Table-toppers Saffron Strikers aim to go past listless Bay Leaf Blasters - get predictions, tips
Saffron Strikers (SS) will have a third straight win in sight when they lock horns with Bay Leaf Blasters (BLB) in match 11 of the Spice Isle T10 on Thursday, June 3, at the National Cricket Stadium in St George’s, Grenada.
BLB have had a disappointing start to the campaign with two losses in as many matches and are the only team to not open their points account yet. Their net run rate is also negative.
SS on the other hand have won both their matches quite convincingly, one by 9 wickets and the other by 25 runs. With another victory, their tally would stand at six points, comfortably ahead of their opponents.
BLB vs SS Dream11 prediction
This one is a one-sided contest going by the recent performances of both teams. While Saffron Strikers are the table-toppers, Bay Leaf Blasters are languishing at the bottom of the table and haven’t clicked as a team yet. They have shown good form in bits and pieces but that won’t be enough against a quality side like BLB, who are likely to win this fixture quite easily.
