MOT vs VAK Match Preview

During this year's competition, Montreal Tigers will try to keep their dominance over other teams going in this game. The team led by Chris Lynn beat Toronto Nationals by a margin of 23 runs in a rain-shortened match to assure a place in the playoffs. Most of their key players are in good nick. This is their last match before the playoffs and a victory will certainly help in building momentum for the playoffs. Muhammad Waseem and Chris Lynn are both in good form and this pair will be looking to provide a big start to the innings.

The Montreal middle order consists of batters such as Sherfane Rutherford, Andre Russell, and Dilpreet Singh and they will look to add quick runs to the total. Dipendra Airee, Srimantha Wijeratne, and Carlos Brathwaite will add solidity to the Montreal batting order. Kaleem Sana has done a good job with the ball in the competition. He will again be looking to pick up early wickets. He will share the new balls with Carlos Brathwaite. The all-rounder Russell is also a handy bowler and will be looking to bowl well in the competition.

The Vancouver Knights team is being led by Rassie van der Dussen. This team will be under excruciating pressure during this matchup. A loss in this game will end their prospects of birth in the playoffs. Vancouver Knights lost their last match against the Tigers earlier by a huge margin. The skipper will have to lead from the front to get his team to a win. Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman will have to provide a good start to the innings. Corbin Bosch has also played well and will be looking to develop partnerships in the middle order with Rayyan Pathan and Rassie van der Dussen.

Najibullah Zadran and Harsha Thaker complete a tremendous batting order for the side. The Knight’s bowling attack has let their side down in many matches. They will need useful spells from bowlers such as Muhammad Kamal and Corbin Bosch near the top. Junaid Siddique and Ruben Trumpelmann will have to bowl useful spells in their middle overs. The Montreal Tigers have some big hitters in their ranks. Harsh Thaker has done a good job and needs to do well in the supporting role with Karthik Meiyappan.

Weather Report

It is expected that we will get overcast skies for this game in Brampton. This will make life tough for the batters. We have observed that faster bowlers have done a decent job on this track. Batters will have to play the ball on merit to perform well at the venue. Any score in the region of 170 runs will be a good total at this venue.

Pitch Report

The players will be well aware of the challenging conditions at the CAA Center awaiting them. This ground has been a stern proposition for the batsmen right throughout the competition.
