Match five of the St Lucia T10 Blast 2021 will see the Micoud Eagles take on the Vieux Fort South Sunrisers at the Daren Sammy Stadium on Sunday.
The Micoud Eagles have been highly impressive in the St Lucia T10 Blast with two wins from two games. Although their middle-order hasn't come to the fore yet, openers Mervin Wells and Murlan Sammy have been sensational so far. The duo were right on the money in the Eagles' win over Soufriere Sulphire earlier in the week.
The Vieux Fort South Sunrisers, on the other hand, have lost their first two matches in the St Lucia T10 Blast. Their batsmen have struggled to get going early on, with only Richie Robert showing signs of promise. The South Sunrisers bowlers will also need to improve their game against the Eagles' solid batting unit. Although the South Sunrisers will start as underdogs, Dishon Rampal and co. are well and truly capable of springing a surprise in what promises to be an exciting St Lucia T10 Blast game on Sunday.

Although the pitch is slightly on the slower side, the batsmen have used the shorter boundaries to their advantage. There is ample swing on offer for the pacers, with the spinners also expected to come into play as the match progresses. The pitch shouldn't change much during the game, which might entice teams to prefer batting first upon winning the toss. 100 should be a competitive total at the venue.
