After loosing in Semi Finals, Sunday will witness an encounter between Grenadines Divers and Botanical Garden Rangers for the third place play offs. Although both the teams are out of finals but still they will love to end their journey on a higher note, with a higher position in points table. Botanical Garden Rangers have had a successful tournament so far as they won five of their total 8 league matches. On the other hand Grenadines Divers could only win two games out of the total 8 games played in the league round.
Grenadines Divers have had a poor tournament so far. Their batting and fielding has not been upto the mark throughout the tournament especially they dropped crucial catches during the course of this tournament. Their batting faced unnecessary collapses oftenly and no batsmen seemed to be responsible. They will definitely want to win this game and give their fans something to cheer about. Will they be able to do so ? The answer is yes if they play fearless cricket and avoid mistakes which they have constantly done in the league matches.
On the other hand Botanical Garden Rangers will be looking forward to unleash their wrath over Divers for not being able to reach final. Despite of big names like Kesrick Williams, Hyron Shallow, Kenneth Dember Rangers couldn’t make it to the finals. Their performance in the league round was phenomenal with just three losses from total of 8 matches. They have done good in all departments but they couldn’t stop La Soufriere Hikers in the semi finals. Still their confidence will be high as they have defeated Divers twice in the league matches.
