BU vs SFE Match Prediction & Betting Tips - May 20, 2022
After a long tussle that last a little over a couple of weeks, we are into the back-end of the St. Lucia T10 Blast 2022 and things are looking extremely well poised at the moment. We are looking forward to two most-anticipated matches of the tournament, both to be played in the span of a couple of hours.
Up next in the tournament, Soufriere Sulphur City Stars are set to take on Babboneau Leatherbacks in the third-place playoff match. The match between the two sides is to be played at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet in St Lucia on 20th May 2022.
BU vs SFE Team Previews
Babboneau Leatherbacks were the best side of their group and that is evident by their top of the table finish. With three wins from four matches and a no-result, they were undefeated in the tournament before they lost in the semi-final match. Batting first in the semi-final, they could never get going as they lost wickets in bunches and eventually ended up with a total of just 51 runs. With such a modest total on the board, there wasn't much their bowlers could have done. Although they did fight hard and picked up five wickets, the total was a little too low to defend.
On paper, the Leatherbacks are a little too over-reliant on their top-order to get them to a decent total. Their bowling has been under-par so far and they will need their bowlers to step up once again. Bowlers have been good and will need to be at their best in this upcoming match too. If they can do that here, getting past them is going or be a very challenging task.
Babonneau Leatherbacks Playing 11
Alex Joseph, Anselm Gittens, Bradley Marquis, Caleb Thomas, Eugene Devon, J Cepal, Nehemiah Wilfred, Sanjay Hayle, Shervon Joseph, Steven Abraham, Zayee Antoine.
Soufriere Sulphur City Stars may have lost their previous match against the same side, they are by no means a lesser side. They did a pretty decent job in the group stage, winning three of their four matches, and will want to impose their supremacy on their group-mates with a win here in this match. They will be gutted to miss out on a semi-final spot as they lost that match to Mon Repos Stars by a narrow margin of three runs.
They will rely heavily on Julian Sylvester who has done exceedingly well in the competition so far. Apart from him too, they have had Shani Mesmain contribute with a couple of important knocks. They do look a little out of options in the bowling departments and that was apparent in the semi-final as well. If their bowling manages to step up in this upcoming match, they would be a very difficult side to get past, especially given the batting unit they have.
Soufriere Playing 11
Ashley Hippoltye, Bradley Tisson, Dalius Monrose, Jaquain Mesmain, Jervan Charles, Julian Sylvester, Kevin Gassie, Shani Mesmain, Trevor Edward, Wayne Prospere, Xytus Emmanuel.

It was a cracker of a contest when the two teams met last and Babboneau Leatherbacks emerged on top in that one. Both teams are evenly matched and would want to finish the season on a high. On form, Babboneau Leatherbacks are slightly ahead but there's nothing to separate the two on paper. Considering that and the way the two sides played in their most recent matches, we would be placing our bets on a Soufriere Sulphur City Stars win this upcoming match.
