We have now reached the second day of the competition and along with the fans of the gentlemen’s game, the tipsters are equally elated as the cricketing action has resumed after a long time and so has cricket betting. Now that we are here let us talk about match number five of the ongoing Vincy Premier T10 League, which will be played between Fort Charlotte Strikers and Salt Pond Breakers at the Arnos Vale Sports Complex Ground in St Vincent on May 23, Saturday.

Fort Charlotte Strikers:

For innings’ which last just 60 balls, it’s so important for a team to put runs on the board from the beginning itself. Gidron Pope did exactly what the situation wanted out of him, having propelled Strikers’ innings with a 28-run knock at the top of the order, which included two boundaries and a maximum. Along with Ronald Scott, he stitched up a 34-run stand, which proved vital for posting a 75-run total at the end of the 10th over. Pope is our man for the next match too, hope you do not overlook him.There’s hardly anything to boast about when a team not only fails to defend 75 runs in 10 overs, but also with 9 balls to spare, such has been Strikers’ display in the previous match, but there has been an exception. Williams, having bowled two overs, checked their run-flow immensely, giving way just 11 runs and also dismissing Deron Greaves. When every other bowler was hammered, it was Williams who put up a spirited fight, making him an asset for the team for the rest of the league.

Salt Pond Breakers:

Just when the Salt Pond Breakers’ innings witnessed a massive collapse from 17/1 to 23/4, Urnel walked down to the middle of the 22-yard strip and staged a match-winning act. It was not a typical cameo innings, but a brisk 15-ball stay, scoring 20 which included one boundary and two maximums. Most importantly, he guided his team to a victory which looked most uncertain halfway through the innings, stitching up a 22-run stand along with Benniton Stapleton. With an opportunity to take the pole position in the league standings, Thomas is key to Salt Pond Breakers’ fortune in the upcoming game. Bowlers might get just 12 balls to showcase their skills in a T10 game, but it’s their capability which permits them to leave a mark in the limited time at their disposal. Take the case of Wesrick, who bowled just six balls in the last match - more importantly, the last six balls of the innings. Yes, he conceded seven runs, but picked up three wickets in the last three balls of the match. Incredible, isn’t it? What more can you expect from a bowler. There’s no doubt that Wesrick is Salt Pond Breakers’ trump card in the league and no way we are going to ignore him.
