Nutmeg Warriors (NW) will take on Bay Leaf Blasters (BLB) in the 15th match of the Spice Isle T10 tournament at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada on Friday, June 4.
Both Warriors and Blasters have struggled in the inaugural edition of the T10 tournament, having managed just one win in three matches.
While the Andre Fletcher-led Warriors won their only game against Cinnamon Pacers (CP), Devon Smith’s Blasters had defeated Clove Challengers (CC) to bag their first win of the campaign.
The pitch at the National Cricket Stadium has been a batting paradise where the average first innings score is around 100.
NW vs BLB Dream11 prediction
Nutmeg Warriors have a batting-heavy side and they will once again depend on their captain Andre Fletcher to help the side return to winning ways. Bay Leaf Blasters, on the other hand, have a decent bowling attack and the team will look to restrict the famed Warriors batting line-up. Going by team combination, NW will start as favourites against BLB on Friday.
NW vs BLB best players to pick for Spice Isle T10 fantasy team
Top Tip: Best batsmen
Nutmeg Warriors opening batsman Seandell Regis has been one of the standout performers with the bat in the inaugural edition of Spice Isle T10. The 19-year-old has scored 75 runs in three matches at a strike rate of over 150. He is going to play an important role if the Warriors are to bag two points against the Blasters.
For the Bay Leaf Blasters, captain Devon Smith will be the batsman to watch out for against NW. Smith has scored 56 runs in three matches and he is likely to add more runs to his tally on Friday.
Top Tip: Best bowlers
In the bowling department, Haston Jackson has been the wrecker-in-chief for the Nutmeg Warriors in the T10 tournament so far. The 22-year-old has picked three wickets in as many matches. Warriors captain Andre Fletcher will bank on Jackson to provide his side with important breakthroughs.
Meanwhile, Richard Rogers will be the go-to bowler for the Bay Leaf Blasters. Rogers has bagged three wickets at an impressive economy of seven. He will look to add more scalps to his kitty against NW.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Among the quality all-rounders on display, one must pick Andre Fletcher in their fantasy cricket team. The West Indies international has aggregated 93 runs in three matches at a strike rate of almost 200. He has also claimed eight wickets in Spice Isle T10 2021.
For the wicket-keeper spot, Blasters keeper Denis Smith will be the preferred choice over Samuel Charles. Denis Smith has made some valuable contributions with the bat in the middle-order for the Warriors. The 29-year-old has been equally impressive behind the stumps.
NW vs BLB probable playing XI
NW playing XI (probable): Andre Fletcher (captain), Seandell Regis, Akeem Alexis, Darel Cyrus, Donald Mc Donald, Samuel Charles (wicket-keeper), Haston Jackson, Riddick Hayling, Sheldon Joseph, Nealon Francois, Josh Thomas
