TOR vs WH Dream11 Team Prediction: Eliminator sees Toronto and Winnipeg take on each other for a shot at playing the second qualifier.
Toronto National’ resurgence in the second edition of the Global T20 Canada is one that deserves all the plaudits. Struggling at a time to string together two wins, languishing in the dearth of the points tally, the side went onto record two straight wins in their previous couple of matches to head into the eliminator as the third placed side in the league.
It’s been an incredible turn of results for the side, one which the side will be looking to emulate when they take on Winnipeg Hawks today, a team they ended up displacing to occupy third place yesterday. With both these sides coming bearing batting heavy units in this encounter, expect this to be a run fest, one where the batting orders of both the sides will emerge on top to grab control of the encounter.
While the Nationals defeated Montreal Tigers yesterday by a massive 35 runs, scoring 189 before bundling Montreal Tigers for 154, Winnipeg Hawks come into the fixture having been defeated by the Edmonton Royals. It was a chastening defeat for the side as they filed to defend even 195 as the Royals ended up mincing their score with 16 balls and 8 wickets to spare.
It’s a result Winnipeg Hawks will be wishing doesn’t disrupt their campaign too much when they take on a side who are going to be clearly heading into the encounter with massive momentum behind them. This should be a jaffer of a match, one which regales us in a fine brand of cricket as the two sides look to canter their way into the second qualifier today.

Pitch Conditions and Toss
This is going to be an incredible batting surface, one akin to the one we have been treated to across the league. The runs will come in heavily on this wicket, making strokeplay as easy as it comes with a score of 200 by both the sides extremely plausible. The side winning the toss will be looking to field on this surface with the side chasing winning 90% of the matches here.

Dream 11 Picks for TOR vs WH Dream11
Wicket-keepers for TOR vs WH Dream11
With 64 yesterday, a knock that came out in just 34 balls as Heinrich Klassen went about blasting his way past Montreal Tigers to ensure the side went onto record a huge score, the wicket-keeper from the Nationals in our undisputed pick from the side. He’s helped imbed a platform in the middle-order for the side, an area which was pushing back the outfit in their quest of winning this league and should score big today as well.
Batsmen for TOR vs WH Dream11
His 70 run knock yesterday in the opening slot once again epitomised just how fine a bat Rodrigo Thomas is. The outfit’s highest scorer this campaign, he’s been one of the pivotal reasons for them making unprecedented strides and against a dwindling bowling unit we expect him to score big again.
He’s accompanied by fellow opener Chirag Suri while our duo from the opposition also consists of their openers. With 89 in 48 balls when these two outfits squared off against each other in the previous match, Lynn along with Shaiman Anwar(43) put on some good runs, one added to by the middle-order to see the side peel down 216.
All-rounders for TOR vs WH Dream11
Given his high spot in the batting order along with the ability to bowl an over as well, Jean-Paul Duminy comes in from Winnipeg Hawks for us. On the other hand we have opted for the deadly partnership of Moises Henriques and Chris Green from the Nationals with Green particularly being someone which has made heads turn with his displays in the league.
His spell of 3-26 was an incredible one, a performance right up there in the pinnacles of bowling performances this edition of the league. His offspin has been wicket to wicket, sent down at a faster trajectory to leave batsmen cramped for room, making it tough to get under his balls. Elsewhere while Henriques hasn’t gotten much time with the ball, his number three batting position makes him a player to have.
Bowlers for TOR vs WH Dream11
With figures of 3-27 yesterday, pacer Mitchell McCleneghan comes in for us along with Salman Nazar while our lone pick from Winnipeg Hawks is of Mohammed Irfan. He comes onto bowl in the death overs period, a time when he’s ascertained to pick up wickets.
