ERO vs BRW Dream11 : Crafting an extraordinary 10 wicket day in their league opener, Brampton Wolves look to make it two wins on the bounce today
They might have been the last team to play in the Global T20 Canada league but Brampton Wolves showed that the wait to see them in action was worth it. Delivering the most emphatic bowling performance of the league till now, the side reserved the best for last, as they went onto craft a luscious 10 wicket win to see themselves sit in the echelons of the league standings.
Playing against Montreal Tigers yesterday, Brampton Wolves went onto dismiss them for a mere 101 with Tigers going onto lose their way after the departure of Kyle Coetzer. His way back to the pavilion for 26 at 53-2 began a shambolic collapse for the Tigers with the side going onto lose 9 wickets for a mere 49 runs with 7 of their batsmen failing to cross double digits.
And it took their openers a mere 6.4 overs to pull off the chase with Lendl Simmons going onto score 37 while George Munsey did the brunt of the scoring to see the side register a vociferous 10 wicket win. Elsewhere, playing earlier in the day, their opponents on the day suffered a stunning defeat as they fell apart in the final overs of their defence.
Putting on a healthy 191 while batting first, Edmonton Royals looked assured of a win with Toronto Nationals looking to be out of the match when they went onto lose the settled Henrikh Klaasen at 124-6. Needing 68 runs to win in 34 balls with two new bowlers at the crease for them, the Nationals pulled off the unbelievable as they plundered the runs with 7 balls to spare, leaving Royals ruing what looked to be a certain win.
With both the sides going onto score incredible scores yesterday, expect this to be a similar encounter. What sees the scales titled in Brampton Wolves’ favour is their bowling line-up, one which could easily emulate their ravishing showing from yesterday.
And with Edmonton Royals in a spot of bother themselves in the middle stages before cameos from the lower middle-order, the side might be perturbed once again today in their quest to put on a big score. We see Brampton Wolves winning this one and retaining their place at the top of the table.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
The one thing we have learnt from the opening encounters is that the people in charge of the league have clearly eyed high scoring matches in a bid to increase the viewership of the league. The ground is extremely small with 60m boundaries lining up the straight regions at mid-off and mid-on. This is going to be a big run scorer with the side winning the toss looking to chase over here.

His pick is followed up by the second opener for Brampton Wolves, George Munsey after he ended up cleaning out the Tigers yesterday. His 67 run knock were as special as they come, a true innings of complete exuberance and clean hitting and in the wake on that knock he walks into our side.

With spinners flourishing on this wicket, especially the legspinners, with the balls delivered at a faster trajectory, skidding and smashing into the batsmen’s wickets and pads we have gotten in Ish Sodhi from Brampton Royals. He picked up five wickets against the Tigers and is bound to get wickets today as well given the nature of the opposition’s batting line-up.
Wahab Riaz comes in from the side as well while we Shadab Khan be selected from the Royals. He was decimated with the ball but ended up getting some runs with the bat and could do so today as well. Kyle Phillip comes in as well with two wickets to complete our Dream 11 side.
