Arnos Vale, St. Vincent – The battle to get into the final four of the NLA Neil Williams T20 competition will hit its peak this coming weekend when the four quarter-finals are contested.
A newly invigorated Guardian General Saints would highly fancy their chances of going all the way, as they came out of the preliminary stage of the competition with a perfect record. Speaking of the new-look Saints unit, captain and former Windward Islands first-class player Romel Currency noted that the presence of experienced national players and the youthful exuberance of the current members of the Guardian Saints unit are two of the reasons for the team’s new look and successes.
On the other hand, the defending champions, Flow Rivals, who stumbled out of the blocks, losing their first game of the season, has reestablished stability, and Anson Latchman, their captain believes they still have what it takes to retain their title. Latchman cited the experience of the mature players in the team who have played cricket at the highest level as being of utmost importance, and further indicated once his team executes their plans, they would be prepared for each challenge that may come their way.
The quarter-finals showdown will be played on Sunday 4th October. Match one will feature Group B winners Pollard Investments North Windward Combine trying to set the record straight against Victors Two. This matchup will play out at 10:00 AM at Arnos Vale One. The other three final eight matchups will commence at 2:00 PM on Sunday at their respective venues.
