The third-place playoff match of Spice Isle T10 2021 will see Saffron Strikers (SS) locking horns with Ginger Generals (GG) on Friday, June 11 at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada.
The two teams were on different ends of the spectrum in the group stages as while SS finished on top with 15 points having lost just two games, GG lost five of their 10 games to finish third. A slip-up in the semi-final 1 though ended Strikers’ hopes of challenging for the title.
SS vs GG Dream11 prediction
Judging by the form the two teams are in, SS should emerge as clear winners given that they have won four of their last five games as opposed to GG’s two victories in their last five encounters. Both SS and GG have already met twice in the campaign and the Strikers have registered comfortable wins in both those matches, which gives you a clearer picture of who to put your money on.
SS vs GG best players to pick for Spice Isle T10 fantasy team
Top tip: Best batsmen
Mickel Joseph of SS has been in fine form this season and considering the fact that he is averaging a little more than 38 fantasy points per game, he remains a must-have player.
From GG, their opener Roland Cato could be a decent choice for this fixture. The 23-year-old batsman might have seen a dip in form in his last two outings, but one cannot take away the fact that he is still averaging 43.8 fantasy points per game.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Bowling has been SS’s strong suit this season and if one has to pick, Kem Charles could be the man to go with. In his previous outing, he picked two wickets and came away with 62 fantasy points. Overall this season, he has maintained an average of 41 fantasy points per game.
Redhead Nicklaus of GG should be your go-to man. The 25-year-old has been a consistent performer for his side and averages 39 fantasy points per game. He is a safe bet for this game.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
GG’s McDonald Daniel is an outright favourite amongst all the other all-rounders from this fixture. The 24-year-old has always returned with extravagant points and while he might cost you 9.5 credits per game, he is totally worth the investment given that he is averaging a little more than 50 fantasy points per game.
For a wicket-keeper, there’s no one better than SS’s Lendon Lawrence. The 32-year-old is averaging 45.7 fantasy points per game and is miles clear of his competition.
SS vs GG probable playing XI
SS playing XI (probable): Ryan John, Samora Fraser, Jelani George, Kendel George, Mickel Joseph, Lendon Lawrence (wicket-keeper), Shermon Lewis, John Olive, Kem Charles, St Nickozi Hillaire, Laurie Williams.
GG playing XI (probable): Roland Cato, McDonald Daniel, Benjamin Wavel (wicket-keeper), George Keone, Matthew Anil, Edward Larry, Andrew Sheon, Pascal Nelon, Charles Reynold, Fraser Michael, Redhead Nicklaus
