Fort Charlotte Strikers vs Dark View Explorers

It is a miracle that the Dark View Explorers have a chance of qualifying for the semi-final even though they have won just two of their eight matches so far. Some poor luck and bad judgment on the part of the Grenadine Divers have opened the door for them to take part on VPL Finals Day. 

Their opponents in this match are not so lucky. The Fort Charlotte Strikers have been the worst team on display and have won just one match so far. They are going to be completing the formalities as their time in the Vincy Premier league 2020 ends after this match.

Fort Charlotte Strikers vs Dark View Explorers VPL T10 2020 is going to be played at the Arnos Vale Sporting Complex, Kingstown, St Vincent on the 30th of May 2020.

Match Preview

Fort Charlotte Strikers

Seven losses from eight games do paint a pretty picture about the Fort Charlotte Strikers. They have been the worst team on display by a fair margin. Interestingly, the only game that they have won so far came against the Dark View Explorers.

A win in this match against the Dark View Explorers is not going to do anything for the Strikers own prospects but it will throw a spanner in the plans of the Explorers.

For the Fort Charlotte Strikers to win, Gidron pope and Kirton Lavia are the two batsmen that must score runs freely. They both demoted themselves in the previous match, a move that makes no sense whatsoever considering the lack of depth in the batting overall.

These two and Ronal Scott are the batsmen to hope something from.

Sealroy Wiliams is the best bowler on the Fort Charlotte Strikers team. He and Kirton Lavia could help cause an upset by picking up some early wickets against the Explorers.

Dark View Explorers

The Dark View Explorers came into the tournament with a fair bit of hope. Lindon James, the man leading them, had a reputation for being a fearsome batsman but he has not been able to deliver. The other players such as Shammon Hooper or Kody Horne have also been disappointments. 

Now, with a chance to reach the semi-finals, the dark view Explorers have all the motivation they need. The question is whether they are going to be bring their best at this late stage of the tournament.

Sealron Williaams, Lindon James, and Deron Greaves are going to be leading the bowling attack for the Dark View Explorers. With a loss against the Fort Charlotte Strikers already, the task ahead of the Explorers is not an easy one.

Pitch and Conditions

The weather has been very good for the majority fo the tournament. There is a little bit of rain around but nothing that should affect the matches majorly. The pitch is much slower than it was at the start of the VPL and as a result, the run-scoring has come down a bit too.

Scores of around 90 should be considered par.

Our Prediction

These are two poor teams that have proven themselves to be worse than our expectations on many occasions. It is difficult to choose between them but we actually think the Fort Charlotte Strikers are the team to back. They have beaten the dark View Explorers earlier in the tournament and could do the same.

Bet on the Fort Charlotte Strikers to win.
