In the Spotlight
Strikers started with the tournament with two victories and have since suffered successive defeats and will be hoping to get back to winning ways. Their batsmen have performed well to date Lendon Lawrence leads the way with the bat. Lawrence heads into the match with his most recent knock being 64 and would have hopes of continuing his good form. The bowlers will be looking for more consistency to aid their team’s cause.
Ginger Generals who has identical record as their opponents will be looking to gain separation from their opponents on the table when they face off against each other. The Generals openers have failed to get their team off to a good start in their previous game and would hope to come good this time. The batting efforts are led by Roland Cato and Wavell Benjamin, they will need the other top order batsmen to make more meaningful contribution with the bat. The bowlers did not have the best of game in their previous match and will be asked to put in a better effort.
It is expected to be sunny and produce good conditions for cricket.
The pitch should continue to be a good one for batting with little assistance provided to the bowlers.
