A confident South Castries Lions (SCL) team is all set to lock horns with Mabouya Valley Constrictors (MAC) in the 23rd match of the St Lucia T10 Blast 2021 on Tuesday, May 11, at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium.
SCL made a disappointing start to their new season, losing out to Micoud Eagles in their opening game. The team, however, got back to winning ways and went on to win two games on the trot. MAC, however, head into the contest on the back of two consecutive defeats.
SCL vs MAC Dream11 prediction
Judging by current form, it is safe to say that SCL go into the game as firm favourites. Even their record at the venue is something to look forward to. In a total of 12 matches played at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, SCL have won 10. MAC, on the other hand, have won just two of their seven matches at the venue.
The toss is set to play a crucial role in the match and expect the captain who wins the toss to chase. In the last five matches at the venue, the team batting second has won three games.
SCL vs MAC best players
Top Tip: Best batsmen
SCL opener Wade Clovis is the safest bet to go with considering the fact that he averages 14 points per games. He may have struggled for runs this season, but he has been constantly bringing in points.
For MAC, there are as many as two options to choose from in Zachary Edmund and Orey Changoo. Given the statistics, the former remains a viable option as he is averaging 35.3 points per game.
Top Tip: Best Bowlers
There’s no one better than SCL’s Xavier Gabriel at the moment as far as bowling is concerned. The bowler has picked two wickets in three games this season and has done so while being extremely economical. Note that he has also chipped in with some important runs for his team and is a handy option to have.
As far as MAC is concerned, Christian Ange should be your preferred choice. He is averaging more than 30 points per game and like Gabriel, has been bowling at a brilliant economy.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
MAC’s Murgaran Shoulette is a must-have player in the team. The all-rounder is averaging a whopping 44.3 points per game and can be your captain for extra bonus points. For wicket-keeper, Johnson Charles of SCL should be in your team since he is averaging 65.7 points per game.

SCL probable XI: Johnson Charles (captain and wicket-keeper), Noelle Leo (wicket-keeper), Kemrol Charles, Collinus Callendar, Wade Clovis, Nixon Edmund, Wendell Inglis, Shervon Leo, Daniel Jn Baptiste, Aaron Joseph, Xavier Gabriel
