Vancouver Knights vs Cricket Windies B Team, 14th Match Preview

In the 14th encounter of Global Canada T20, Vancouver Knights will take on Cricket Windies B team on Sunday night.

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.

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.
