CAN vs USA Dream11 : Canada and USA fight it out for top spot today as either side looks to consolidate a spot in the top 2
Both USA and Canada entered the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier America’s Region as firm favourites to seal the two slots available for qualification to the World Cup Qualifiers and both of today’s opponents have fully lived upto their stature. With stunning and stellar wins over lower ranked Bermuda and Cayman Islands, the two outfits find themselves placed in the echelons of the league standings ahead of their all important face off against each other today.
Following up a win against Bermuda on the opening day of the four team league, with a clinical 10 wicket win against Cayman Islands yesterday. A rain curtailed encounter saw them limit Cayman Islands to just 68 runs before eventually marauding their way towards the target at hand to occupy top spot in the league.
It’s a spot though which Canada will be looking to make their own when they face off against USA today after missing out on the full points against Bermuda. With incessant rain intervening to leave Canada infuriated in their clash against Bermuda, the side find themselves in second place after defeating Cayman Islands by a colossal 84 runs earlier in the league.

CAN vs USA Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keeper for CAN vs USA Dream11
Jaskaran Malhotra from USA comes into our side as the wicket-keeper for this impending encounter. He scored 38 in the side’s opening day win over Bermuda, taking his tally to 90 runs in 4 T20 clashes and is set to add to it today given the application and technique he possesses in his artillery.
Batsmen for CAN vs USA Dream11
Prior to yesterday’s clash, Steven Taylor had 138 runs in 4 matches for his side, along with a high score of 72 and his performance against Cayman Islands only went onto show why he’s so important to his side’s cause in this league. With Canada having an extremely astute bowling unit, Taylor will need to score good for his side again today, something we can easily given his willingness to spend time out in the middle.
From Canada we have Rodrigo Thomas come into our side despite the batsman having to achieve his full potential till now. He’s coming off an extremely fruitful Global T20 Canada league, one that saw him flourish to emerge as one of the best bat with 291 runs in 7 encounters. The only player to have managed a century in the league till now, Ravinderpal Singh from Canada comes in as well after his 101 runs against Caymans Island.
Nitish Kumar comes in from the side as well as we opt for an entire trivalent of pick from Canada given the batting might at their disposal.
All-Rounders for CAN vs USA Dream11
With their being no viable picks from Canada for this segment, we have decided to pick out the lone player here, coming in the form of Hayden Walsh from USA. With two good performances in the wake of UA’s two wins on the bounce, the all-rounder should be a nice fit for this encounter, someone who both scores and takes wickets today.
Bowling Order for CAN vs USA Dream11
With 5 wickets in 2 encounters, Canada’s pacer Dillon Heyliger has taken on the brunt of coming up with early breakthroughs perfectly for his side. The pacer has been at the forefront of their bowling attack, sending down ominous rippers to entrap batsmen before the wickets with ease.
We have spinner Saad Bin Zafar come in as well despite him yet to find himself among a slew of wickets while from USA we have picked up Cameron Gannon and Nisarg Patel with the two of them sharing 5 wickets in between them till now.
