Match 19 of the St Lucia T10 Blast 2021 has the Gros Islet Cannon Blasters taking on the Babonneau Leatherbacks at the Daren Sammy National Stadium in St Lucia on Sunday.
The Gros Islet Cannon Blasters, led by Kimani Melius, have blown hot and cold in the St Lucia T10 Blast, with only one win in three games at the time of writing. Despite winning their first match of the tournament, the Blasters succumbed to consecutive losses, jolting their chances of a playoff spot.
The Babonneau Leatherbacks have also struggled in the St Lucia T10 Blast with one win in two games. However, Shervon Joseph and co. impressed against Soufriere Sulphire earlier in the tournament, which should hold them in good stead ahead of Sunday's game.
Although both teams are well-matched on paper, the Gros Islet Cannon Blasters might hold the advantage given their explosive batting unit. With two valuable points up for grabs, we should be in for a cracking game of T10 cricket at the Daren Sammy National Stadium on Sunday.

Although the bowlers have enjoyed the movement off the surface, a good batting track awaits the two sides at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium on Sunday. Despite the early swing on offer, the ball should skid on to the bat nicely, making for an exciting powerplay phase. As the game progresses, the spinners will come into play, but the dimensions of the ground go against them. Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 90-95 being par at the venue.
