In the 14th encounter of Global Canada T20, Vancouver Knights will take on Cricket Windies B team on Sunday night.
Vancouver Knight’s last match was abandoned due to the wet outfield but they come into this game after having notched up two successive wins in their last two completed fixtures. They defeated Montreal Tigers by 18 runs thanks to a swashbuckling 56-ball-83 by Dussen and a three-wicket haul from Tim Southee as they successfully defended 167.
Venue:- Maple Leaf North-West Ground, King City
Match Timing:- Sunday, July 08, 2018, 08:30 PM IST
They face Cricket West Indies B team who has been imperious in the tournament thus far, having notched up three back-to-back wins. They defeated Winnipeg Hawks thanks to a riveting 89 by the eventual Player-of-the-Match Justin Greeves. WI-B would be hoping for another imperious performance against VK as the tournament reaches its business end.
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.
