Match Preview: Cinnamon Pacers vs Bayleaf Blasters – 7th Match Spice Isle T10 3rd Edition
Cinnamon Pacers winless in their opening two matches of the tournament will face off against Bayleaf blasters who had mixed results in their open two matches.
Cinnamon Pacers batting has been under-par for the second match in a row and will be hoping that their other batsmen other than Nickozi St. Hillaire can come to the party. St. Hilliare had a second good game with the bat scoring 49 not out in their previous encounter which included 6 maximums.
The Pacers bowlers have been serviceable in their opening matches; however, they would need their batsmen to place a respectable score on the board for them to work with. Larry Edward bowled the first maiden of the season in the first over of the second inning bowling to Andre Fletcher.
The Bayleaf Blasters who won their opening match against Saffron Strikers on match day one lost their second match to Clove Challengers and will be looking to get back in winning form against the Pacers. Captain Devon Smith will ask his batsmen to put in a better in this match, their score of 82 for 6 off their 10 overs was not sufficient for their bowlers to defend.
The Blasters bowlers have done well to contain their opponents’ batsmen in the first two games and will look for more of the same in their third match of the tournament.
Two teams desperate for a victory should set the stage for an entertaining match up.
