Match Preview – 18th Match: Grenadines Divers vs Fort Charlotte Strikers
Divers are coming off the back of a big win against table toppers Hikers.

For Strikers, another win is all they need to book their spot.
In The Spotlight
Divers got top innings from Asif Hooper and Kevin Abraham. They were both in sublime touch and all bodes well for them heading into this match, as the form of Shem Browne is good and Kadir Nedd has played good at times. Their bowling was even more impressive in the middle overs where they strangled their opponent. They have the momentum and seems a well oiled machine heading into this game.
Strikers are on a roll, winning their last 3 games. It’s unfamiliar territory for them, but their team spirit is on a high and their body language in the field has been different. They also enjoyed a blitz in the powerplay which is a rarity for them, thanks to the make shift opener Cosmus Hackshaw. Strikers bowling has been on top of their game and they only need their batsmen to back them, or give them something to work with.
Grenadines Divers: W L W
Fort Charlotte Strikers: W W W
