And its served them extremely judiciously, seeing the side sit pretty at the top of the points table after having registered 3 wins in 3 matches.
They began with a 10 wicket win over Montreal Tigers, bundling them out for the lowest total this season with the side cleaned apart for just 101 before going onto resonate the same flawless showing with the ball against Winnipeg Hawks. The 7 wicket win came after they successfully chased down the petty 117 run target set to them, an extremely small and dwindling target which Brampton Wolves were able to navigate past with comfort.
Elsewhere for their opponents for today, it’s the bowling department which has let them down. Despite the batsmen going onto score 216 against Winnipeg Hawks, the bowlers failed to defend what should have been more than enough runs on the scoreboard to give the Nationals their second defeat of the season. It pushed them down to fifth position, clenching onto the barest of margins as they look to make it into the top 4 and progress to the ensuing round.
