Tuesday night will see Montreal Tigers take on Cricket Windies-B team what is expected to be a high-voltage encounter at the Maple Leaf North-West Ground.
Montreal Tigers is coming into this encounter on the back of a heart-wrenching one-wicket loss at the hands of Toronto Nationals. Batting first, Montreal Tigers, thanks to the duo of Henriques (50) and George Worker (62), posted a competitive 4-176 in 20 overs.
Chasing 177, Toronto Nationals were 8-149 after 18 overs thanks to three-wicket-haul from Malinga (3-11) and Peter Siddle (3-45) but the 19th over from Sunil Narine proved to be a gamechanger as Pollard and Sami stroked a six respectively to bring the equation down to 13 of last 6. Pollard stroked a six and a four of the first two balls and miscued the third hit to keep MON in with a chance. But, any hopes of Montreal after Pollard’s wicket were quashed when Kesrick Williams hit a last-ball boundary to leave the Tigers to succumb to their fourth loss in 5 games.
Venue:- Maple Leaf North-West Ground, King City
Match Timing:- Tuesday, July 10, 2018, 08:30 PM IST
Their opponents in Cricket Windies-B team are also coming off a rare defeat at the hands of Vancouver Knights. Skipper Chris Gayle finally got going in the tournament having scored a brisk 55-ball-63 and was ably supported by steady contributions down the order to post 4-175 in 20 overs. None of the batsmen except for Kavem Hodge (43) could offer much support against a rampaging Sheldon Cottrell (4-19) to plummet to 140 in 19.3 overs.
The pitch at Maple Leaf North-west Ground offers a good playing field for bowlers as well as the batsman. With the tournament in its second week, the track has started to take a considerable amount of wear and turn and might assist slow bowlers in the second half.
