Edmonton Royals is the only team, who is yet to win a match in the 2019 Global T20 Canada. Faf du Plessis and Co had a golden chance versus the Toronto Nationals but ended up losing the game by a couple of wickets owing to a late blitz from Manpreet Gony. Their next match is against the Montreal Tigers, who aren’t in great shape either since their 24-run victory over Winnipeg Hawks.
The Brampton Wolves decimated them by 10 wickets, chasing down 102 in 6.4 overs. The Tigers’ bowling went through a nightmare as the Vancouver Knights plundered 276 runs courtesy of Chris Gayle’s blistering 54-ball 122 supported by half-centuries from Tobias Visee and Rassie van der Dussen. The pitch in Ontario is an absolute belter and the Tigers’ bowlers can be in for more misery.
The 9th match of the Global T20 Canada 2019 will be played between Montreal Tigers 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).
This game will be live on Star Sports and live streaming is available on Hotstar.
The track at the venue has gotten better for batting as the T20 league has progressed. There is absolutely nothing for the bowlers. Scores of 180 plus have become a walk in the park and even scores of above 200 don’t look safe by any stretch of the imagination.
