Cinnamon Pacers (CP) and Bay Leaf Blasters (BLB) clash for the second time in the league as they take on each other in match 20 of the Spice Isle T10 on Sunday, June 6, at the National Cricket Stadium in St George’s, Grenada.
CP are placed second on the points table with three wins and two losses in five matches and suffered a 21-run loss via the Duckworth-Lewis method in their last match. They have defeated BLB before and another win would propel them to the top of the table.
BLB on the other hand have lost thrice in five matches and are coming on the back of a 43-run loss against the Nutmeg Warriors. They are currently placed at the bottom of the table.
CP vs BLB Dream11 prediction
Cinnamon Pacers have an edge over Bay Leaf Blasters in terms of the wins and overall team combination. More importantly, CP won convincingly by seven wickets the last time these two sides met. Though BLB can pose a strong challenge to them, Cinnamon Pacers are likely to trump their opponents once again.
CP vs BLB best players to pick for Spice Isle T10 fantasy team
Top tip: Best batsmen
Young CP opener Alick Athanaze is the man in form and a fantasy favourite at the moment. He scored an attacking 28-ball 48 against the Ginger Generals and an unbeaten 39-ball 78 versus the Saffron Strikers recently. He is also the highest run-getter of the tournament so far.
Captain Devon Smith is the batsman to watch out for BLB. He has been getting quick starts for his team consistently but he went a step ahead and played a match-winning knock against the Strikers when he struck an unbeaten 24-ball 65. He is a definite pick for any fantasy team owner.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Cinnamon Pacers captain Micah Narine is the bowler to watch out for. He returned with figures of 3/9 off his two overs against the Clove Challengers and can pose a real threat to other oppositions going forward. A must-have in the fantasy squads.
Markel Baptiste can serve as a surprise package for fantasy cricket lovers. The BLB bowler grabbed three wickets in just an over in his last match against the Warriors and can be persisted with, due to his wicket-taking ability.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Kenroy Peters is the best all-rounder pick in this match. The CP player is a handy batsman in the middle-order and has taken seven wickets in his last three matches. The fantasy owners would be pleased to have him in their ranks.
BLB wicket-keeper Denis Smith is an extremely good option with his smart glovework and useful batting performances. He has consistently maintained a strike rate of 200 across the last three matches as well.
CP vs BLB probable playing XI
Cinnamon Pacers playing XI (probable): Alick Athanaze, Heron Campbell, Kyron Andrew, Kenroy Peters, Micah Narine (captain), Javed St Paul, Chard Charles, Javed Hazzard (wicket-keeper), Adel Beggs, Nicoby John, Reuel Williams
Bay Leaf Blasters playing XI (probable): Devon Smith (captain), Sharkim Edwards, Denis Smith (wicket-keeper), Jalon Olive, Craig Williams, Markel Baptiste, Keron Charles, Leon Chichester, Amikel Dubissette, Deron Hypolite, Richard Rogers
