Match Preview – 9th Match: Salt Pond Breakers vs Fort Charlotte Strikers
Fort Charlotte Strikers can’t afford to have another loss so early in the tournament, so this is a crucial game for them. A win will do them the world of good. For the Breakers, it’s a match to put them level on the points table with their greatest rivals.
In The Spotlight
Salt Pond Breakers have the winning mentality, which they’ve on countless occasions won games where they were behind. They’re coached by Olanzo Jackson, a fierce and tough competitor who knows how to win. He’ll no doubt have had a big part to play in the way the Breakers men carry themselves. Look out for the duel between Ray Jordan and Sunil Ambris. Ambris has shown the tendency to impose himself on the faster bowlers in the tournament more than any other batsman.
Fort Charlotte Strikers had another horrible outing with the bat in their most recent match. They started too slow and was behind – the top 5 overs of the innings is what usually kills them from the contest. They’ll have to right that wrong to challenge a powerhouse such as the Breakers.
