CAN vs MAL Dream11 : Top of the table clash sees Canada and Malaysia vie it out for a chance to take an early lead over each other
The second round of fixtures in the first ever edition of the CWC Challenge League Group A encounters are upon us with Malaysia and Canada at loggerheads today. A massive tournamnet for the countries trying to find their footing in the international cricketing arena, our opponents of the day find themselves sitting in the annuls of the points tally after convincing wins in their league opener.
Constituted of six sides form the Asian region, the tournamnet was conceptualised with the agenda of giving these countries a chance to square off against level balance oppositions while at the same time showcase their skill set infront of a wider advent audience. And Canada who ended up qualifying for the upcoming T20 World Cup Qualifiers after winning the Americas Region set of qualifiers, emulated the same compelling form which has seen them emerge as a staunch outfit in the fraternity.
Playing against Vanuatu, the side’s stringent bowling unit ended bundling them over for just 160 before cruising past the chase with 5 wickets at hand in just 32 overs. It’s a performance which will make Malaysia wary, a side who themselves make for intimidating opponents after defeating Denmark by 44 runs as they restricted them to just 144 in their pursuit of Malaysia’s 192.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Rain could end up marring today’s clash with heavy clouds looming ominously over the surface with us likely to be in for a stop-start match. If rain does make a foray into the fray of this clash, the side winning the toss will be looking to field first in opposing to the eventuality of batting first if rain stays away.
Overall, this should be a reasonable enough wicket, one where the ball does come onto the bat nicely to allow the batters to free their arms with aplomb.

CAN vs MAL Match Prediction
Canada ended up qualifying for the T20 World Cup Qualifiers in the wake of some impressive displays and we see them emulating those same displays today as well Malaysia managed to register a win in their first match but the vulnerability in their batting unit is vehemently known, something which should peg them back from getting a second win today.

CAN vs MAL Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Malaysia’s opener and wicket-keeper, Shafiq Sharif is our pick in this facet. He failed in the previous encounter but is a bat who as over the course delivered some displays for his side on a persistent basis, helping lay down the platform for the side to put on challenging targets infront of their opponents.
CAN vs MAL Dream11 Batsmen
At a time when Sharif failed for the side, Virandeep Singh, the second opener for Malaysia ensured that the massive setback didn’t leave the side in angst. His knock of 46 augured well for the side, helping Malaysia find their footing in their bid to post a healthy score infront of Denmark, seeing us get him in for today’s clash.
Elsewhere we have gone in with the two players from Canada, both of them names who revelled us in a dauntless display of batting the last time around. Quissential in Canada’s successful run chase, Ravinderpal Singh scored 38 in the lower middle-order while opener Navneet Dhaliwal cantered his way to a meticulously crafted 72, a knock laden with boundaries.
CAN vs MAL Dream11 All-Rounders
The best picks from Malaysia come in over here, specialist performers who have encapsulated their skill set to perfection to contribute with both the bat and ball for their skill. We are opting for three performers from the side, all players who took the accountability on themselves to deliver incisive performers.
We being with Norwira Zazmie who sent down a sensational spell of 4-24 to besmirch Denmark’s effort with the bat, pairing him alongside Syed Aziz and Suharril Fetri who stifled the opposition with the two wickets apiece. Elsewhere from Canada we are choosing only the one player in the form of Nitish Kumar.
CAN vs MAL Dream11 Bowling Order
Malaysia showed their lacklustre quality with the bat the last time around, something which Canada will capitalise on to catapult the opponent’s wickets at will. It’s a narrative which is extremely plausible, taking paramount precedence for us in today’s prevelant encounter to base our entire bowling order around their side.
We begin with Cecil Pervez, someone who has enjoyed consummate success to halt opponents from taking his bowling apart. Saad Bin-Zafar and Dillon Heyliger got four wickets in between them the last time around, the two apiece as they took wickets at crucial junctures to come into our Dream 11 side as well.
