Cricket fans across the world will be relieved to finally witness some live-action with the start of the Vincy T10 Premier League. The tournament will run for nine days with three games scheduled to be played per day. While the duration of nine days might leave the fans longing for more, the tournament will likely open gates for other tournaments to follow. We have already seen a few games played in the tournament so far and almost all the contests were tightly contested. It's a jam-packed tournament with not much time between the games for teams to prepare for their next respective encounter.
After getting off to similar kind of starts, Grenadlines Divers and Fort Charlotte Strikers are set to take on each other on the third day of the tournament. The match is set to be played at Arnos Vale Stadium, St Vincent on 24th May. As of now, both sides are languishing at the bottom half of the points table and would be desperate to register a win here. They both played reasonably well in their respective earlier matches and are expected to match fire with fire in this upcoming match as well. A scintillating contest is certainly on the cards.
Grenadline Divers got off to a poor start as they lost their first match by a narrow margin to Salt Pond Breakers. Consequently, they are now placed at the second spot from the bottom of the table. A win here, however, will most likely push them to the second spot on the ladder subject to how they perform in their second match of the competition.
Batting first against the Breakers, Grenadlines kept losing wickets at the regular intervals and ended up aiming too high and a score nowhere near their aim. Wayne Harper and Shem Browne got the Divers off to a solid start as they put on 34 runs for the first wicket before Harper was found short of his crease. Shem Browne and Romano Pierre tried to keep the innings motoring, but they both perished in quick succession. However, the wicket of Asif Hooper triggered a collapse, from which the Divers could never recover. They lost their last seven wickets for just 17 runs and those 17 runs took a little under five overs. The collapse highlighted Divers' weak middle-order and they would have to be wary of that in their upcoming fixture.
While their batsmen could get them to a total of only, their bowlers did well to keep Divers in the game up until the last over. Asif Hooper provided them with the first breakthrough as he picked up Rickford Walker in the third over. Geron Wyllie displayed terrific skills thereafter as he picked up four wickets in his two overs. Had it not been for the terrific innings from Kadir Nedd and Urnel Thomas, the Divers would have made merry through their way to a victory.
While it is difficult to decipher form on the basis of just one outing, the Divers do seem to be a little weak in the batting department. For them, Obed McCoy will be a key player in the upcoming games. However, he did look a little edgy in the opening game and failed to put anything substantial. McCoy did exceedingly well in the last season of the Caribbean Premier League and the Divers would need him to get into a rhythm as the tournament progresses. Alongside McCoy, Asif Hooper is a vital player. He has a history of being extremely economical with the ball and that is evident by his domestic T20 economy of 4.86. All in all, the Divers are heavily weighed in the bowling department, at least on paper, and would need something substantial from their top-order in the upcoming fixtures.
Anson Latchman, Shem Browne, Wayne Harper, Alex Samuel, Asif Hooper, Tijorn Pope, Razine Browne, Richie Richards, Obed McCoy, Geron Wyllie, Braxie Browne.
Whilw the Strikers come across menancing by their name and logo, their performance was far from that. In their first encounter, the Strikers looked drowsy in their performance and were outclassed by Dark View Explorers. Not only did they lose, the margin of their win was reasonably large and that pushed them to the bottom of the ladder.
Batting first on a reasonably good surface, the Strikers got off to a sedate start start as Darius Martin bowled a brilliant first over. As a result of that, Ronald Scott was run-out while trying to steal a single. He did not trouble the scorers and consumed seven deliveries and that proved costly at the end. Gidron Pope and Renrick Williams combined to score 34 runs together, but their partnership lacked impetus. Thanks to Chelson Stowe, who scored 13 off 6 deliveries, FCS managed to put a fighting total of 75 runs on the board.
They started the defence of their total on a pretty strong note as Ray Jordan bowled a testing over and gave almost nothing away. However, the rest of the bowlers failed to keep up to the task and conceded too many boundaries too soon. Barring Jordan and Sealroy Williams, none of their bowlers looked threatening as the Explorers chased down the total with nine balls to spare and eight wickets in hand. Jordan and Williams returned with the figures of 2-0-4-0 and 2-0-11-1 respectively.
To add insult to injury, Strikers' marquee signing, Keron Cottoy, failed to leave any impression whatsoever as he injured himself and could not bowl a single delivery. His participation for the next match is still behind the clouds of uncertainty. Overall, the Strikers appear to be a talented unit, but lacked application in the opening fixture. The likes of Gidron Pope and Renrick Williams will have to contribute more for Strikers to leave an impression in the tournament.
Gidron Pope, Jahiel Walters, Olanzo Bellingy, Renrick Williams, Keron cottoy, Kirton Lavia, Sealroy Williams, Ray Jordan, Chelson Stowe, Sylvan Spencer, Rasheed Frederick.
Setting a total in shorter versions of the game is always tricky and it is no different in this format. Even though the surface is expected to be slow, it isn't likely to change much in the span of ten overs. The captain winning the toss will like to have a set total in their mind and are therefore expected to bowl first.

We have already seen in the matches gone so far that the surface is incredibly slow. Besides, the teams have struggled to get to the terms of the surface and that has often resulted in the fall of quick wickets. With the sun shining bright, the surface is only going to get drier and slower and we can expect plenty of assistance on offer for the spinners. The team batting first should be looking to score a total of over 90 runs to put the team batting second under pressure. Anything less than 75, however, shouldn't be too difficult to chase down.

These are early days in the tournament, but such is the nature of the tournament that any loss early on can come back to haunt at the fag end of the tournament. Both the sides are coming off defeats in their respective previous encounters and will be desperate for a win. Comparing the performance of the two sides in their first two matches, Grenadline Divers appear to be better placed. Also, the possible absence of Keron Cottoy could have a huge impact on the game. Therefore, betting on a Divers win would be the way to go here.
