WH vs BRW Dream11 : Brampton Wolves look to recover from their harrowing qualifier 1 defeat while Winnipeg Hawks look to build on the momentum garnered from their incredible eliminator win
The Global T20 Canada league is set to wrap up its second edition and as we get closer to the summit clash, the competitiveness and feisty nature of the league has only gone onto to be elevated. And qualifier 2 promises to be no different when Brampton Wolves and Winnipeg Hawks clash heads against each other with a spot in the coveted final awaiting the winner of today’s encounter.
What had begun as a pinch perfect league for Brampton Wolves with the side winning four successive encounters to top the league standings has started unravelling at the wrong time for the side. After facing no defeat earlier, they have now encountered two defeats on the bounce, slumping on both the occasions to Vancouver Knights to find themselves competing for the second time for a shot at reaching the final.
What will especially perturb the side is the way their batting order has been left in disarray in the previous couple of encounters, managing to muster just 103 and 138, two showings which have left the outfit besmirched. It’s a been a sordid affair for a side who are now receiving what they were handing out to their competitors at will, seeing them come into qualifier 2 after suffering a dismal 77 run defeat.
Elsewhere, Winnipeg Hawks saw an incredible turn of events see them emerge as winners from their eliminator against Toronto Nationals. Asked to chase a massive score of 238-5, the side managed to script around an incredible turnaround to win by 2 runs through the DLs method. Despite losing their top 3 inside the powerplay overs, the side went onto score 201 in 17 overs before bad light ended play, seeing the side head into today’s clash.

Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for WH vs BRW Dream11
Lendl Simmons from Brampton Wolves is our pick for this one. Not only is it done to the opening slot he occupies for his side but also the runs he’s scored which paired with his role with the gloves make him a good option.
Batsmen for WH vs BRW Dream11
Continuing with the picks from Brampton Wolves, we have their second opener George Munsey come in as well for us. He’s one of their most instrumental players, someone who has acted as the fulcrum of his side’s batting order with the middle-order not impressing massively across their time out in the league.
Captain of the side, Colin Munro comes in as well with the New Zealand opener scoring a half-century the last time these two sides met to help not only hold the fort for his side but storm Winnipeg Hawks castle as well. Brampton Wolves have endured a sordid outing with the bat recently but their top 3 is the best part of a batting order which will brings its best game to the side’s most crucial fixture today. We are also picking out Nitish Kumar, majorly due to the 8 credit price tag and number 4 batting spot he’ll come out in.
Elsewhere we have gone in with two players from Winnipeg Hawks as well with us getting in opener Chris Lynn and Sunny Sohal. At a time when the top 3 departed for 49 in the side’s previous match, Sunny and Duminy put on a 91 run stand for the third wicket, one which was followed on by the lower middle-order to overturn things for the side from a position of peril.
All-Rounders for WH vs BRW Dream11
His 85 in 41 balls in the previous match see JP Duminy come in from Winnipeg Hawks. He is unlikely to get too many overs with the ball but holds a batting spot which will see him get plenty of overs in the middle, seeing us pick him up.
Bowling Order for WH vs BRW Dream11
With Brampton Wolves showing their glaring weaknesses in the bowling order and Winnipeg Hawks known for the instability in their top-order, we have decided to indulge in four bowlers from the side. Mohammed Irfan and Rayad Emrit come in from Winnipeg Hawks with Emrit scoring 32 runs in the previous encounter, invaluable runs which came in 15 balls to see the side just edge past the required DLS mark at the 17 over stage.
Elsewhere from Brampton Wolves we are getting in their spinner Ish Sodhi and Cecil Perez.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Colin Munro has been picked out as our side’s captain while Chris Lynn is the vice-captain.
