The first eliminator of the Vinci Premier League will be played between the Salt Pond Breakers and the Botanical Garden Rangers at the Arnos Vale Sporting Complex, St. Vincent.
The match is scheduled to begin at 10:30 am (8:00 pm IST) local time and can be streamed live on fancodes.
The top two teams Salt Pond Breakers and Botanical Garden Rangers will face face-to-face at the Vinci Premier League 1 Eliminator on Friday. In their last two meetings, both teams have won against each other, so this is going to be an interesting fight. Salt pond breakers being eliminated as table toppers will start as favorites in the 1st Eliminator.
However, his final two victories were not against the Botanical Garden Rangers and La Sauerreier hikers. Apart from Sunil Ambarees and Ryan John, none of the other batsmen have scored big runs, so it will test their character in this match. Jeremy Layne and Dallorne Johnson are the bowlers’ picks for SPB and have 10 and 9 wickets respectively to their name.
On the other hand, the Botanical Garden Rangers are second in the table with 11 points. They started the tournament on an outstanding note by winning 3 consecutive matches, their fourth match being abandoned against FCS, later in the 5th and 6th matches where they came out on top defeating GRD and SPB respectively.
But in their final two matches, they did not play up to the mark and lost the matches that pushed them to 2nd place. Hiron Shallow, Emmanuel Stewart and Keran Cottoy are the main batting pillars for the BGR upfront, while Kimille Williams continues to take wickets in every match. It is going to be an exciting match as the two strong teams take on each other.
