LEI vs BAR Dream11 : Group A top place decider sees first and second go at loggerheads in a cracker of an affair.
The only side to remain unbeaten in not only Group A of the Super50 Cup but across all the 10 sides partaking in the frontier tournamnet, Leeward Islands have undoubtedly been the most sublime setup of all the teams. The three wins from three matches plant them in first place of Group A, a position they’ll be looking to further hammer down in their favour come today’s forthcoming contest.
What has impressed is not just the 12 points they have amassed from these encounters but the manner in which those wins have come about with the team being the dominant side to leave their opponents in dismay in all those clashes. The gripping narrative was emphasised in the side’s last 8 wicket win over Jamaica as they peeled down the 263 run target set infront of them with 4 overs to spare in a succulent display by the outfit.
Elsewhere, Barbados are persistently snapping at their heels in second place with the side having won the two matches from three to sit with 8 points. A win today would take them level on points with their opposition, increasing the massive ramifications stemming from the tie for the outfit, a match where they’ll be looking to leave no stone unturned in a bid to make clear their aspirations for top spot in the group.
They come into the land of this dramatic encounter having ripped into Canada the last time around as they outplayed their opponents in all the dockets of the game to cruise to a 9 wicket win. Dismissing their opponents for 161, the side needed a mere 20 overs to maraud their way to a resounding win and massively boost their net run-rate with it.
