Match Preview: 10th Match – La Soufriere Hikers vs Dark View Explorers
La Soufriere Hikers, one of the teams of the previous VPL edition, has looked shaky in their first two outings. Dark View Explorers continue to bat well but they are still conceding a lot of runs.
In The Spotlight
Miles Bascombe was in full flow yesterday and put Explorers on the brink of their first win but they bucked under pressure after his dismissal and found themselves on the losing end again. They have conceded 138, 135 and 111 and that’s where they need to improve.
The Hikers would want their batting to get back to its free flowing best, as that’s the team’s strength. The bowling looks more rounded this time around so they have all the tools at their disposal to turn their fortunes around. They’ll be eager to have one of Maloney, Salvan Browne and Douglas scoring big today.
The weather is fair today with a slight chance of rain but there is no indication that we wouldn’t get a full match at this time.
The pitch is flat and will be offering no assistance to fast bowling. Change of pace and the spinners will be the order of the day for the bowling attack.
La Soufriere Hikers: Desron Maloney, Silvan Browne, Dillon Douglas, Kavem Hodge, Andre Hunte, Beniton Stapleton, Othneil Lewis, Jeremy Haywood, Rayan Williams, Anson Latchman, Nickie Antoine
Dark View Explorers: Lindon James, Deron Greaves, Miles Bascombe, Alick Athanaze, Dean Browne, Dromo Toney, Shamon Hooper, Sealron Williams, Jaheil Walters, Shaquille Browne, Jade Matthews
