The Laborie Bay Royals were off to a poor start in the tournament, losing to the North Raiders having put on a mediocre effort with the bat. They face a much difficult task in their next game, where they lock horns with the Central Castries Mindhood, who are off to a fairly decent start and are one of the favorites to go all the way alongside Cannon Blasters.
They smashed home a brilliant 129 runs in their opening game and did decently with the ball against the Cannon Blasters, but on the day, their opponents were just too good. They are keen on getting back to winning ways with a strong performance in this game.
Weather conditions are expected to be a little gloomy, with rain threat looming around the horizon. However, it might not interrupt the game as the rains are expected to arrive well before the start of the game.
This ground is proving to be a belter of a batting track, with the average first innings score above 100. Teams chasing have not had a decent outing and they would prefer batting first if they win the toss.
Average first innings score: 116
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 3; Lost – 7
