With both the sides emulating each other’s journeys till now in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019, for both the sides this match comes as a colossal one. It’s a prospective top of the table decider, a fixture which could very well end up ensuring which out of our two opponents for the day finishing up in the pinnacles of Group.
With six wins from eight matches in between them with the three wins from four matches apiece for either side, both Oman and Canada have thrived in the ongoing edition of the qualifiers. In fact, Canada were handed over their first defeat of the tournament yesterday only after winning three matches in succession after the side faltered in front of Hong Kong as they lost their way in their run chase.
Needing 151 to win, Canada kept losing wickets at regular intervals, failing to put on partnerships of note as the side were persistently pegged back to see their sortie come to a conclusion at 118-9. The 32 runs win deterred them from moving above their opponents of today on points, something they’ll be looking to do today as they look to make amends for their bygone clash.
Elsewhere, their opponents come into today’s match having routed and thumped Nigeria by 7 wickets as they chased down the 71 run target in front of them in a mere 7 overs. It was a performance which bodes for them as they take on a massively elevated opponent today, a Canada side which will descend upon this encounter looking to continue its marauding ways in the T20 arena.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
The brunt of brute cricket being played over here at a hectic rate part of the congested schedule has seen the wicket break down and crumble, seeing the spinners come into full effect. Run scoring is an extremely tepid and dicey task with the batsmen being left in tatters on a surface which only gets more treacherous as the match enters into the fray of the second part.
The side winning the toss today will be looking to come out and bat first and get anything close to 150.

Suraj Kumar from Oman is picked as our side’s wicket-keeper for today’s encounter with the wicket-keeper being someone who can come out and amass runs with ease in the death overs. On this kind of track, every single run in the final period will count massively, a discourse which could see him earn an escalated spot in the side’s batting order.
A major reason or Canada losing against Hong Kong yesterday and being handed over their first defeat in the T20 fraternity in 2019 was due to their batting order. The peril and plight of the unit were well evident with the outfit managing to just about squirm their way to wins despite despondent batting performances but the batsmen finally collapsed yesterday to leave the side aghast.
They’ll be looking to resolve that predicament come today with Navneet Dhaliwal playing an integral role in the side’s batting order. The side’s captain has been their most pivotal player with the opener handing over a foundation to the side consistently with his dependable displays to see him come into our setup alongside Rodrigo Thomas. From the other side meanwhile, we are moving in with opener Jatinder Singh whose 22 balls 48 run knock in the previous encounter saw his side cruise to a win.
When you are going to open your side’s batting order and get assured four overs with the ball as well, you have to become a player to have in Dream 11. Khawar Ali is a player who comes bearing an identify akin, seeing him become an instant selection for us given the vital spot he’s been handed over by his side to ply his skill set in both the batting and bowling order with aplomb.
His 4-14 against Nigeria blew apart the side, ripping them apart and making light work of them, seeing us get in Aamir Kaleem as well from the side whilst from the opposition we are going in with Nitish Kumar after he got the 19 runs and one wicket in the previous match.
Given the nature of the wicket and the vulnerability of both these sides to fall apart and imbed in place a shambolic batting collapse under the slightest bit if well-delivered line and length, we are heavily packing up our bowling unit by bringing in the four bowlers. We begin with Canada, a side which has an entire trivalent of options being opted by us in the form of Dillon Heyliger, Jeremy Gordon and Saad Bin-Zafar, all bowlers who struck once for the side yesterday.
The singular pick Bilal Khan from the opposition will be wrapping up our Dream 11 setup with the bowlers snaring three wickets to leave Nigeria in a tussle the last time around.

Paul is our captain for this match while we are making Janak the vice-captain.
