Two of the three winning teams on the opening day of Vincy Premier T10 League 2020; Dark View and La Soufriere Hikers will lock horns on Saturday morning. Both the teams chased down the targets over 70 quite quickly without sweating much. The Dark View Explorers took down Fort Charlotte Strikers’ total of 75 in only 8.3 overs. On the other hand, the La Soufriere Hikers sealed a 9-wicket victory over the Botanical Gardens Rangers by chasing down the target of 71 in only 5.4 overs.
The game between Explorers and Hikers is unlikely to be affected by rain.
The 8:30 AM local time start at the Arnos Valley Sporting Complex has ensured the bowlers got something to cheer in the morning match. On Friday, the spinners seemed to have got help from the pitch with the ball holding a bit due to the moisture. The pitch seemed to have got better in the latter quarter.

Shammon Hooper neither got to bowl nor got batting but managed to hold on to a catch. He could come up with good performance if he gets his chances. Desron Maloney was at his destructive best smashing four fours and three sixes during his unbeaten 41 which came in only 20 deliveries. Kensley Joseph will be important in the fantasy team as he is opening with the bat. He scored 13 off 13 during their successful chase on Friday. Sealron Williaams was introduced as the 5th bowler of Explorers where he ended up picking a wicket on the first ball of his both overs.

(Note: Players with 9 credits or less can only be chosen as the 12th man. This feature will only come into play if one of 11 players of your team is not the part of the playing XI.)
Dean Browne was a most expensive bowler for his team during the first game conceding 22 runs in two overs. He still needs to be picked in the fantasy team as he bowls his both overs and bats in top five for the Hikers. We did not pick him in our fantasy XI No.1 but roped in for the suggested team No.2.
The Explorers are expected to hand the Hikers their first defeat of the tournament.
