Gros Islet Cannon (GICB) will host Soufriere Sulphur City (SSCS) on Friday at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in West Indies, in the 16th match of St. Lucia Blast 2021.
The Soufriere Sulphur City team currently sits second in the St. Lucia Blast tournament points table with four points, after having won two of their opening four matches.

GICB vs SSCS Dream11 prediction
SSCS might be sitting up the table, but their form has been concerning this season given the fact that they have lost two already. Although hosts GICB also come to the fixture at the back of a narrow 6-run loss against Mon Repos Stars, they will be the favourites to take the win this match given their home venue.
GICB vs SSCS best players
Top tip: Best batsmen
For SSCS, the pick of the batsman will undoubtedly be Xytus Emmanuel. The batsman has looked to pick his form this season with his best knock of 13-balls 26 coming in the last match against BLS. He has 117 fantasy points already and should be in your team.
For GICB, the best bet will be Lee Solomon. Following his 13-balls 29 against MRS in the last match, Solomon will look to extend his momentum. He has 54 fantasy points so far and comes at 9 credits.
Top tip: Best bowlers
SSCS have some lethal bowlers and Kervell Prospere leads that line-up with his sheer pace. The 18-year-old has started his St Lucia Blast T10 2021 campaign brilliantly with three wickets from two matches. After taking a brace against LBR, the bowler was at it again against BLS where he returned with figures of 1/11. He has 152 fantasy points.
Not the most clinical of options, but GICB's Dornan Edward is seemingly coming into his form. The bowler has taken two wickets in two matches, conceding 27 runs in all and has 84 fantasy points.
Top tip: Best all-rounder, wicketkeeper
Without a doubt, SSCS captain Shani Mesmain remains the pick of the match for his all-round abilities. In four matches, the player has scalped four wickets and scored 50 runs for SSCS. He currently has 226 fantasy points.
Yet another SSCS player, Julian Sylvester will be worth having as the wicketkeeper for this clash. Apart from his heroics from behind the stumps, Sylvester has scored 96 runs in four matches so far, collecting 188 fantasy points.
