The Vieux Fort North Raiders will lock horns with the Micoud Eagles in the 21st match of the St Lucia T10 Blast at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium on Monday.
The Vieux Fort North Riders, who started their St Lucia T10 Blast campaign with a win, have since lost two games on the trot. They are currently tenth in the points table with just one win from their three matches. The North Riders will head into the encounter on the back of a 34-run loss to the South Castries Lions. Moreover, it will be the Riders' last game of the St Lucia T10 Blast, and they will be hoping to end their tournament run on a winning note.
The Micoud Eagles, on the other hand, have picked up five wins from as many matches and are comfortably perched atop the St Lucia T10 Blast points table. They won their last game against Mabouya Valley Constrictors convincingly with eight wickets and four overs to spare. The Eagles will be looking forward to extending their winning streak against an off-form Vieux Fort North Riders side.

Date & Time: 10th May 2021, 09:00 PM IST
Venue: Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet.
The Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium has witnessed some high-scoring games recently. The ball comes on to the bat nicely, enabling the batters to play shots on the up. The track is better suited for the pacers as compared to the spinners. The captain winning the toss should look to bowl first as the chasing teams have won most of the games played at the venue.
