The second edition of the Global T20 Canada is all set to get underway on July 25. This time around, all the matches will be played at the CAA Centre in Brampton, Ontario unlike the inaugural season when Maple Leaf North-West Ground in King City hosted all the matches. The defending champions Vancouver Knights will face Toronto Nationals in the opening match of the season.
The format this season will be the same like the last year. But the West Indies B side is no more playing and Brampton Wolves is the new franchise which will take part in the competition. The Caribbean outfit though will be missed this year as they were the runners-up last season and would’ve lit up the tournament even this time around.
Superstars in action
However, a lot of international superstars are set to grace the Global T20 Canada this year. The likes of Yuvraj Singh, Brendon McCullum will be playing for the Toronto Nationals with Trent Boult also in the same side. In another amazing mix, Kane Williamson and Faf du Plessis will turn up for Edmonton Royals while the Universe Boss Chris Gayle will join hands with Rassie van der Dussen and Tim Southee along with Andre Russell for Vancouver Knights.
Dwayne Bravo, Umar Akmal and Chris Lynn have been signed by the Winnipeg franchise and the Brampton Wolves will have Shakib Al Hasan, Shahid Afridi, Wahab Riaz and the T20 legend Darren Sammy representing them. The star quality is smiling more on the Global T20 Canada this season and the organisers will be delighted that their hard work is paying off.
