Dream 11 T10 Blast into its Final Rounds

The 2024 Dream 11 St Lucia T10 Blast action continued on Thursday (April 18), with matches played at the Phillip Marcellin Ground (PMG) in Vieux Fort.

Match # 21 – Soufriere Sulphur City Stars vs. Mon Repos Stars

Top of the table Mon Repos Stars sent Soufriere SCS sliding to their third defeat with an emphatic eight-wicket victory.

Chasing 109 for victory, Jason Simon and Rohan Lesmond launched an attack against the opposing bowlers with an opening stand of 93 from 41 deliveries. Both batters were reprieved as Soufriere was ragged in the field with at least four dismissal chances going abegging.

Simon hit 40 off 20 balls (5×4, 2×6) before his dismissal, while Player-of-the-Match Lesmond hit 52 off 29 (2×4, 6×6).

Final Scores:

Soufriere SCS 108/2 (10 overs)

M Repos Stars 109/2 (8 overs)

Match # 22 – Babonneau Leatherbacks vs. Gros Islet Cannon Blasters

GI Cannon Blasters secured another victory in the tournament, while brushing past Babonneau for a 25-run win.

With a combination of spin – Tarrique Edward (3 for 21), Lee John (1 for 6), and pace, Murgaran Shoulette (1 for 6), Darvin Forde (2 for 25), and Tyrel Chicot (1 for 17), Gros Islet struck five times inside six overs during Babonneau’ s chase, setting the tone for a comfortable victory.

Babonneau’ s batting lacked distinction against the Gros Islet attack and only Johnnel Eugene (12), Shervon Joseph (10), Zachary Edmund (17) and Josh Cepal (13) reached double figures.

Earlier, Gros Islet opted to bat first, but the batters struggled for most of the innings and at one stage were 59 for 3 after seven overs.  Tyrel Chicot (21 from 11), Murgaran Shoulette (12 from 3) and Dominic Auguste – added 43 valuable runs from the last three overs before the innings ended on 102 for 5. Opening batter Jard Goodman top-scored with 39 off 26 (3×6, 2×4) before he was dismissed in the last over.

Final Scores:

GI Cannon Blasters 102/5 (10 overs)

Babonneau Leatherbacks 77/8 (10 overs)
