Canada lock horns with Jersey to kick-off the run of fixtures scheduled to take place on Sunday. This will be Canada’s first game in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifiers and they also become the final team to take the field in this qualifying campaign. Jersey, their opponents, enter this match on the back of a dominant victory over Nigeria. They would look to make it two wins in two whilst Canada aren’t expected to be pushovers by any means.
ICC T20 World Cup Qualifiers
Canada vs Jersey
20th October 2019
11:30 AM IST
Sheikh Zayed Stadium Nursery 1, Abu Dhabi
Bright Sunny conditions are anticipated with no chances of rain and temperature ranging around 30 degrees Celsius expected during the game.
One can expect a fresh surface for this game and the track should be conducive to batting but will start slowing down as the match progresses. Thus, batting first would be the preferred decision on winning the toss.
No notable injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
Rodrigo Thomas is a pivotal figure in the batting unit whilst Ravinderpal Singh remains their most accomplished batter. Also, Hamza Tariq is a reliable custodian behind the stumps and will be relied upon to chip in with vital runs lower down the order.
Abraash Khan/Nicholas Kirton, Rodrigo Thomas, Navneet Dhaliwal (C), Rizwaan Cheema, Ravinderpal Singh, Nitish Kumar, Hamza Tariq (WK), Junaid Siddiqui, Nikhil Dutta, Dillon Heyliger, Jeremy Gordon
Nick Ferraby is an aggressive batsman at the top and the onus will lie on him to provide a quick-fire start to the inning. In the middle order, the likes of Jonty Jenner and Ben Stevens can offer stability and one of them will have to anchor the inning for their side. Elliot Miles will handle the bowling responsibilities.
Nick Ferraby, Harrison Carlyon, Ben Stevens, Jonty Jenner, Nick Greenwood, Benjamin Ward, Dominic Blampied, Anthony Hawkins-Kay, Jake Dunford (WK), Charles Perchard (C), Elliot Miles
Jonty Jenner scored an unbeaten half-century in the last game and can be banked upon to get a few more runs under his belt. Nick Greenwood also needs to be picked as he looked in ominous touch in his 28-ball 43. For Canada, Ravinderpal Singh, skipper Navneet Dhaliwal, and Jeremy Gordan would be excellent picks for your Dream11 Team.
1: Nick Greenwood
