GICB vs SSCS Dream11 Team Prediction for today match
Both Soufriere and Gros Islet arrive into match 16 at the back of some heart-breaking losses. Soufriere’s previous group stage encounter against the Babonneau Leatherbacks this Wednesday ended in a crushing 11-run defeat. Meanwhile, GICB’s last game saw them get trounced by the Mon Repos Stars by 6-runs.
Of the two teams, Soufriere is the one faring better on the points table, currently placed in the second position. The Cannon Blasters, while currently placed six, should take confidence from the fact that they’ve played two lesser games than their cross-Caribbean rivals.
Gros Islet Cannon Blasters vs Soufriere Sulphur City Stars, Match 16, St. Lucia T10 Blast
Date and time: 7 May 2021, 11 PM IST
Venue: Darren Sammy National Cricket Ground, Gros Islet, St. Lucia
The current form of both teams:
Gross Islet: 1 win, 1 Loss (W-L), 6th on the points table
Soufriere Sulphur City: 2 wins, 2 losses (W-L-W-L), 2nd on the points table
The Darren Sammy cricket ground has shown a strong tendency to slow down towards the latter half of the game. Bowlers have relished defending scores on such a sluggish surface, which would suggest that the team winning the toss would opt to bat first. Given the short format and the slow nature of the pitch, a first-innings score of around 90-runs is considered good.
