Match Details:

The 16th match of the 2020 St Lucia T10 Blast will be played between Soufriere Sulphur City Stars and Mon Repos Stars at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Ground in Gros Islet, St Lucia.

The match starts at 2:30 PM local time (12:00 AM IST – July 1) (6:30 PM GMT). This match can be streamed live on Fan code.

Preview:

The Mon Repos Stars seem to be on a high having won their second game of the tournament in three attempts. They kick-started their campaign with a huge win and despite coming across a small hiccup, they found their winning track again. They have a great chance of making it three wins in four in the tournament as they face the Soufriere Sulphur City Stars next up.

The City Stars have been underwhelming this season, losing both their games by a huge margin and thus not making a strong case for them among the top teams. They haven’t found their balance yet and it is unlikely they might in this fixture, which puts the Repos Stars in the driver’s seat.

Weather Condition/Report:

Weather conditions in Gros Islet are expected to be pleasant for a game of cricket. No rain interruptions are expected but the conditions could remain a bit cloudy.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The Daren Sammy Stadium seems to be a pretty high-scoring venue for the T10 format as the average first-innings score in the last five games is in excess of 100.

Top Picks

Shervin Charles chipped in with a half-century in the opening game and in the other two games, he contributed vital cameos to help his side. He is without a doubt the best player among both units. His opening partner Sabinus Emmanuel has done a similar job as well and is worth having in the side.

Hazel Charlery chipped in with a crucial spell in the last game, picking three wickets. He seems to be in great form and should be a safe choice for vice-captaincy. There’s plenty of individual talent to pick from the Repos Stars, which includes Keon Gaston, who registered figures of 4/9 in a losing cause a few days back, but is still continuing the good work with the ball.

Bradely Tisson has been in terrific touch, who chipped in with a vital 22-run cameo in their last game. Now that they got a good break for this fixture, the likes of Dalius Monrose and Denver Didier could chip in with handy contributions as well. Shani Mesmain contributes with the bat and ball, making her a very important addition among the Sulphur City Stars players.
