Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: VPL T10 - Grenadine Divers vs Botanic Gardens Rangers - 3rd Place Play-off
The 3rd Place Play-off of the Vincy Premier T10 League 2020 will be played between Grenadine Divers and Botanic Gardens Rangers at the Arnos Vale Ground in St.Vincent.
While Grenadine Divers lost the first semi-final against Salt Pond Breakers by 5 wickets, Botanic Gardens Rangers suffred a loss against La Soufriere Hikers by 33 runs in the second semi-final.
For the Rangers, their batmen did a good job, especially openers Hyron Shallow and Kenneth Dember who added 50 runs within the first four overs and skipper Kesrick Williams who struck 22 off 10 balls.
But, their bowlers conceded as many as 150 runs to the Hikers and made it almost impossible for the batsmen to chase the target. All their bowlers went for plenty with Kimali Williams and Nigel Small being the most economical at 10 RPO.
For the Divers, Romano Pierre scored 22 off 18 balls and skipper Asif Hooper struck 32 off just 19 deliveries a strike rate of almost 170, including 3 fours and 2 sixes but there was no contribution at all from the following batsmen as the team could only manage 82.
Three wickets from Hooper ensured that the match went close but the best that they could do was to qualify for the third place playoff.
Botanic Garden Rangers are a better team on paper and are expected to win this game. That is, if they are able to recover from the demoralizing defeat against La Soufriere Hikers.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Botanic Gardens Rangers - Kesrick Williams (Marquee), Hyron Shallow, Romel Currency, Kenneth Dember, Atticus Browne, Oziko Williams, Kimali Williams, Kevin Abraham, Nigel Small, Casnel Morris, Ray Charles.
Grenadine Divers - Obed McCoy (Marquee), Asif Hooper, Shem Browne, Alex Samuel, Tijorn Pope, Romano Pierre, Wayne Harper, Geron Wyllie, Razie Browne, Richie Richards, Braxie Browne
