Updated - Jul 7, 2020 11:53 am
The third-place playoff of the St. Lucia T10 Blast will be played between Gros Islet Cannon Blasters and Central Castries Mindoo Heritage at Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in St Lucia.
The match starts at 12:30 PM local time (10:00 PM IST) (4:30 PM GMT). This match can be streamed live on Fan Code.
The Gros Islet Cannon Blasters went without a defeat in seven games, but just when it mattered the most, the Mon Repos Stars defeated them in the semifinal. This restricts the best team in the tournament to a place in the 3rd-position playoff, where they will be locking horns with the Central Castries. This will come in as a tough game for the Central Castries, whose form has dipped drastically since entering the Super Four stages. The Cannon Blasters, who would’ve wanted to lay hands on the trophy, can now expect only a 3rd place finish and they definitely would not want to miss out on it.
The weather conditions are expected to be cloudy most of the time with no chance of rain. This could turn out to be one exciting game for the fans with temperatures in Gros Islet ranging from 26-31 degrees.
Teams batting first have been doing well in the tournament and considering a fact that the pitch is slowing down in recent times, this should be one good game between bat and ball.

The most prolific run-scorer in the tournament, Kimani Melius will remain a top choice for captaincy. Alongside him, his opening partner Tarryck Gabriel will contribute profusely with the bat and ball, making him an important player in this fixture. Stephen Naitram scored in excess of 150 runs in the tournament and could score big again. Dornan has been bowling brilliantly and will remain a top pick alongside Dalton Polius among all-rounders.
Tyrel Chicot picked up 8 wickets in the tournament and has been bowling economically. Dillan John and Keygan Arnold are other top picks among bowlers, who have been picking wickets regularly and are also contributing with the bat. Larry Edwards chipped in with a brilliant 2/10 spell in the last game in a losing case.
