Match Preview – 19th Match: Salt Pond Breakers vs Botanical Gardens Rangers
Rangers cannot qualify for the playoffs, but their goal now will be to cause an upset along the way for a playoff hopeful.
In The Spotlight
Breakers have lost their last three games, a rarity across all VPL editions. They have lost their way if Ambris doesn’t score big. They have other dependable batsmen like Thomas and Walker. Walker looked in good touch in his last outing and may get a promotion back up the order. Their bowling still remains good and not a major concern.
Nothing is going Rangers way and it will take a lot of good fortune to get them back on track. It’s all about letting the youths showcase their talent now, and who knows, an upset might be around the corner. Rangers have been plagued by injuries and they’re uncertain of their XI until match time.
