Match Preview – 33rd Match – 5th Place Playoff: Bay Leaf Blasters vs Clove Challengers
Clove Challengers and Bay Leaf Blasters will play against each other for pride and not to finish in the final spot of the tournament.
In the Spotlight
Clove Challengers will have had higher aspirations of playing in the other matches of the day but finds themselves in this position due to the failure of their batsmen to score good scores regularly. Challengers who have in their team some powerful and clinical batsmen did not consistently put in good performances with the bat. Their bowlers have held their own, but the lack of runs was to the detriment of the team. In this 5th place match the Challengers would be expecting a good team performance to finish one spot above the bottom of the table.
Bay Leaf Blasters will be asking themselves why they are in this match when they had two opportunities in the previous two days and blew both of them. In both matches the batters did not perform to expectation causing them to be out of the semi-finals. Their batters lacked fluency in their innings and was not able to accelerate at the critical moments. Their bowlers have been a mix bag in the tournament and would be depending on their team for a better all-round performance if they are to finish above the Challengers on the final table
The weather is forecasted to be sunny and with a slim chase of rain.
Batsmen have enjoyed themselves all tournament and the wicket produced for this match should provide little assistance to the bowlers.
