Match Preview – Qualifier 1: Dark View Explorers vs La Soufriere Hikers

May 27, 2021

It’s not quite do or die yet for both these teams, but who wouldn’t want a straight path to the finals? That is what’s at stake in this match.


In The Spotlight

Hikers batting all of a sudden has gone to outrageous heights. Salvan Browne is clicking and Dillon Douglas is currently on another planet. Othneil Lewis has been chipping in with big lusty blows. Maloney has fallen off the boil somewhat, but you can never count out quality players. Hikers did a wonderful job with the ball when they last played each other two days ago. Hikers know, they will have to repeat that bowling performance else they can be in for a large total from the Explorers.

Explorers have had their best VPL to date and they will want to get into their first finals. To do that, they have a massive opposition in Hikers to take down. They have the fire power to do it with the bat. They’ll be worried with how easy the Hikers made light work of their run chase a few days ago. You’ll pretty much say the team that bowls the best will win this affair.
