Cricket Betting Tips & Match Predictions: Super50 Cup 2021- Leeward Islands vs Jamaica Scorpions – Match 12
The 12th match of the Super50 Cup 2021 will be played between Leeward Islands and Jamaica Scorpions at the Coolidge Cricket Ground, Antigua.
Current Form Leeward Islands:
Leeward Islands are currently occupying the 4th position on points table with 1 victory in 4 games played so far in the tournament.
They were defeated comprehensively in their last fixture against Trinidad and Tobago Red Force. Batting first in the game, Leeward Islands lost Ross Powell early on in the innings. Kieran Powell played well for his 29 off 51 and his partnership with Nitish Kumar looked promising. But once these two were dismissed, the middle order found themselves in deep trouble and could not cope up with the mounting pressure. Low scoring rate coupled with quick dismissals derailed the Leeward Islands innings. In the end, they were bowled out for 129. Ravi Rampaul was the pick of the bowlers as he removed three batsmen at the cost of 17 runs in 7 overs.
Chasing 129, Kjorn Ottley and Evin Lewis provided a decent start to Trinidad and Tobago Red Force. Evin Lewis was dismissed at 28 by Quinton Boatswain. Post that, Jason Mohammed stitched an important match winning partnership with Ottley and won the game for his team by 9 wickets.
Current Form Jamaica Scorpions:
Jamaica Scorpions are really struggling in the tournament and they have not won a single game so far. In their last game against Windward Islands, Jamaica Scorpions lost the toss and were asked to field first. Andre Fletcher got Windward off to a great start by striking 60 runs off just 51 deliveries. Sunil Ambris and Kevin Stoute also played remarkable knocks of 28 and 45 respectively. However, it was the phenomenal striking by Keron Cottoy that changed the course of the game and turned it completely in favour of Windward Islands. He struck 64 off just 47 deliveries and as a result Windward Islands reached a total of 260 for 8 in 50 overs.
Chasing 260, Jamaica Scorpions lost their top 4 batters within the 13th over. Rovman Powell was among the ones to be dismissed early on and with that Jamaican hopes took a beating in the game. Fabian Allen and Andre McCarthy tried to steady the ship with their knocks of 39 and 55 respectively but they were left with too much to achieve. In the end, Jamaica Scorpions were bowled out for 168, losing the match by a huge margin of 92 runs.
