Match Preview – 15th Match: Fort Charlotte Strikers vs Botanical Gardens Rangers

May 21, 2021

Normally, it’s Fort Charlotte Strikers that plays catch up but this time, they’re sitting in a good position while Rangers are in pretty deep trouble. Another loss and it’s pretty much over for them..


In The Spotlight

Nothing is going in Rangers favour. Only thing that’s left for them to do is throw caution to the wind and hope for the best. Bowlers that are usually reliable and being taken to the cleaners – it surely isn’t blooming in their garden for the time being.

Strikers are finally enjoying some VPL success and they’ll want that to continue. Another win puts them one step closer to a first time spot in the playoffs. They seemed quite upbeat before the match yesterday, and carried that energy into the match. They are starting to believe – that’s usually where great things start.


Players To Watch

Miles Bascombe (Strikers) – Scored a magnificent half century to see his team to victory and signal a return to form. Look out for more destruction.

Urnel Thomas (Rangers) – Played some top innings in the inaugural edition and help his side out of trouble in various situations. Rangers desperately needs something similar to happen.
