Match Preview: Saffron Strikers vs Cinnamon Pacers – 16th Match Spice Isle T10 3rd Edition
The Cinnamon Pacers and Saffron Strikers are in search of a much sought after victory to push their way upwards on the table.
The Strikers have been a mixed bag in the tournament, this is reflected in their position on the table with 2 wins and 2 losses. The Strikers lost their previous match against the Nutmeg Warriors losing their first 4 wickets with 3 runs on the board.
The key for the Strikers batting will be for their openers Rhyson Williams and Gian Benjamin to get them off to a good start with the bat. Both openers have 50’s next to their name in the tournament but will need more consistency if their team is to be successful in the tournament. Javel St. Paul the hard hitting allrounder has provided a boost in the back end of the inning with his big hitting but would need more from the top order batsmen.
Cinnamon Pacers won their previous encounter against the Ginger Generals and will have the belief that that can make it two wins in two matches. Their batting has shown promise in the previous encounter by posting 108 runs. Desron Maloney who smashed 4 sixes in one over will be looked at to carry his form into this match. It is an important match up as a victory for either team helps their chances of finishing in the top for at the end of the group stage of the tournament.
