Match Preview: La Soufriere Hikers vs Grenadines Divers – 9th Match VPL 5

April 13, 2023

Hikers were back to full strength in their last game and they put on a show. Jonathan Carter and Dillon Douglas were trying to out score each other. If it’s one thing they do better than all the other teams, is taking on attacks and they succeed more often than not. They broke their own record for the highest team score in VPL in their last match, which indicates that they will be coming into this match looking to blast away. Their bowling was a cause for concern in the last match, as a total of 156 was almost over hauled. Two of their key bowlers didn’t bowl in that match, Larry Edwards and Andre Hunte, which almost cost them the match.

Grenadines Divers are down on confidence as they are last on the table. They have a lot of quality players in their line up but they’re not firing at the moment. All they need is one comprehensive win and they can possibly make a comeback out of no where. Expect to see a jig in the batting line up for this match. The majority of their bowlers are bowling well, with captain Hooper, Dean Browne, Richie Richards and key death bowler Wesrick Strough all already putting in good performances. They just need the batting to fire and they’ll definitely put on a show for the fans.
