The Vancouver Knights have had a stellar outing thus far in the tournament and are coming into this fixture with form well and truly on their side. This is their last match of the group stage and will be desperate to finish on a high before heading into the playoffs. They also will be keen to win this game and finish in the top two to get an extra shot at the final.
Winnipeg Hawks lost their previous two games by heavy margins, which dented their hopes of finishing in the final four. They now have four points in five games with a net run-rate of -0.722, which means they will have to deliver a very big performance on the day to stand a chance. They also have to expect some results to go in their way.
The 16th match of the Global T20 Canada 2019 will be played between Vancouver Knights and Winnipeg Hawks 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.
The last couple of matches on this ground have not been very high-scoring and even this game will see around 280-300 runs scored on aggregate.
