The side are undefeated in their four matches till now, showcasing both their batting and bowling might across their fruitful results to stamp their authority as firm favourites for the glistening title.
Where they had gone onto bundle out sides for cheap totals in their previous encounters, yesterday saw them show the immense batting might at their perusal as well as they stepped out to bat first. Facing off against Toronto Nationals, the side went onto register a massive 222-6 before going onto hold onto their composure and get past the finishing line after they restricted the Nationals to 211.
The 11 run win saw them become the first side to step into the semi-finals of the league, an achievement they’ll like to celebrate with another win as they wrap up their group stage matches today. They are up against Vancouver Knights, a side who themselves are assured of a top 4 spot given the way the other fixtures shaped up yesterday and their 6 wicket win against the Royals previously.

Dream 11 Picks
He might have only scored 19 yesterday but that failure is not going to deter us from picking Lendl Simmons as our wicket-keeper for this one. He’s descend on the league with an immense repertoire of batting abilities at his disposal, utilising them perfectly as well to come up with runs on a consistent basis for his side.
From VK we are getting in Chadwick Walton with him being a name who has impressed us the most till now. In a league filled to the brim with exceptional names, he’s emerged as one of the most promising performers, standing tall amongst the worldclass batsmen in the number three spot.
He took time to get going but the last two matches have seen Vancouver Knights’ opener, Chris Gayle go onto score two big scores. The small boundaries and beautiful batting conditions have played out very nicely for him, seeing him follow up his century with 94 in 44 balls in the previous match.
We are also brining in lower middle-order bat, Hayden Walsh from the side given his role as a death overs hitter and him getting four over with the ball as well. He ended up picking two wickets the last time around and could emerge as a real difference maker in this match.
An entire trivalent enters our side from Brampton Wolves with us beginning with opener George Munsey who went onto score a 36 ball 66 in the previous match, one laden with 5 sixes and 6 fours. Captain of the side, Colin Munro comes into our side as well after managing to shake off his horrid run at the WC and getting strong scores in the last couple of encounters.
Babar Hayat also comes into our side after having scored 48 yesterday, a score which saw his side breach the symbolic milestone of 200.
With us facing a serious dearth of options here given that players have departed for international series, we are going to get in Daniel Sams from Vancouver Knights. He occupies a high spot in the batting order and should take up duties with the new ball and in the death overs, making him someone capable of getting good points for us.
With Brampton so good in the batting order, it was only fair for us to get in two of their bowlers here. Wahab Riaz was plundered yesterday but he managed to pick up a wicket, something his role as a death overs bowler sees him get. Spinner Ish Sodhi comes in from the side as well with spin always something in indulge in on this surface where the ball grips and kids onto the batsmen when bowled at a faster trajectory.
From Vancouver Knights we are getting in Saad Bin Zafar to complete our side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Munsey has been picked up as our side’s captain while Gayle is the vice-captain.
