It is expected to be a mouth-watering encounter at the Global Canada T20 2018, with the superstar Aussie duo of David Warner and Steve Smith pitted in the same match albeit as opponents. This will be the first time that Smith and Warner will be pitted against each other since the Cape Town ball-tampering scandal.
Smith (66) played a vital part in his team’s quest of 227, set by Vancouver Knights in the first game, a match they eventually won by six wickets thanks to Devcich’s 92. But, Toronto Nationals proceeded to lose their second game thanks to an all-round performance by Edmonton Royals, who chased down the target (170) in a mere 15 overs But things weren’t as hunky-dory for David Warner. While his team won the game comfortably by 46 runs, the southpaw went for a second-ball duck courtsey Lasith Malinga. While TN will look to put the humbling of their previous game behind them, Winnipeg Hawks will look to build on the winning momentum.
