MON vs BRW Dream11 : Montreal Tigers look to make it two wins on the bounce after blowing apart Toronto Nationals on day 1 of the league
Sitting right in pinnacle of the league standings, Montreal Tigers couldn’t have asked for a better way to open their campaign in the 2019 edition of the Global T20 Canada league. It was as clinical a win as they come, performance which ended up making light work of Toronto Nationals in the league’s opener.
Playing the first match of GT20, Montreal Tigers showed that they meant business. After peppering Winnipeg Hawks with an exquisite bowling display, the Tigers defended their colossal 135 runs crafted in 12 overs by the side. The 24 run win came courtesy of their bowlers stalling Winnipeg for 111-5, picking up wickets at crucial junctures as they didn’t allow any partnership to flourish.
And it’s a performance the side will be looking to emanate today as well when they take on Brampton Wolves who will be playing their first ever encounter in the league today. The side might not be as complete as their opposition for the day but in Colin Munro and Lendl Simmons, they have two names who can singlehandedly take the opponent’s bowling line-up apart.
With this being Brampton Wolves’ first match of the league and Montreal Tigers already having registered a massive win, we are going to be putting our money on the Tigers for this one. It’s not just that narrative which pegs the encounter in their favour but the fact that they have a more well-rounded and well tuned bowling line-up, seeing the side have at their disposal a slew of bowling options to choose from.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
The side winning the toss will be looking to bat first and manoeuvre their way towards a good total on a pitch which will heavily favour the batsmen. The surface might just slow down in the second part, making it a little tricky to chase down anything in excess of 170 over here.
Probable Playing 11
Lot of names will be unavailable for this encounter with the players currently being a part of their country’s international ongoing series. Thisara Perera and Shakib Al Hassan are both going to miss the early part of their side’s matches for this match.
Sunil Narine, Kyle Coetzer, Anton Devcich, George Bailey (c), Bupinder Singh, Matthew Cross (wk), Mohammad Naveed, Nikhil, Fawad Ahmed, Dillon Heyliger, Sean Abbott
Lendl Simmons, George Munsey, Colin Munro, Babar Hayat, Rohan Mustafa, Nitish Kumar, Darren Sammy, Shahid Afridi (C), Abraash Khan, Wahab Riaz, Zahoor Khan

Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for MON vs BRW Dream11
Matthew Cross from the Tigers is our pick for this one. He didn’t get an opportunity to come out and bat for a long period in the previous encounter but his show with gloves was a solid one with the wicket-keeper not letting go of anything that fell his way.
Batsmen for MON vs BRW Dream11
Our batting department is going to be heavily packed given the alluring selection of picks served up our way. The choices to pick out from are spectacular and we are going to indulge ourselves in 5 players with the pitch being conducive to pure, clean strokeplay.
The Tigers have their opener Kyle Coetzer come in despite not finding himself among the runs in the previous match. Number 4 bat and captain of his side, George Bailey was unlucky to be runout in the previous encounter but he comes bearing with him the identity of his side’s most experienced and one of the most solid bat in the side.
Elsewhere from Brampton we have picked up their opener Colin Munro and Lendl Simons. Munro didn’t have the best of World Cup’s seeing himself eventually dropped towards the closing stages but the shortest format of the game is one we loves. His free hitting style of strokeplay should see him blast him way to a nice little score today and enjoy this track.
Darren Sammy comes in as well from the side.
All-Rounders for MON vs BRW Dream11
With Sunil Narine opening for the Tigers and going onto score 59 in yesterday’s encounter, he is our first pick in this facet. With him bound to deliver 4 overs in the match as well, all-rounders who hold roles like him in their side make for picks who have to be snatched up immediately.
We are also picking up Sean Abbot from the side after picking up 1-20 in the 3 overs he sent down. It was a strong little spell from him, seeing him bowl a restrictive line and length, becoming one of the rare bowlers to go for only 6 runs per over in a match where 111 where scored in 12 overs.
Bowling Order for MON vs BRW Dream11
With 2-26 in his spell, Tigers’ frontline pacer Mohammad Naveed is our pick from the side for this fixture. Spinner Fahad Ahmed is chosen as well with spin always a tepid ask to peel off in the shortest format of the game and given the identity of bats that Brampton have.
Wahab Riaz from Brampton complete our Dream 11 side for this match.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We are going ahead with Colin Munro to captain our side for today while Sunil Narine is the vice-captain.
