TON vs MOT Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Jul 30, 2023

In one of the Global T20 Canada 2023 competition games Toronto Nationals will take on Montreal Tigers later today. This game will be played at the CAA Center in Brampton, Canada. Let's look at the match prediction, betting tips, and weather report for this game. Toronto Nationals is the 4th placed side in the Global T20 Canada points table while Montreal Tigers is currently ranked number 2 in the points tally. This game will be the second match of the consecutive head-to-head contests between the two sides.

After completing a hat-trick of wins, Montreal Tigers was promptly humbled by Brampton Wolves in their last encounter before the first game against Montreal. Despite having some of the biggest names in T20 cricket in their batting order, the Montreal team failed to chase a moderate total of 144 runs. On the other hand, Toronto National managed to avoid a hat-trick of losses when their bowlers successfully outplayed Mississauga Panthers by restricting them to a score of 115 runs for the loss of 9 wickets. Colin Munro continued his batting form with the Toronto Nationals securing a 2nd win of the 2023 season by chasing the target with 6 wickets in hand.

You will still find some weaknesses in the Toronto batting order with only Colin Munro in great touch. Others failed to impress. Their batting order appears to be in shambles and if they were asked to chase a larger total something in the region of 170 Toronto Nationals will find themselves on the back foot.

TON vs MOT Team Previews

Toronto Nationals

The victory in the last match must have come as a big relief for the Toronto Nationals. The Toronto captain Hamza Tariq decided to bat in the number 3 position and also promoted Nicholas Kriton to open their innings in his place. Another batter that contributed was Tariq who scored 25 runs from 21 balls as the Nationals team managed to chase down a score of 116 runs. Although the Nationals succeeded in scoring the requisite total, their batting was far from impressive. But still, the Nationals captain would have gathered some confidence from the win.

Another significant batter near the top of the border for Toronto has been Nicholas Kirton however, he lacks consistency. But he will have a crucial role to play in this game together with the in-form batsman Colin Munro with the Toronto Nationals looking to capitalize on the team momentum to try and reach the number 2 position in the points table. But the real problem for the Toronto Nationals begins from number 4 onwards in their batting order. Amaan Kapoor, JJ Smit, and Gerard Eramus will need to make important contributions in their middle and lower middle order.

Having said that, the real problem for the Toronto Nationals begins at number four onwards in the line-up. Amaan Kapoor, JJ Smith, and Gerard Eramus have not made significant contributions to the team in the middle and lower middle order. After the top 4 are back into the pavilion it is difficult for the Toronto Nationals to bounce back and finish their innings on a high note. But the key to another victory lies in their bowling attack. The key bowlers Fazalhaq Farooki, Saad Bin Zafar, and Farhan Malik have been consistent with their bowling and they are significant players to watch.

Darren Bravo, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Zaman Khan, Sikandar Raza, Faheem Ashraf, Hamza Tariq, Gerhard Erasmus, Jonathan Smit, Armaan Kapoor, Nicholas Kirton, Saad Bin Zafar.

Montreal Tigers

The Montreal Tigers' captain Chris Lynn will be hoping against hope for a fast runaround after the team had to face a loss against Brampton Wolves. The skipper himself is struggling to score quick runs after a fifty against Mississauga Panthers which was a successful chase. The captain will be looking to get back among runs and he will also be expecting some other important team members such as Sherfane Rutherford, and Shakib Al Hasan to develop bigger partnerships in the middle.

There are some good bowlers in Montreal ranks that have made significant contributions to their team. They managed to bowl the Panthers out for a score of 143 runs while they bowled first in their last match. Aayan Khan and Carlos Brathwaite have succeeded in bagging 4 wickets apiece. Some other bowlers have also contributed to their team cause such as Shakib Al Hasan, Kaleem Sana, and Dipendra Singh. But Carlos Brathwaite has been the only bowler that has been consistent.

As far as the batting line-up is concerned it is not just Chris Lynn who is having problems in scoring runs near the top of the order. Muhammad Waseem has not even managed to reach double figures from his last three outings. The key to a good performance in the middle order lies with Shakib Al Hasan. He is likely to come into bat in the number 3 slot and will be the most critical batter for the Tigers. Then there is Dilpreet Singh who will come in at number 4. He has made some decent starts but has not been able to convert them into significant contributions. Carlos Brathwaite who bats lower down the order is the real finisher.

Pitch and Conditions

This is the 17th game of GT20 Canada and it will be played at CAA Center in Brampton. These two teams will once again meet at this venue in the upcoming days. Even though the average first innings total on this ground is more than 160 runs, we have observed that the teams batting first finishes on smaller totals. If a team is forced to chase a target over 170 runs, they may struggle and this target might prove to be a huge task for both teams and any score in the same region will be a match-winning total.

The pitch at this venue is a bit on the slower side. This was observed in the recent games played at this venue. The batsmen were struggling to score huge runs and the bowlers enjoyed their stints in the middle. We are expecting some thunderstorms during the game and the temperatures will be close to 24 degrees Celsius.

TON vs MOT Betting Tips

The Toronto Nationals team secured their 2nd victory of the season in their last game when they were asked to chase a target of 116 runs. The Nationals’ batting order is still not up to the mark. It might not survive if they are faced with a big total. The Montreal Tigers on the other hand have an in-form bowling attack and a solid batting line-up. Although the Montreal top-order batting has struggled during the recent games, they have a lot of firepower in their line-up and can bounce back easily. This match is likely to be a close game taking into consideration their current bowling form. All-in-all Montreal Tigers will have an edge in this contest and will be firm favorites. We will bet with Montreal Tigers to win the contest.
