CAN vs SIN Dream11 : Second placed Singapore make an advent with aspirations of displacing Canada from top spot
Two of the best sides in the CWC Challenge League Group A going at loggerheads today means only one thing. We have a jaffer of a match at our disposal, a contest which promises to be a real humdinger, bestowed with worldclass and myriad performers who’ll leave no stone unturned to outbid each other.
Currently sitting in first place, Canada see themselves remain the only unscathed side in the league after their four matches. The side won their previous clash by a whopping 48 runs against Denmark in a match which was spoilt by rain, giving Denmark a revised score after Canada piled on an incredible 302 runs while batting first.
Needing 220 to win in 33 overs, Denmark were able to muster up only 172 with Canada’s ability to pick up wickets at regular intervals leaving the side in disarray in their bid of getting past the finishing line. Elsewhere, Singapore find themselves sitting in second place, a position they’ll be looking to consolidate in their favour when they face off against Canada today who look improbable to be budged from first place.
With the three wins and the one defeat from four matches, Singapore find themselves having accumulated 6 points in their tally. The last match saw them emerge as winners by 4 wickets against Malaysia, a low scoring encounter where the side managed to preserve amongst sticky batting conditions to chase down the 202 run target set infront of the.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With rain an ever impending threat given the heavy cloud cover looming ominously over the track and the immense grass left on the surface, we have had extremely tricky batting conditions over here. The pacers have loved this track, getting the ball to massively deviate, leaving batsmen in tatters in their bid to ply their skill set on this wicket.
Today promises to be no different, leading the side winning the toss opting to come out and field first on this surface.

CAN vs SIN Match Prediction
Although Singapore have found it extremely easy to dismiss the rest of their counterparts, in Canada they face a completely different proposition. This is a side which has impressed everyone with their ability to rake up hefty runs on the toughest and trickiest of wickets with their immense depth coming to the fore to emerge as the most complete side in the league.
It’s what sees the balance swing heavily in their favour under these conditions with a win in Canada’s result set to be the outcome for today.

CAN vs SIN Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Canada’s Srimantha Wijeyeratne is our pick for this facet with the wicket-keeper scoring 84 runs yesterday, an innings which was eventually brought to an end by a run-out. He looks likely to score good runs today as well, seeing him be included in our side despite not keeping wickets for our side.
CAN vs SIN Dream11 Batsmen
Dismissing bowling units with effervescent ease, taking them apart and dispatching them to the cleaners, Canada have been the side to watch out for when it comes to the batting front. With three scores in succession of above 300, the side come into the wake of today’s encounter having made of mockery of every bowling unit and emulating the same performance looks the easiest likelihood from today’s match.
This made it paramount for us to give their batsmen paramount importance when crafting out this slot, seeing us get in opener Rodrigo Thomas and Ravinderpal Singh into outside from the outfit. Elsewhere we are choosing the duo of Navin Param and Timothy David from Singapore with David scoring a match winning unbeaten 95 in 81 balls for the side the last time around, one which saw him smash his way to the fence on 12 occasions.

Canada’s Nitish Kumar is our first player over here with him being handed an escalated role with both the bat and ball for his side. Meanwhile from Singapore we have gone in with their opener Rohan Rangarajan with the opener get a solid set of overs with the ball as well, one which saw him pickup two wickets in the side’s previous win.
CAN vs SIN Dream11 Bowling Order
Given the pitch conditions and the very realistic chance of both the sides collapsing under wicket to wicket, menacing bowling, we decided to rope in the four bowlers over here, getting in two apiece from either side.
