In their last match, Bahrain managed to beat Saudi Arabia and as a result, they will be looking to develop some momentum while going on to this game. Canada is also going into this match with a victory against the competition hosts Oman which should be a huge confidence booster for the team.

It will be interesting to see whether they can put an end to the Canadian onslaught.

CAN vs BAHRAIN Team Previews


The Canadian outfit is being led by Saad Bin Zafar. They were faced with stiff opposition in their last match against the hosts of the competition Oman. However, the Canadian cricket team managed to hold its nerve against the hosts to register a win by a wafer-thin margin of 1 run. It was a high-scoring match and the bowlers were not in good form till the final overs of the game. But the Canadian bowlers managed to hold on to their nerves and helped their side to a 3rd win in a row. Bin Zafar will look to get his side to a win even in this match to make sure that they reserve a place in the final.

Aaron Johnson is in terrific form with the bat for Canada as he succeeded in hitting a hundred in their last match. Hitting a hundred in a T20 game is a rare occurrence but Aaron Johnson was able to achieve this feat in an international game. He will be looking to set up another huge opening wicket stand against Srimantha Wijeratne. Another batter that is looking good at the moment is Ravinderpal Singh who occupies the number 3 spot. He will be keen to add some runs at the top of the order together with Harsh Thakar and Dillon Heyliger

The Canadian lower middle order will be in the hands of players such as Bin Zafar and Matthew Spoors to add more solidity to their batting line-up lower down the order. The Canadian bowling attack has gone for many runs. It has been a bit of a worry for their team management. Ammar Khalid and Bin Zafar need to bowl productive spells with the new ball. They need to keep in mind that Bahrain has some good hitters in their ranks. The rest of the bowling attack apart from these two has struggled in this series and better spells will be expected from bowlers such as Nikhil Dutta, Thaker, and Dillon Heyliger.

Canada Playing 11

Ammar Khalid, Aaron Johnson, Spoors, Pargat Singh, Heyliger, Thaker, Kaleem Sana, Dutta, Ravinderpal Singh, Saad Bin Zafar, Srimantha Wijeratne.


The Bahrain outfit is led by Sarfaraz Ali. The team has won a couple of games now and has regained some of the momentum on their side. They started the competition with a loss but they succeeded in beating Saudi Arabia by a good margin of 53 runs. But they will be facing much stiffer opposition in this encounter. In one of the earlier games, they had to face a defeat at the hands of Canada. Ali and his men will be looking to put the records straight in this match. But he and Ahmed Nazar have not been able to score many runs so far.

The Bahrain cricket side will need a decent start from their opening batters. Sohail Ahmed and Imran Anwar did play a couple of good innings in their last match and this would have made them pretty confident for the rest of the tournament. However, they will be looking for more contributions from batters such as Haider Butt and David Mathias who are responsible for manning the lower middle order. The Bahrain bowling attack will be up against a strong batting order in this game and will be looking for some great spells from their top bowlers such as Imran Khan and Rizwan Butt.

These bowlers are capable of placing the side into a comfortable position in the match. Another bowler who will be looking to bowl tight spells in the game is Sathaiya Veerapathiran together with Imran Anwar. The Bahrain team will also be hoping for good spells from their support cast such as Danish Jasnaik and Sachin Kumar. In their last game against Saudi Arabia, the Bahrain bowling attack was right on the money with almost all the bowlers chipping in with wickets. The most successful bowler for Bahrain was Rizwan Butt who picked up 2 wickets for 13 runs in this game.
