TOR vs ERO Dream11 Team Picks and Probable Playing 11: Today’s clash in the Global T20 Canada League sees Toronto Nationals take on Edmonton Royals.
They had managed to assemble an exuberant set of players for the second instalment of Global T20 Canada but the way Toronto Nationals collapsed in their opening encounter of the league, it brought back their aberration from last season. Despite lining up their side with some worldclass batsmen, the Nationals fell apart like a house of cards with some of their heavy picks showing that perhaps their time in the cricketing fraternity has come to an end.
If it wasn’t for the run innings by wicket-keeper Heinrich Klassen and the 30 runs added on by Kieron Pollard in a 31 run partnership in the death overs, the Nationals were finding it tough to even string together the 159 runs they were able to fathom at the end of the match. Ultimately they hardly made a difference with their bowlers being dismissed with disdain as they went onto lose by 8 wickets.
And it’s that performance which the side will be looking to put behind them when they take on Edmonton Royals today in their second match of the league. For the Royals meanwhile, this league opener would be all about seeing how their newly assembled bunch of players performance in today as they look to build a successful framework of success for the side.
As far as the two teams go, the Royals clearly have a more astute and well-versed bunch of players. Unlike the Nationals, they have gone in with players who are astounding cricketing brains, lining the side up with exuberant performers like Kane Williamson, Faf du Plessis and James Neesham.
For us, the Royals should win this one courtesy of their batting strength and leave the Nationals suffering an aberration of stringing together a bunch of players known only for their ways to lash out at every ball.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With two matches having being played on this surface, the track has settled down nicely now with whatever purchase available for the bowlers vanishing. This should be a surface cut out from the same cloth as some of the best batting wickets in the world, one where the runs will rain. Toss should hardly make any difference to the final verdict of this match but the side winning the toss might choose to step out and bat first.

Dream 11 Picks
After his 40 run innings, the only one of any worth in an otherwise horrendous batting display by his side’s stalwarts, the inclusion of Henrikh Klaasen from Toronto Nationals doesn’t need any justification.
When you have Kane Williamson and Faf du Plessis at your disposal, you have to immerse yourself in both these massive names without any further hesitations. And that’s what we did as well, getting both of these colossal names into our batting order unanimously with us expecting these two piling on the runs for the Royals today.
Coming from Toronto Nationals is Yuvraj Singh and opener Rodrio Thomas who’s 40 run knock massively impressed us with the way he thwarted the opposition bowlers at a time when the water in the pitch was making it tough to cue the ball.
James Neesham emerged as one of New Zealand’s most vital player in their momentous outing in the CWC, one which saw them make it all the way to the summit clash and he’s walking into our side straightaway. A more than handy bat and someone who is more than certain to get his full 4 overs of pace, Neesham could turn out to be one of the highest run getters from the encounter.
Ben Cutting comes in from the side as well while we have gone in with Kieron Pollard from the Nationals after he managed to score 30 the last time around.
The two selections from the Royals in this final segment of our side see us opt for Shadab Khan and Safyaan Sharif with the Nationals showing that their batting line-up is one which can be incurred to collapse shambolically. From the Nationals elsewhere we have gone in with one of their two wicket takers from the previous match, Mark Montfort for this match.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have selected Kane Williamson to be our side’s captain today while James Neesham is the captain. Incase Williamson doesn’t play, we are going to pick out Neesham as the captain and Ben Cutting as the vice-captain.
Dream 11 Advice
With teams partaking in the tournament in a hectic and congested schedule, one which sees several countries play on consecutive days, there is a likelihood of sides changing their playing 11’s for every match. Our side is picked based on the best performers for each side with us picking up players based on their pivotal role and importance to the team paired with their recent performances, toss and pitch conditions.
