In the ninth match of the Global Canada T20, Montreal Tigers will take on Edmonton Royals on July 05, 2018.
It’s been an insipid campaign for Montreal Tigers, having succumbed to three successive losses in as many encounters and now face a real possibility of being left behind the 8-ball. In their previous encounter, MON failed to chase down 167 with none of their batsmen except Worker (43) and Henriques (40) and succumbed to 148 all-out.
Where:- Maple Leaf North-West Ground, King City
When:- Thursday, July 05, 2018, 01:30 AM IST
They now face Edmonton Royals, who are coming off a defeat at the hands if WI-B team. ERO had a great start to the tournament, having chased 170 in a mere 15 overs against Toronto Nationals. But against WI-B their much-vaunted batting line-up failed and it was only Kevin O’Brien’s late assault (49 off 17 balls) that took to a respectable score of 155. Defending 156, all the bowlers chipped in with wickets but Hasan Khan (46-3), albeit expensive, was the most effective bowler for Afridi.

Here’s how the probable MON vs ERO playing 11 might line-up:-
Wicket-keeper: D Ramdin
Batsmen: D Smith, Najibullah Zadran
All-rounder: S Narine, G Worker S Raza, M Henriques

For Montreal Tigers, Moises Henriques (89 in three matches) has been the leading run-scorer. He, along with Worker (73) will be key to their fortunes.
On the bowling front, Lasith Malinga (7 wickets), Siddle (4 wickets), and of-course Sunil Narine (economy rate of just 6 RPO) will be the cornerstones to their success.
As far as ERO is concerned, the onus will be on Ronchi, Fletcher, Behardien, and Kevin O’Brien, while Hassan Khan, who took a 3-wicket-haul against WI-B will be key alongside skipper Tanvir, and Shahid Afridi.
