Match two of the St Lucia T10 Blast 2021 will see the Laborie Bay Royals take on the Micoud Eagles at the Daren Sammy National Stadium in St Lucia on Friday.
The Laborie Bay Royals are back in action as they try to shrug off the disappointment of 2020 with a fine showing this time around. They have a talented squad with a good mix of youth and experience, which should hold them in good stead ahead of the fixture. With Awene Edward leading the side, the Bay Royals will hope to get their St Lucia T10 Blast campaign up and running as quickly as possible.
Their opponents, the Micoud Eagles, are perhaps the team to beat in the St Lucia T10 Blast. Led by ICC T20 World Cup-winning captain Daren Sammy, the Eagles boast an explosive batting unit like no other in the competition. In addition, they will also receive the services of Shervin Charles, who was one of the top performers in the previous edition. Although they head into the contest with the favorites tag, the Eagles will be wary of what the Bay Royals are capable of in this format. With both teams looking to get off to a winning start, an entertaining St Lucia T10 Blast game beckons at the Daren Sammy National Stadium.

A good batting surface beckons at the Daren Sammy Cricket Stadium with some help on offer for the pacers as well. While there should be some extra bounce on offer early on for the pacers, the batsmen will enjoy the ball coming onto the bat. As the match progresses, the spinners will also come into play, making for an even contest between bat and ball in the middle overs. 100 is the bare minimum at the venue, with both teams likely to prefer chasing upon winning the toss.
