Match Preview: Exhibition Match – President’s XI vs Botanical Garden Rangers

November 21, 2020

The President’s XI is up against VPLT10 2.0 third place team, Botanical Garden Rangers. Rangers will be looking to finish off their campaign with a consolation win while the President’s XI will look to remain unbeaten from their win in the last edition.


In The Spotlight

Rangers have lost their last 4 matches, and ultimately, signalling their exit from the tournament. They will be hurting and will want to take revenge on their next opponent. Can it be one final throw of the dice to see the explosive lineup of Shallow, Stewart, Cottoy & Dember? The Rangers may rue all the mix up between the wickets that pretty much played it’s part in them being on the losing side. Can we see the opening pair broken up?

The President’s XI has said they are here to win, and not just showing up for the fun. Their team is full of experience and mixed with the energetic youths of the nation. The batting will be led by Miles Bascombe, Romel Currency, Oneil Thomas & captain Kishore Shallow. The bowling will be led by the willy Dyke Cato and seam/spin of Deighton Butler. Under estimate these veterans and youths at your own peril.



The weather is set to be partly cloudy but the chances of rain falling is extremely low.


Pitch Conditions

The pitch looks in good condition for T10 cricket, good for batting and not much assistance for the seamers.
