CAN vs NIG Dream11 : Canada strive to continue on their winning ways as they look to spruce up their spot against an agonising Nigeria side today.
A stoked Canada side will be extremely happy with the fixture they have forthcoming in the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 qualification event today. Taking on a Nigeria side which has looked drab to be handed out some severe drubbings, Canada will be knowing that anything ranging from a sensible performance to a clinical showing will ensure they end up emerging unscathed from today’s clash.
For Nigeria, the tournamnet has been a rude shock, one which has awakened and jolted them to make them understand the level of the sides they are competing against this tournamnet. The side succumbed to a hefty 69 run defeat against Jersey in their previous encounter, falling to a torrid defeat with both their batting and bowling compartments falling apart in unison in leave the side languishing to a sorry result.
Letting Jersey make 184 while batting first, Nigeria refused to steady things and give Jersey a go in the run chase either, faltering in their pursuit as they failed to prevail to anything even close to a semblance of a run chase. It was a target which was extremely daunting, seeing Nigeria being dismissed with disdain to wrap up their pursuit of the score at just 116.
Elsewhere, Canada come into today’s encounter having defeated the same Jersey side which saw it so easy to cut short and blow apart Nigeria’s aspirations. They ended up winning by 53 runs, scoring 176 before defending it equally well to see Jersey be limited to just 123. Given the way both these sides rummaged through their previous round of encounters, today’s match looks to be a foregone conclusion already, one where Canada should end up cruising their way to a comfortable win.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Batting is difficult on this surface with anything around 150 while batting first more than adequate to make life extremely jittery for the side chasing. The surface will act sluggishly, seeing the ball grip onto the surface and turn either way right from the onset, making this a match where the bowler will be looking to take pace off the ball.
Not really much to go on when it comes to toss but the side winning it would be looking to bat first today.

CAN vs NIG Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
He managed to get 17 runs for Nigeria in a batting display by the side which was only on the decline right from ball one, a performance which sees us imbibe some kind of confidence in him. The side’s captain is capable of putting in a rebuffed performance, one which can try and rescue his side from the despair they find themselves in and try and curb their decline come today.
CAN vs NIG Dream11 Batsmen
Where Nigeria have been an agonising sight while batting, the side have failed to muster up anything better in their bowling travails either. It has been extremely easy to leave them in tatters and Canada could further their misery come today, seeing us pick out the main bats from their side for this clash.
Opener Navneet Dhaliwal comes in as the first pick for us after getting 36 in just 26 balls in the side’s previous encounter with opener Rodrigo Thomas coming as well after the two put on a 51 run partnership in the side’s last tie. His 21 runs see us pick up Nicholas Kirton as well to complete our set of three bats from the side for this encounter.
CAN vs NIG Dream11 All-Rounders
Nigeria’s top scorer in the previous match with 39 runs, opener Adeleke Oyede was always going to be the first player to be cantered into our side from the unit for this clash. The all-rounder is well capable of emoting the same display come today and try and hold fort for his side in a match where their batting setup will be tested to the fore.
Elsewhere with 83 runs in 46 balls, we are bringing in Nitish Kumar from Canada, someone who will especially be eyeing up Nigeria’s paper thin bowling unit today to pile on the runs in this content.
CAN vs NIG Dream11 Bowling Order
With Nigeria always vulnerable of collapsing infront of wicket to wicket bowling, anything which threatens them in even the slightest manner, we had to pick up the three bowlers from Canada for this clash. This is a surface which will help the bowlers as well, a surface where we just don’t see the Nigerians being able to craft out anything worthwhile.
This sees us bring in Dillion Heyliger who took 3-20 in the side’s last match along with Saad Bin-Zafar and Jeremy Gordon who got 3-14. As Canada look to slash out at every ball in the death overs, they are bound to lose wickets in their attempt to up the ante, seeing us choose Nigeria’s death overs operators in the form of Abiodun Abioye and Vincent Adewoye.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Dillion is our captain for today’s encounter with Nitish being brought in as the vice-captain.
