There are six teams competing in the Vincy T10 Premier League and a total of 30 matches are going to be held in nine days. That means we are going to have a lot of matches come at us thick and fast, three a day on most days! Plenty of options for betting as well as Dream11 contests as well!

The second match of the Vincy Premier League T10 is going to be played between the La Soufriere Hikers and the Botanic Gardens Rangers. Desron Maloney is the marquee player for the Hikers while Kesrick Williams (of the notebook writing fame) is going to be the marquee player for the Botanic Gardens Rangers.

La Soufriere Hikers vs Botanic Gardens Rangers is going to be played at the Arnos Vale Sporting Complex in Kingstown, St Vincent on the 22nd of May 2020.

La Soufriere Hikers

The La Soufriere Hikers do not have a current West Indian international on their roster and that may seem like a drawback to start off with. Cricket, though, is very rarely decided by just one player and this should be seen as an opportunity for the La Soufriere Hikers to make their name.

Desron Maloney is rated as the best batsman of the side and will carry a lot of responsibility on his shoulders. He has a reputation for being a big-hitter and will bet at the top of the order. Salvan Brown is also another batsman that seems to have something special and will be a key member of the batting lineup as well. 

Dean Browne and Rayan Williams are the two all-rounders that will be integral to this side. We would have both them in our Dream 11 team for sure. 

Othneil Lewis is the standout bowler of this squad. We think the Hikers will need their all-rounders to bowl with conviction in every single match otherwise the bowling attack could be found out a little.

Botanic Gardens Rangers

Kesrick Wiliams is a member of the current international West Indies T20 squad, is a regular on the CPL circuit, and has played limited-overs matches around the world. His experience is invaluable and he will lead the bowling attack for the Botanic Gardens Rangers. 

He is also of the quality that needs to be taken seriously by every single opponent in the Vincy Premier League T10. Casnel Morris and Kimali Williams are two other bowlers that will play a big part as the tournament moves on. 

Oziko Williams a decent wicketkeeper-batsman and a far better choice than his opposite number when it comes to Dream11 teams. Romel Currency is rated as the best batsman of this side while Kevin Abraham and Kenneth Dember are the all-rounders holding the team together. 

We like the squad that the Botanic Gardens Rangers have coming into the tournament and think they could be ones to watch out for.     

Pitch and Conditions

The weather forecast for the first match is excellent and we do not anticipate any rain playing spoilsport. That being said, the weather changes very quickly in the islands so never say never! The pitch at the St Vincent cricket ground is expected to be flat with a lot of runs in it. 

There is nothing that the bowlers will get and they will have to utilize their change of pace as the primary weapon. 

Our Prediction

We think the Botanic Gardens Rangers have the better squad to start out the tournament. The current form of these players is a big unknown at the moment and so we can only go by what is seen on paper. It appears as the Rangers have a very good chance of winning.

Bet on the Botanic Gardens Rangers to win.  (1.72 on Betway at the time of writing).
