BER vs CAN Dream11 : Bermuda and Canada vie it out for top spot today with the two unbeaten sides clashing heads in their final encounter against each other.
When the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier Americas’ Region made an advent, for the four partaking sides this was as big an outing on the international stage as they get. Not only was it a chance to showcase their skill set in front of the world but also finish in the top 2 and with it seal a berth into the ensuing qualification round for next year’s T20 World Cup.
And two sides who have emerged unscathed from the league, all but nailing down their places in the pinnacles of the league are today’s opponents. While Canada are unbeaten in the league to sit pretty in first place, unchallenged in their quest of winning this momentous league, Bermuda assured themselves of second place with a win over USA yesterday.
Stifling USA’s innings cheaply, Bermuda came out with composure imbedded in their run chase, taking away a pivotal 4 wicket win from the encounter. Elsewhere Canada ended up trouncing Cayman Islands for the second time in the league, a result which sees them occupy first place with the same number of wins as Bermuda to their name.
With the last clash between these two being truncated after incessant rainfall, today’s occasion will see the winner make first place their own, something which adds to the spice of this encounter. This should be an edge of the seat thriller, a topsy-turvy encounter which switches hands several times before settling in one side’s favour.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
The one thing which has been made apparent on this surface is the fact that the bowlers are going to love their time out over here, especially the slower ones. Along with this the fact that this is the second encounter of the day here is bound to see the surface play even more adversely for batsmen with spinners coming into full effect in the second part of the match.
This narrative means that the side winning the toss will definitely be looking to bat first today.

Wicket-Keeper for BER vs CAN Dream11
Bermuda’s Okera Bascome is our pick in this facet with the man with the gloves not only showcasing his capabilities as a wicket-keeper but with the bat as well.
Batsmen for BER vs CAN Dream11
We continue with the picks from Bermuda, getting in Delray Rawlins as the first player for us over here. Playing in the Vitality Blast massively helped him tune his capabilities, emerging as Bermuda’s top run getter till now with a massive 118 runs. Along with that, he’s more than capable at bowling his left arm spin of offspin as well, something which makes him excellent value in this encounter.
We have picked out Onias Bascome from the side as well while from Canada we are getting in their top scorer, Navneet Dhaliwal. With Rodrigo Thomas miserably failing, Dhaliwal has helped fill n the void at the top of the order, scoring 130 runs with Nitish Kumar getting good runs as well.
We have decided to stick with Ravinderpal Singh as well despite him waning horrendously in form after his 100 in the league opener given the lacklustre form of Bermuda’s bowling unit.
All-Rounders for BER vs CAN Dream11
With there being no viable option from Canada, both our picks in this segment emerge from Bermuda. Their captain Kamau Leverock is the first pick from the side with us getting in Malachi Jones after an excellent performance against USA, one that saw him step up to the mantle with both the bat and ball.
Bowling Order for BER vs CAN Dream11
Left arm spinner Saad Bin Zafar is our first pick over here with spinners being the way to go for this fixture. Also what increases the likelihood of him being opted by us is the fact that Bermuda come equipped with a heavy right handed batting set up, one which could see Saad leave them in disarray.
Pacer Dillon Heyliger is also brought in from the side while from the opposition we have chosen George O’Brien, someone who has four wickets in three encounters for his side.
Captain And Vice-Captain for BER vs CAN Dream11
Dhaliwal is our captain for this encounter while Ravinderpal is chosen as the vice-captain.
