The first round of the Global T20 Canada 2019 will come to an end on Sunday evening when Toronto Nationals will face Montreal Tigers. Toronto, the team led by Yuvraj Singh, has been involved in quite a few close matches. However, only once they ended up on the winning side and are placed at 5th in the points table. Yuvraj’s maiden fifty of the tournament on Saturday resulted in an 11-run defeat.
The former Indian star all-rounder was striking the ball cleanly until he hit one straight to deep point fielder on the edge of the boundary. On the other hand, the Montreal Tigers have two wins from four matches and are placed at No.3. However, their NRR is quite poor due to the trashing they received in their 2nd game. Brampton Wolves chased down the target of 102 in only 6.4 overs.
The 15th match of the Global T20 Canada 2019 will be played between Toronto Nationals and Montreal Tigers at the CAA Centre in Brampton, Ontario.
The match starts at 04:30 PM local time (8:30 PM GMT) (02:00 AM IST- August 05).
This game will be live on Star Sports and live streaming is available on Hotstar.
