VAK vs MOT Match Preview

Montreal Tigers have emerged as one of the top-performing teams in the Global T20 Canada Cricket League. With two wins out of two matches, they currently hold the second position on the points table, just behind Brampton Wolves. Their impressive all-round performances have been highlighted by the stellar contributions of Shakib Al Hasan, who excelled both with the ball and the bat in their matches against Surrey Jaguars and Mississauga Panthers. Shakib's bowling prowess, coupled with his rapid innings, proved instrumental in guiding the Tigers to victory.


In their first match against Surrey Jaguars, Shakib's exceptional spell of three wickets for 18 runs in four overs played a crucial role in restricting the opposition to 136 for six. He further displayed his batting prowess by smashing 26 runs off just 13 balls, leading the Tigers to a successful chase with nine balls to spare.


In the match against Mississauga Panthers, the Tigers' batting was led by Chris Lynn, who crafted an outstanding innings of 64 runs off 45 balls. His unbeaten knock, supported by contributions from Shakib and Sherfane Rutherford, ensured the Tigers comfortably achieved the target of 141 with 25 balls to spare.


With their batting and bowling firing on all cylinders, the Tigers have emerged as a formidable force in the league. Their deep batting lineup adds to their strength, making them a challenging team to beat.


On the other hand, Vancouver Knights had a rough start to the tournament but quickly recovered. With one win from two matches, they currently sit at the fourth position on the points table. Their skipper, Rassie van der Dussen, played a valiant knock of 51 runs in their first match, but the Knights fell short of the target set by the Nationals. However, they redeemed themselves in their second match, where their bowlers put up an impressive performance, limiting the Panthers to 158 runs. Harsh Thaker's brilliant innings of 75 runs, supported by van der Dussen, steered the Knights to a comfortable victory.


The Knights' batting and bowling units have shown immense potential, and their recent success is indicative of their capability to take on strong opponents. If they can maintain their momentum, the Montreal Tigers will have a tough challenge ahead.


As the two teams, Montreal Tigers and Vancouver Knights, face each other in their upcoming match, the contest promises to be thrilling and closely fought. Both sides have shown their strengths and are eager to secure a victory to improve their positions on the points table. With a formidable batting lineup and impressive bowling performances, the Montreal Tigers will aim to extend their winning streak and claim the top spot. On the other hand, the Vancouver Knights' resurgence after a slow start makes them a dangerous opponent, and they will be determined to continue their winning ways. Cricket enthusiasts can expect an exciting encounter that shouldn't be missed.


Weather Report

The tournament has already been impacted by the rain and the chances are we will see the weather play a part in this upcoming contest as well. Having said that, we are likely to get some overs in and consequently the wash-out looks possible but improbable at the moment. We expect captains to be wary of the weather as well and the captain winning the toss is likely to bowl first.

Pitch Report

We have seen middling totals in the tournament so far and with the surface slowing down, the trend is likely to continue in the upcoming match as well. A total of about 155 will be par and the team batting first would be pretty happy if they manage to get anything more than 10 over that.

Team News

We have not heard of any injuries or any major squad updates in any of the two sides. Expect both sides to come out with the same playing eleven as their last game, unless of course there are last minute changes.
