The second match of the Global T20 Canada will see the Montreal Tigers locking horns against the Winnipeg Hawks on Friday. The Hawks were knocked out of the competition in the second qualifier and will be keen to go a notch further this year. The Tigers endured a disappointing in the inaugural edition as they ended with only two wins in six matches to finish at the fifth place in the points table.
Some exciting players will be in the action in this game which includes George Bailey, Keemo Paul and Sunil Narine for the Tigers. Montreal Tigers will be affected with the unavailability of some of the players for the first few matches. The Winnipeg Hawks, however, don’t have such issues. Almost all of their players are available except for Sompal Kami who is playing for Nepal in an ICC event.
The 2nd match of the Global T20 Canada 2019 will be played between Montreal Tigers vs Winnipeg Hawks at the CAA Centre, Brampton, Ontario.
The match starts at 04:30 PM local time (02:00 AM IST (27 July)) (8:30 PM GMT).
This game will be live on Star Sports and live streaming is available on Hotstar.
There is no idea how the pitch will behave and many will be having a keen look at the tournament opener set to be played on Thursday. It is expected to be a batting paradise, at least for the first few matches. Also, if the pitch used for the first game is used for this game, it might become a tad slow.
