CAY vs USA Dream11 : Both the sides head into today’s encounter of the league looking to snap free of a two match losing spree
With Cayman Islands and USA out of the running in for the top two spots in the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier Americas’ Region, today’s encounter is all about wrapping up the marquee league with a win to their names. While Cayman Islands remain the only side to yet register a win in the league, USA will be rueing their waning form, one which saw them slump down into third place.
After registering a win against Bermuda in their league opener, USA looked set to put in a strong bid for a spot in the top 2 and become one of the two sides to qualify for the World Cup 2020 T20 Qualifiers to be held later this year. However in a dismal unravelling of events, the side failed to unlock their true potential, massively underachieving to be defeated by Canada and Bermuda.
The defeat to Bermuda in their previous encounter saw curtains come down in their campaign, seeing today’s encounter against Cayman Islands hold much reduced value for them. Despite it being an inconsequential match, the level of cricket is bound to be competitiveness as USA look to end their sojourn with a win while Cayman Islands head out with ambitions of registering their first win in international cricket.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Although we have had no cricket for a day over here, giving the ground team time to work over the surface, we don’t envision massive changes today. This is a track which has proved as a massive determent for strokeplay, seeing the ball stop and come onto bat, making it extremely arduous to find the fence.
The side part of the encounter only worsens with the pitch crumbling and seeing the spinners come into full effect, meaning the side winning the toss will be definitely looking to bat first over here.
