The matches on Saturday in the Vincy Premier T10 League kick-off when the Dark View Explorers face the La Soufriere Hikers. The Explorers, who took on the Fort Charlotte Strikers in the 3rd game on Friday, comfortably chased down the target of 76. They needed 8.3 overs for the loss of only two wickets in the pursuit of the target. The Hikers were even more dominant during their game against Botanical Gardens Rangers where they chased down 71 in just 5.4 overs at the cost of one wicket.
The morning match on Saturday is expected to be played under partial cloud cover.
The tournament opener was the least scoring match out of the three games held on Friday. It seemed as if there was some help for the bowlers in the morning game due to an early start. Considering how the chase went during the first match, there is a possibility of a total of around 80 being defended.

Kensley Joseph opened the batting in the first match and got a decent start. He has got the ability to score big runs at a quick pace.

We expect both teams to retain their playing XIs from the first match as they registered comfortable wins on Friday. Only major miss across both sides on the first day seemed to be Ojay Matthews. However, their collective bowling effort by the Dark View Explorers in the first match is enough to see him remain on the bench.
The Dark View Explorers are expected to register their 2nd successive win of the tournament.
