TOR vs WH Dream11 : Coming off spectacular run chases in their previous encounters, today’s opponents look to build on the momentum accumulated from their stellar showings
Chasing down targets in excess of 200 in their last outings in Global T20 Canada league, for both Toronto Nationals and Winnipeg Hawks, today’s match against each other is about resonating the same incredible display. Placed adjacent to each other in the annuls of the league table, both sides look to keep snapping at Brampton Wolves heels with a win today.
After losing their first match of the league with a harrowing batting performance seeing them concede an 8 wicket win, for Toronto Nations, the batting woes went onto continue in the subsequent encounter. Chasing a massive 192 run target set to them by Edmonton Royals, the Nations fell apart towards the culminating stags of their run chase with a defeat imminent after they lost wicket-keeper Henrikh Klassen at 124-4.
Needing 68 runs in 34 balls with two new bowlers out in the middle, a defeat looked all but certain for the National before they pulled off one of the biggest rescue acts. Decimating the Royals in the death overs, National went onto chase down the total with 2 wickets and an astonishing 7 balls to spare, pulling off an incredible run chase.
Elsewhere Winnipeg Hawks prevailed in their own massive pursuit of Vancouver Knights’ 208, a win which was of paramount importance to the side after the trouncing they had suffered in the opening match of the league. Chris Lynn(74) and JP Duminy(77) ensured that in the end the side ended up cruising to the two points, peeling off the hefty score in just 15.2 overs to pull off an incredible run chase.
With both the sides exactly same when it comes to the team composition, this match is going to be an edge of the seat thriller. Both these units have suffered the aberrations of paper thing bowling setups but their clean hitters across the batting order have helped paper over the cracks of their dwindling bowling setup.
We see the Royals just about scraping through to a win here given their most well-versed, experienced and technically sound batsmen.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Being the first match of the day, expect this to be an incredibly fine batting surface. Despite us having daily matches on this surface, the pitch hasn’t detoriate at all, allowing the batsmen to come out and hit the ball to the fence right from ball one. And with these two sides hitting almost 400 runs in between them in their lat outings, expect this to be another colossal scorer, one where the side winning the toss will be looking to chase first.
