In the 5th match of the Vincy Premier League, Fort Charlotte Strikers and Salt Pond Breakers will square each other off. As they lost their first match against La Soufriere Hikers by 7 wickets, the Fort Charlotte Strikers did not have a great start to their campaign. Their batters played at a close run-a-ball strike pace, which in this style was not enough. Bowling was spectacular, as their bowlers took the game to the last over. With this defeat, with a run-rate of -0.395, they are in 5th position in the standings.
Defending champions Salt Pond Breakers, on the other hand, began their campaign with a victory over Dark View Explorers. They won the match by 39 runs convincingly. They are at the top of the table with 2 points and an outstanding run-rate of +3,900, because of the wide margin. One of the big plays of the game was Ryan John’s explosive batting. They look like a very balanced team, having the likes of experienced Sunil Ambris and talented Delorn Johnson in their squad, and are expected to continue the same momentum for the rest of the series.
The temperature will be about 27 degrees Celsius, and unfortunately for this match, there is an 80% risk of rainfall.
The track is favourable for the batters here at the Arnos Vale Sporting Complex and has created a lot of high scoring matches. To restrict the runs, the bowlers need to work hard. Overall, this is the right track for this style, and if the rain offers a break, we can expect a high scoring match.
