Match Preview: 5th Place Playoff – Grenadines Divers vs Fort Charlotte Strikers
Grenadines Divers will be dejected to find themselves playing for 5th place, as they could have easily made the playoffs hadn’t it been for losing some games where they had victory close in sight. The Strikers left their best Cricket a little to late, making their three highest scores of the tournament in their last 3 games.
In The Spotlight
Divers is on a low, losing their last 4 matches. They’ve gone back to old ways where their batting has been their downfall. Can they lift themselves, as they were earlier in the tournament, one last time? These shorter format are usually a momentum game and Divers doesn’t have that at the moment.
Strikers have the momentum coming in this match, winning their last two games in extremely convincing fashion, making you wonder where they were all along. Roland Cato and Sealroy Williams have been in strong form in the recent matches with Walker & Lavia also playing their part in the victories with the bat. The Strikers restricted the Explorers to 69 in their last match, the only team to get the Explorers batting to fall under 90 runs and they would be confident that they can make light work of the Divers batting line up.
