The Match 21 of Vincy Premier T10 League 2020 will be played between La Soufriere Hikers and Botanic Garden Rangers at the Arnos Valley Sporting Complex in Kingstown.
The match starts at 12:30 AM local time (10:00 PM IST) (4:30 PM GMT). The match can be streamed live on Fan code.
The extravaganza of Vincy Premier League T10 continues its run as La Soufriere Hikers will lock horns with Botanic Garden Rangers in the 22nd clash of the Vincy Premier T10 League. West Indies international Kesrick Williams will be the one to look out for because of his vital experience.
With four wins in their first five games, La Soufriere Hikers are currently sitting second in the points table. In their previous match against Salt Pond Breakers, Hikers registered a comfortable eight-wicket victory. Having registered three wins in their last three games, Hikers would be eager to add another triumph in their bag.
Botanic Garden Rangers, in their previous game, also registered a comfortable eight-wicket victory against Dark View Explorers. After restricting Explorers to a total of 80 runs, Botanic Garden Rangers hunted down the target in the ninth over with eight wickets in hand.
In the previous clash between La Soufriere Hikers and Botanic Garden Rangers, the former had registered a comprehensive nine-wicket victory after restricting the latter to a total of 70 runs. Hikers had chased down the total in the sixth over itself.
The temperatures are expected to be around 26-31 degrees Celcius with almost no possibility of rain to intervene during the course of play.
Both the teams have performed well while chasing in their previous matches. However, teams are stitching totals in excess of 100 on a frequent basis recently. If either side can rack up a dominant total on the board, the chasing team will suffer difficulty in the second innings. The pitch will be favourable for spin as well as pace bowlers as the game progresses.
Average first innings score: 93 (Last six matches of the tournament)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 3; Lost – 3
