Based on the preformed cluster model (PCM), we have extended our earlier study to investigate the effects of nuclear deformations and orientations of nuclei in context of ground-state de-excitation of Xe to Gd parents, resulting in a doubly closed shell 100Sn daughter and the complementary clusters. The comparison is also made with spherical choice of fragments to extract exclusive picture of the dynamics involved. Since PCM is based on collective clusterization picture, the preformation and penetration probabilities are shown to get modified considerably by inclusion of the quadrupole deformations (β2i) alone, which in turn affects the decay half-lives of the clusters.
