THE finalists for this year's Wray & Nephew White Overproof Masters T20 Cricket competition will be decided today.

Semi-final action takes place today at Kensington Park in east Kingston. At 10 a.m., defending champions Domtar Sports Club will oppose Wray All Stars before 2012 champions Mico Masters go up against St Thomas Masters at 2 p.m.

Both matches should be keenly contested. Wray All Stars, after winning all four matches to top Group B, will be looking to maintain that momentum against a dangerous Domtar team who are coming off a impressive nine-wicket win against May Pen Lions.

Domtar's top batsmen Marlon Keating and Winston Myers shared in a second-wicket century stand a week ago and will be hoping to maintain that form. Also expected to do well is all-rounder Mark English.

Lewis' brilliant 76

The star-studded Wray All Stars will look to in-form batsman Wayne Lewis who cracked a brilliant 76 in their demolition of St Thomas Masters a week ago. They are also expected to welcome back all-rounder Nehemiah Perry after an injury.

Former champions Mico Masters will start big favourite to get the better of St Thomas Masters. Batsmen Carl Brissett and Orville Pennant are the two key players for Mico.

Despite going into today's encounter as the underdogs, St Thomas have played good cricket to reach this far and batsmen Timothy Wilson and Samuel Barrett could play key roles.
