The first round of the Global T20 Canada 2019 has almost come to an end. Teams are fighting hard to consolidate a spot in the top four. The Vancouver Knights are trying to do the same as well. After their first three games in the tournament, the team has got three points. While they won and lost one game each, the other match ended up being a washout.
Thus, it is important for them to win the remaining two games in this round. They will play against the Edmonton Royals on Friday in an important fixture. Even if the Royals win every game from here, it will be tough for them to make it into the knockouts. The side lost all the three games they played thus far and could be the party spoiler for some of the teams going forward.
The 11th match of the Global T20 Canada 2019 will be played between Vancouver Knights and Edmonton Royals at the CAA Centre in Brampton, Ontario.
The match starts at 12:30 PM local time (4:30 PM GMT) (10:00 PM IST- Aug 2).
This game will be live on Star Sports and live streaming is available on Hotstar.
As it is evident from the last few games, the track at the CAA Centre has been excellent to bat on. Often, high scores are being put up on the board and it could be the same case for this game as well. With short boundaries all around the ground, even mistimed shots from the batsmen are comfortably carrying over the ropes.
Average first innings score: 212 (Last five matches in the GT20 Canada – till Match 9)

Vancouver Knights are expected to register a massive win especially after watching their batting exploits in the last game.
