ERO vs BRW Dream11 : Brampton Wolves look to make it five wins out of six when they step out for their final group stage encounter today
Tuesday sees us beginning the wrap up of the group stage matches in the second edition of the Global T20 Canada league with table toppers Brampton Wolves taking on Edmonton Royals. Sitting in the echelons of the league standings with five wins from five, Brampton Wolves head out today looking to continue their rapturous run as they look to head into the qualifiers with a win
When the second edition of the league made an advent into the cricketing fraternity, looking to reach out to an area currently bereft of cricket, Brampton Wolves were exactly the kind of side everyone yearned to be. The team have been the epitome of what all is needed by a complete cricketing team, having at their services a staunch batting unit which has been perfectly assisted by a clinical bowling order.
However the side finally managed to slip up after a run of four successive wins with their batting unit collapsing in the previous encounter against Vancouver Knights. Sent packing for a crumbling 138 runs, Brampton wolves’ immense bowling unit failed to live upto the massive expectations accorded from them as the side were put down by 8 wickets for their first defeat of the league.
However, the side will not allow that defeat to disrupt what has been an otherwise pinch perfect campaign for them till now. And they are up against the perfect opposition as well today as they look to return from their disappointing defeat, taking on Edmonton Royals who have managed to win just one match till now.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With a break of a day in the league, much needed time far the ground management to tune out the pitch and provide it with the treatment needed, we are going to be dished out excellent batting conditions. This has conventionally been an exquisite batting surface as well, one where hitting boundaries at will has been extremely easy coupled with the small boundaries.
The side winning the toss will be looking to bowl first with this an undeniably chasing track.
Probable Playing 11

Lendl Simmons (WK), Colin Munro(C), George Munsey, Andre Fletcher, Nitish Kumar, Babar Hayat, Shahid Afridi, Nawab Singh, Wahab Riaz, Ish Sodhi, Cecil Pervez
Anshuman Rath (WK), Akash Gill, Richie Berrington, Navneet Dhaliwal, Ben Cutting, James Neesham, Mohammad Hafeez (C), Safyaan Sharif, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Kyle Phillip
Despite Brampton Wolves losing their first match and Edmonton Royals winning their first match the last time around, don’t expect it to have any bearing on this encounter. Brampton Wolves are an exceptional bowling unit, one that should manage to restrict a heavy Edmonton Royals batting unit within an achievable score to seal their position as league toppers.

Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for ERO vs BRW Dream11
When these two teams had played each other the last time around, Lendl Simmons had gone off to peel 59 runs in 34 balls, providing his side with the perfect foundation to build from. It saw Brampton Wolves put on a massive 207 on the board, one which ensured they took an 18 run win and we are roping in Lendl Simmons as our wicket-keeper for this match.
With 87 from 50 balls, one that saw him hammer four 6s and nine 4s to ensure his side were able to cruise past the 196 run target set to them, Edmonton Royals’ wicket-keeper, Anshuman Rath is also picked up by us.
Batsmen for ERO vs BRW Dream11
With a man of the match performance against Toronto Nationals as he hit 66 in 36 balls in the opening slot, George Munsey from Brampton Wolves is our first pick over here. The batsman has been pivotal to the side’s chances and he’s played out some astute knocks with conviction and we envisage him getting a big score today as well.
His captain Colin Munro comes in as well along with Babar Hayat as we pick out all the talismen from the side, names who have helped fulfil the aspirations of the side in this tenure of the league. Nitish Kumar is also included by us with us expecting this to be a runs galore and he offers decent value at his price of 8 credits.
All-Rounders for ERO vs BRW Dream11
With a dire need of compensating our side with picks from Edmonton Royals, especially in the batting order, we are roping in Ben Cutting and James Neesham. While they are batsmen who are more than capable of coming out and opening their arms in the death overs, they can be elevated up the order as well if the side need someone to stabilise things.
Along with their acumen with the bat, these two hold vital roles with the ball as well with Cutting picking up 2 wickets the last time around, making them crucial players to have in our side.
Bowling Order for ERO vs BRW Dream11
Shadab Khan and Kyle Phillip are our picks from Edmonton Royals with the one area where Brampton Wolves are still yearning for perfection is the batting order. They are known to crumble down cheaply in the face of adversity and this might see this duo snare a bagful of wickets as they look to stifle their innings.
Our only pick from Brampton Wolves is of Cecil Pervez.
Captain And Vice-Captain
George Munsey is being named our captain for this one while Lendl Simmons is the vice-captain.
