Finalists in last year’s Cool & Smooth T20 Explosion, Burton’s Laundry All Saints Pythons, believe they have learnt from the experience and are ready to lift this year’s title and carry home the $20,000 cash prize.
This is according to coach, Derrol “Musai” Thomas, who said preparations for the May 14-26 tournament are underway.
“Being there [in the finals] for the first time, you are going to have one or two glitches like that but this time around I think the guys are more focused and know what’s on hand. We have to get more intense in our training. We’re doing our different types of fielding and just make sure we get everybody sharp in every aspect, batting in terms of hitting but you just have to be selective,” he said. 
All Saints will contest Zone 1 alongside CUB Bethesda Golden Eagles,
Pigotts Crushers Rising Suns Spartans and must finish in the top two if they are to advance to the semifinals.
The inclusion of young Windies fast bowler, Alzarri Joseph, was key to All Saints’ run in last year’s tournament but it is highly unlikely they will have his full services this year as the player is currently undergoing remedial work with a Cricket West Indies (CWI) team of doctors and coaches.
Thomas is however hopeful they will have the player for the tournament.
“Yes, he is clear in terms of more the batting and so on but the bowling part of it needs a little more tuning, so maybe by the time [the tournament starts] he will be cleared by that department so we are not certain he will be bowling as yet but in terms of a batsman, he will be playing, yes,” he said. 
Zone 2 comprises defending champions PIC Liberta Blackhawks, Bolans, New Winthorpes Lions and Empire Nation.
Second place finishers will take home $10,000 with $5,000 going to the third place finishers.
