Pitch Report

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.

Dream11 Prediction

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.
