Caribbean T20 League

Match 11- SLK vs BR

 

Preview

SLK and BR are going to clash for the second time in this edition of the Caribbean T20 League. The match is scheduled at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia on Friday, Saturday 9th. 

BR has displayed a phenomenal team spirit this season and have won all three matches they played so far and are occupying the top spot of the league table. On the other hand, SLK have won just one out of their three matches in their inaugural match against JAM. St. Lucia-based franchise are in fourth place in the Caribbean T20 League points table. They have two back-to-back losses in their first two matches and a win in the third match. Now the stage is all set for them to fight hard and defeat the best-performing team in this league to regain their confidence. 

In their 4th match of the league where they clashed, BR emerged victorious on SLK by 11 runs. The match was affected by rain and hence DLS method was also applied. In the first innings, BR scored 162 runs, losing just 4 wickets. The top-order batters influenced a pretty high-scoring target. Rahkeem Cornwall and Kyle Mayers played astonishing knocks of 32 and 36 respectively. Later BR skipper David Miller smashed 24 runs off just 15 balls to anchor the innings and put on a target of 163 runs on the opponents.

The match was reduced to 9 overs in the second innings because of a cloudburst. SLK’s top-order batters failed miserably except skipper Faf du Plessis. He smashed 47 runs off just 20 balls with Alzarri Joseph also contributing 29 runs off 18 balls. In the end, it was just 11 runs which resulted in their defeat. Kyle Mayers was the star of the bowling side as he scalped all four wickets of the opponents.
