Toronto Nationals vs Montreal Tigers, 15th Match Preview
In the second game of Sunday’s doubleheader, Toronto Nationals will take on Montreal Tigers what is expected to be a battle for survival.
Both teams are languishing at the bottom of the table having won just a solitary game out of four. Toronto Nationals are on a three-match losing streak. The last of those chastening losses came against Cricket Windies B team. Having failed to read the surface, WI-B bowlers cashed-in and despite Steve Smith’s 55, never really allowed TOR to get away. After the bowlers did their job, WI-B batsmen in Justin Greaves (45) and Rutherford (37) set the platform to eventually chase down 129 in a canter. None of the Nationals bowlers except for Usama Mir (1-29) could pose any threat to Greaves and co and ended up losing by eight wickets.
Venue:- Maple Leaf North-West Ground, King City

Their opponents in Montreal Tigers were on a three-match losing streak before they eventually put together a complete performance to beat Edmonton Royals by 16 runs. Defending 130, Peter Siddle was the hero of the Tigers as his spell of 4-13 restricted Edmonton Royals to 113. Both the teams would be hoping for a complete performance going into TOR vs MON.
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.
