Match Preview – 4th Match VPL 4: Dark View Explorers vs Fort Charlotte Strikers

March 19, 2022

Last year’s runner up is up against the new and improved Fort Charlotte Strikers. Both teams have an intriguing rivalry, with none really having the upper hand over the next. Explorers however have a star studded team to chose from – so much so that it’s tough for anyone to predict what their batting line up would be like.


In The Spotlight

Explorers batting would be in the spotlight. A team so heavy on batting that they can afford to hit out from ball one and not attempt to stop. Their team is packed with spinners and lacking a bit in the fast bowling department. However, they do have the services of Darius Martin this time, who last featured in the 1st edition of the VPL. Martin is one of the most outstanding fast bowlers in St Vincent and the Grenadines and may just be the missing piece in the Explorers armoury.

Strikers on the other hand have one of the best bowling line up in the tournament. A perfect balance of pace of spin and they would be confident that they can defend any total or restrict their opposition to par totals. Their batting is heavily reliant on Miles Bascombe and they will be out to prove that they can have contributions from the others. Joshua James will be vital to the Strikers, packing power with the batting and able to bowl some heavy balls.
