La Soufriere Hikers 131/3 (10 ov)
Salt Pond Breakers 63/9 (10 ov)
La Soufriere Hikers won by 68 runs.
La Soufriere Hikers are the VPL T10 2.0 Champions!! They have won the Finals by 68 runs!

After losing the first championship against the Breakers in VPL T10's first edition the Hikers team and management have come out strong and really leveled up with the Breakers in the finals! They managed to pull off quite a clinical performance in this finals as they just obliterated the Salt Pond Breakers batting!

Hikers were put to bat by the Breakers and batting freely they managed to put up quite a challenging total on the board for the finals. The Breakers were banking on their skipper Sunil Ambris to provide them with the start which he has been doing throughout the tournament. Unfortunately, it was not his day as he was sent back to the hut on the second ball where the fielder Hackshaw managed to take a spectacular catch.

That catch really set the tone for the Hikers coming into the second innings and they just started to dominate the Breakers upfront as Breakers were 1/2. The pressure of the finals really started to take a toll on the Breakers as the Hikers really did well to pull the breaks on the Breakers innings.

The wickets kept tumbling for the Breakers like the dominoes as most of them could not even manage to reach the double figures! Only Leshawn Lewis (11 off 14), Tijorn Pope (12 off 8), and Seon Sween(19 off 9) were the 3 batsmen to register the double figures! Although all the credit goes to the Hikers bowlers who stuck to their plans and bowled the prefect lines and lengths for the day!

Sunil Ambris and the Breakers will really be reflecting upon the toss where they decided to bowl first given the fact they had built up the habit of batting first and get a good total on the board and restricting their opponents to a minimum. They decided to change it around and it cost them the finals it seems. 

All the Hikers brought their A-game coming on to bowl but the pick of the bowler would be Kavem Hodge who in the first over got the 2 wickets and really got his side on top in this finals. He conceded just 7 runs from his 2 overs. Benniton Stapleton and their skipper Desron Maloney were also able to pick 2 wickets and really pushed the Breakers on the backfoot in this run chase.

The La Soufriere Hikers really managed to hold their nerves and did not panic even when they had a slow start to set the total. Their batsmen really decided to get themselves in and once they were comfortable they started to explode to parts of the ground and provided great entertainment to the crowds in the stands!

After a long time, the crowd was in attendance in fine number out for the finals and it would have been quite joyful for both the teams to see the stands which were empty and silent previously, now very much brought the stadium alive once again.

The Vincey Premier League T10 2.0 has surely managed to bring in more flavors more vibes than ever before and has proved to one of the finest and entertaining tournaments from the Carribeans! As this edition comes to an end we look forward to 3.0 in the near future.
