BER vs CAN Dream11 : Bermuda and Canada head out in pursuit of their second straight win after winning their opening encounters yesterday
They were touted as two of the firm favourites to sit in the annuls of the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier Americas’ Region Final and both Canada and Bermuda did full justice to their staunch status yesterday. Fulfilling the colossal expectations accorded in them by their ardent supporters, the two sides eased to wins on opening day in the marquee tournament to reaffirm their credentials for a spot in the next round.
While this tournament offers the four partaking countries a chance to play international T20s and showcase their skill set on the big stage, the bigger narrative lies in the two spots it holds for the top 2 placed teams in the ensuing qualification round for the ICC T20 World Cup. And it’s this proposition which increases the competitiveness of today’s clash when two of the strongest outfits in the tournament clash heads against each other in a bid to make massive strides in the ranks.
While Bermuda were involved in an edge of the seat thriller against USA in the league opener yesterday, winning by 6 runs, Canada ended up routing Cayman Islands elsewhere. They went onto register a colossal 196 while batting first before stifling out the opposition’s run chase for just 112, seeing their huge 84 run win take them to the annuls of the league standings.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Yesterday’s surface and Canada’s innings showed us one thing over here. This is a track which is going to massively reward batsmen if they are willing to bide their time in the middle and see off the new ball. Along with the small dimensions of the ground and the batting conducive conditions in place, this will be a good batting track, one where the side winning the toss will be looking to bat first.

Ravinderpal Singh from Canada is the first player we are picking up over here after he went onto make a 100 for his side yesterday. After getting only a couple of chances in the Global T20 Canada league, he showed that he’s capable of delivering good performances yesterday.
Nitish Kumar comes in from the side as well while their most promising Rodrigo Thomas is picked up once again by us despite failing with the bat yesterday. The nous of innate ability he possesses to craft out some incredible innings was at show at Global T20 Canada with him going onto score 291 runs in 7 matches along, hitting three 50s on the way.
From Bermuda we have opted for Delray Rawlins after he showed immense acumen with the bat to play out an innings of quissential importance for his side. Along with it, his left arm spin was extremely effective as well, seeing him massively perturb USA to put in a complete, all-round match winning performance.
All-Rounders for BER vs CAN Dream11
With no one from Canada bound to play in this facet, Bermuda’s Kamau Leverock is our pick in this segment. The all-rounder is one of the most astute player in his side, intertwining his ability with both the bat and ball to deliver some staunch performances in recent time for his side. Allan Douglas comes in as well owing to the same skill set he brings to the side.
Bowling Order for BER vs CAN Dream11
While the surface is bound to favour the batsmen in the first part of the match, it won’t take much time to start assisting the spinners as we rummage through the encounter. The spinners are bound to enjoy their time out in this encounter and snare up wickets at will, seeing us bring in the right arm and left arm duo of Junaid Siddique and Saad Bin Zafar.
The duo makes for a deadly partnership, one which is bound to tear apart their opponents’ batting unit due to the movement they’ll get on the ball away from the right-handers. Dillon Heyliger comes in as well for us from the side while two wicket man, George O’Brien is our only pick from Bermuda.

Rodrigo is our captain for today while Rawlins is selected as the vice-captain.
