Match Abandoned
After an exciting first innings from the BGR batsmen, the stage was set for a thrilling chase for the FCS side who would have loved to clinch the win after managing to restrict the explosive opponent to a sub-110 score.

Alas, it wasn't meant to be as the rains gods did not do any favours for them and the match has been abandoned as a result.

With that, we end our coverage here of the Vincy Premier League T10 tournament but the cricketing action from around the world continues at Sportskeeda, so stay tuned for all the updates right here! This is Gaurav Kadam, and my colleague Pradeep Somashekhar signing off for now! Stay safe everyone!
UPDATE: Due to the incessant rain, the match between the Fort Charlotte Strikers and Botanical Garden Rangers has been abandoned.

The covers were on as soon as it started raining but the non-stop rain means that no further action is possible now in this match.
UPDATE: Unexpected rain showers and we're going to have some delay in here with the start of the chase, stay tuned for further updates!
Fort Charlotte Strikers have to chase down 107 to win!

After winning the toss, Botanical Garden Rangers decided to bat first! They lost out their feisty opener Emmanuel Stewart in the powerplay overs but the other opener Hyron Shallow took the task of marshalling the innings.

Shallow scored a knock of 37 runs in 18 balls striking seven boundaries and even had one six to his credit. Shallow managed to rebuild the innings despite losing partners at regular intervals. Donwell Hector and BGR skipper Kenneth Dember contributed with 16 and 14 runs respectively and a late flourish from Donald Delpleche got the BGR past the 100 mark on the scoreboard.

Ray Jordan was the pick of the bowlers for the FCS side as he bowled 7 dot balls in his spell of two overs and conceded just 10 runs along with a wicket. Kirton Lavia was great for FCS as well taking 2 wickets for 18 runs.

FCS will back themselves to chase this total down! We return back with the chase very soon, so stay tuned right here at Sportskeeda!
