BLB vs CC: In a battle to avoid the wooden spoon, Bay Leaf Blasters are set to take on Clove Challengers in the fifth-place playoff game in Spice Isle T10 tournament. Both teams had a poor campaign and failed to qualify for the knock-out stages of the tournament.
Bay Leaf Blasters registered just three wins out of ten games and missed on the knock-out stages by just two points. The same is the story of Clove Challengers who finished last on the points table because of the poor net run rate. With a final chance to redeem themselves, both will look to capitalize on an opportunity on Thursday.
Devon Smith is in sensational form for Bay Leaf Blasters and the skipper even scored a half-century while chasing in the previous game. However, the team faltered at the finishing line as they were defeated in a super over. On the other hand, Darron Nedd and Imran Joseph will be key for Clove Challengers’ aspirations on Thursday in a bid to finish fifth in the league.

BLB vs CC Head to Head
In the last two meetings, Bay Leaf Blasters have registered two wins in two games against Clove Challengers. In both games, Bay Leaf Blasters not only restricted the opposition for a modest total but also chased it down with ease.
The surface at Granada is batsmen friendly and we have seen the large targets getting chased down here. The bowlers have to be on top of their game if they are to get any success at this venue. Teams batting first have three out of the last five games at the venue.
A hot day is reported at Grenada with a maximum temperature of 28 degree centigrade. The possibility of rain is well on cards because of the high humidity at the venue.
