CAN vs CAY Dream11 : Undefeated Canada look to further extend their stronghold over the league today when they take on uninspired Cayman Island
With the halfway mark in the marquee ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier America’s Region Final beyond us now, the league has started shaping up, giving us an idea into how it will look at its culmination. And one narrative which is clear is that Canada are set to end up on top of the table after winning all of their first ground matches to sit pretty in the annuls of the league standings.
Tested for the first time yesterday by USA, Canada showed the requite perseverance needed of champions with the side’s middle and lower middle-order stepping upto the mantle to get the side past the finishing line. It was a win which not only took Canada clear of USA into first place but further reinstated their credentials as firm favourites for winning this league and progressing to the next round of the qualification stage.
Elsewhere for Cayman Islands, life in international cricket has been tedious and angst filled with the side unable to acclimatise itself with the competiveness of the big stage. They have been dismissed in all their three encounters till now, suffering agonising defeats which leaves them as the only side to yet record a single point on the board.
Losing to Bermuda yesterday, Cayman Islands’ were further hammered down into fourth place, a result which saw them become the first side to end their sojourn in the league. With only pride left to fight for now, the side will be looking to put in a much improved display today when they take an outfit who are bestowed with a way superior bunch of players.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Rain has played a major havoc on this surface, rendering it extremely treacherous for the batsmen who have found shot making an angst. Batsmen have been made for the ball to come onto the bat with no pace being accorded to the deliveries sent their way, seeing runs massively dry up over the last couple of days.
With this being the first match of the day here, the side winning the toss will be clearly looking to bat first and put up a testing target infront of their opponents.

CAN vs CAY Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keeper for CAN vs CAY Dream11
With their being a requisite need to include four players from Cayman Islands, we have decided to begin with their wicket-keeper, getting in Chad Hauptfleisch as the first player into our side. He’s been someone who has still managed to look good for the side with the bat and along with his involvement with the gloves, he could easily emerge as one of the top points getter for his side today.
Batsmen for CAN vs CAY Dream11
Or entire batting order is composed of picks from Canada with us bring in all of their top 4 batsmen. This will be a match which the side dominate with their worldclass batting unit showcasing its immense skill set, peeling off Cayman Islands with will.
Opener Navneet Dhaliwal comes in along with Rodrigo Thomas, someone who is yet to unlock his true potential for the side. After enjoying an extremely fruitful Global T20 Canada league, the clean hitter has yet to resonate the same form which saw emerge as a pivotal player for his side and Cayman Islands could be just the opponent to emulate his previous soirees.
After making a century against Cayman Islands, one which took his side to 196 in their league opener, Ravinderpal Singh comes into our side as well with Nitish Kumar completing our picks from the side for this content.
CAN vs CAY All-Rounders
Where the batting order was dominated by players from Cayman Islands, this one is all about Cayman Islands. There is not one viable option from Canada, seeing us get in death overs bowler Conroy Wright and Alistair Ifill from the side, two players who are bound to get more than adequate time with both the bat and ball today.
Bowling Order for CAN vs CAY Dream11
When the two sides had met previously in the league, Canada’s clinical win came due to their bowlers complementing the batsmen who went onto record the highest score of the league till now. They truncated Cayman Islands’ innings at just 112, helping take Canada to colossal 84 run win, one Cayman Islands have never been able to recover from ever since.
This sees us rope in a trivalent of picks from Canada, getting in their deadly spinning duo of Junaid Siddique and Saad Bin Zafar along with the deadly pacer and highest wicket taker Dillon Heyliger.

Thomas is our captain for today while Navneet is selected as our vice-captain.
