It will be another one of those interesting contests in the St Lucia T10 Blast when Choiseul Clay Pots take on Mabouya Constrictors. Although the sample size is quite small, the former look to be a better team at this stage of the tournament. They are comfortably placed at the third spot on the points table after registering an easy victory in the only game that they have played so far.
For the Constrictors, on the other hand, things have been a little different. They were completely bamboozled in the first game that they played and thus registered a huge loss. In the second game, they just won by a slight margin and therefore, added two points to their tally. Yet, they are placed sixth on the table with an NRR of -2.650. They’ve got to win this game at all costs if they are to climb up the ladder.
It is predicted to be a cloudy day in Gros Islet. The maximum temperature will go up to 31 C while the minimum will be 27 C. The chances of precipitation are quite low.
With the humidity levels extremely high, the pitch might quicken up and the ball is expected to come nicely onto the bat. However, the strong winds will challenge both the batsmen and the bowlers. Teams must analyse the angles well before the game.
