Cricket Betting Tips & Match Predictions: Super50 Cup 2021 - Leeward Islands vs Barbados Pride - Match 3
The 3rd match of the Super50 Cup 2021 will be played between Leeward Islands and Barbados Pride at the Coolidge Cricket Ground, Antigua.
Current Form Leeward Islands:
Leeward Islands featured in the first match of the tournament and lost the game against Windward Islands by a margin of 31 runs. After winning the toss, Leeward Islands chose to field first. Quinton Boatswain provided the early breakthrough by dismissed a dangerous Kimani Melius for 19. Desron Maloney too was dismissed in the 8th over, leaving the scoreboard to 40 for 2. Post that Sunil Ambris and Kevin Stoute played superbly and collected 119 runs for the 3rd wicket partnership. Sunil Ambris made 70 off 86 deliveries while Kevin Stoute scored a phenomenal 86 off 96 balls. Emmanuel Stewart played a fine innings of 27 in the middle order. As a result of these batting performances, Windward Islands managed to put on a total of 284 on the board.
Kieran Powell of Leeward Islands failed to impress in the match as he was dismissed by Ryan John in the first over itself. Ross Powell played a fine knock of 46 off 52 balls before he was dismissed by Larry Edwards off a beautiful in-swinging delivery. Nitish Kumar in the middle order showed how to toy with the bowling unit as he smashed a century in no time. He made 112 off 106 balls that included two monster sixes. He kept Leeward Islands in the hunt for a long time before falling prey to Keron Cottoy. None of the lower middle order batters threatened to chase the total and Leeward Islands were bowled out for 253, losing the match by 31 runs.
Current Form Barbados Pride:
Barbados Pride have been defeated in a rain curtailed match against Guyana Jaguars by a huge margin of 56 runs.
After losing the toss, they were asked to field first by Guyana Jaguars. Assad Fudadin failed to fire at the top of the order and was dismissed for 5 by Ashley Nurse. Chandrapaul Hemraj played a fine knock of 35 in 26 deliveries before holing out to Chemar Holder off Holder’s bowling. This phase was followed by a sequence of dismissals in the middle order and at one point, things looked extremely difficult for the Guyana Jaguars. Shimron Hetmyer kept his nerve and switched on a counter attacking mode. He smashed the Barbados bowlers to all parts of the ground to make 80 runs off just 53 deliveries. Once he was dismissed in the 28th over, the Guyana innings got nowhere and they were bowled out for 235 in the 42nd over.
In reply, Barbados made a very cautious start. Kevin Sinclair bowled very well first up as he removed Justin Greaves for just 8 runs. He bowled economically and it resulted in Barbados batters trying adventurous shots and losing their wickets. Shamarh Brooks and Jonathan Carter tried to resurrect the Barbados innings after early wickets but Guyana bowlers were on a roll and did not allow any room to the batsmen to free their arms. Jason Holder and Roston Chase also lost their wicket without troubling the scorers much and Barbados pretty much lost the game there itself. In the end, they lost the rain affected match by 56 runs.
