Match Preview – 17th Match: Dark View Explorers vs La Soufriere Hikers

May 23, 2021

Hikers suffered their first loss of the tournament, but is still in a very commanding position. One more win and their spot in the playoffs is secure. A win for Explorers will also secure their spot in the playoffs.

 

In The Spotlight

Hikers lost Maloney and Browne early in the run chase and was strangled as apart from Dillon Douglas, there wasn’t much threat to the innings. This would be the biggest worry for any Hikers fan going down into the back end of the tournament. Beniton Stapleton continues to be the rock of their bowling attack, being top of the bowling chart.

Explorers are matched on points with Hikers and are playing good cricket. They have a very good batting lineup and one that can put tremendous pressure on any bowling attack. Luke Wilson continues to stand tall with the ball and could very well prove to be the difference between both sides.
