The Bay Leaf Blasters will take on Clove Challengers in the fifth-place playoff match of the Spice Isle T10 at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada on Thursday. Although it won't be the most important game of the day, it still has some relevance as both teams will want to avoid finishing last.
The Bay Leaf Blasters managed to win only three out of their 10 league stage matches and finished fifth in the Spice Isle T10 points table. They lost their last match to the Nutmeg Warriors by three wickets.
Clove Challengers also won three of their 10 league stage games but finished last, owing to having an inferior net run rate than the Blasters. They will head into Thursday's Spice Isle T10 fixture on the back of a 21-run loss to the Cinnamon Pacers.
The two teams have met twice in this season's Spice Isle T10, with the Bay Leaf Blasters emerging victorious on both occasions.
