of the day, a reasonably high-scoring game is on the cards. Although it is predicted that the bowlers will have a say in the proceedings, before going high, the batsmen will need to bide their time in the centre.
Towards the end of the innings, wickets in hand will be crucial, with 90 at this venue being par. With rain likely to play a role as well, after winning the toss, both teams could look to the chase.
