The 3rd match of the Super50 Cup 2021 will be played between Leeward Islands Hurricanes and Barbados Pride on 10th February at Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua.
The match is scheduled to start at 1:30 PM local time (11:00 PM IST) and it will be streamed live on Fancode.
Leeward Islands Hurricanes and Barbados have had similar starts to their 2021 Super50 Cup. The former played in the inaugural match of the competition, where they suffered a defeat against Windward Islands. Their bowling unit let them down, as the target of 285 was always going to be difficult to chase down here in Antigua.
As for the Pride, they met Guyana in their first game. Their bowlers did a good job to restrict the Guyanese to only 235. The match was eventually curbed down to 29.3 overs, in which Barbados were set a target of 148. Their batsmen, however, had a horrific day as they could only manage to score 91 runs. For obvious reasons, this game is extremely crucial for both teams.
