WH vs BRW Dream11 : Brampton Wolves and Winnipeg Hawks challenge for second spot today as both the sides look to record their third win of the league
Having won both of their encounters till now, it’s not just been the two wins which have impressed from Brampton Wolves but the manner in which they have come about. The side have been extremely clinical, outshining their opposition in both departments of the game to find themselves occupying a place in the annuls of the league standings.
Beginning with a 10 wicket win, one which epitomised the perusal of worldclass bowlers they have in their kitty, Brampton Wolves went onto showcase their batting might in their second encounter. Going onto score a massive 207 to win by 27 runs as they stalled the Royals for 27, the side have come across as one of the finely poised sides in the league, one who’ll be looking to make it three successive wins today.
However, the side will be up against their toughest challenge till now with the unit squaring against a Winnipeg Hawks side who have been at level with them. The side have chased down 210 and 208, seeing their only defeat come in a run curtailed encounter when they failed to traverse past a 136 run target in 11overs.
With both of today’s units such exuberant batting units, expect a massive score to be put on the scoreboard in this encounter. It’s bound to be a topsy-turvy encounter, one which changes hands several times before finally swinging one way.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
There isn’t much different to report on this front with the surface today also going to be as good as any when it comes to coming out and doling your strokeplay. Pristine batting conditions paired with a tiny ground mean the runs are going to pour down in this match with the side winning the toss definitely looking to bowl first here.

Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for WH vs BRW Dream11
With 37 in the first match, followed up by an ever better half-century in the next match, Brampton Wolves’ opener, Lendl Simmons is our undisputed pick for this segment. He’s provided just the platform the side have needed in both their matches, a flawless player who finds hitting the ball purely so easy.
Batsmen for WH vs BRW Dream11
And someone who has allowed Simmons to take charge of his innings and craft it the way he would like has been his compatriot, George Munsey. He smashed a match winning 63 in the first match, an innings of brilliance where everything he touched went straight to the boundary.
From Winnipeg Hawks, our first pick is of opener Chris Lynn. He’s scored 79 and 84 in his last two encounters, helping the side chase down exuberant 200 plus targets. His 27 ball 58 run innings in the last match as Winnipeg Hawks went onto chase down the Nationals’ 216 runs sees Sunny Sohal come in our side as well.
All-Rounders for WH vs BRW Dream11
With 77 in the second match, JP Duminy is our pick from Winnipeg Hawks for this one. Despite his failing in the first and third match, this league is one where you just can’t leave out batsmen who have built a reputation for themselves to come out and cue the ball nicely and Duminy could get runs in this match today.
Dwayne Brava is picked up from the side as well after picking up 4-39 the last time around. Elsewhere from Brampton Wolves we have opted for Rohan Mustafa who has become a key pick for the side in the absence of Shakib Al Hasan.
With Brampton Wolves’ rampant success been born out of their exquisite bowling efforts, we were always going to rope in a pick of bowling options from the side. The team has made for one of the mot flawless bowling units till now and up against a side who are known to pile on big scorers, the bowlers will need to take control once again.
Pacers Wahab Riaz and Zahoor Khan both come in for us while in the spin department we have gone ahead with Ish Sodhi. Given the Bravo, Lynn and Munro are in the opposition’s batting line-up, spin could prove to be extremely successful and snare up a bagful of wickets for the side.
The one selection comes in from Winnipeg Hawks as well with is selecting Rayad Emrit for this one.
Captain And Vice-Captain
