For you to put up a good score in T20s, you need a couple of batsmen to go past 30 or one batsman to go really big. However, none of the Montreal Tigers' batters could even reach 30, which is why the team could only manage 136 from the 20 overs.
As expected, opener Kyle Coetzer top-scored for them with a run-a-ball 26. After his dismissal, no one else could spend time on the wicket.
Chris Green and Salman Nazar were the leading bowlers for Toronto Nationals and picked up two wickets each.
In reply, Rodrigo Thomas and Moises Henriques of the Toronto Nationals were dismissed early, but it was the half-century from opener Chirag Suri which sealed the match.
Suri got good support from Heinrich Klaasen and Chris Green and the team coasted to a win comfortably with two and a half overs to spare.
Fawad Ahmed was the most impressive Montreal Tigers' bowler.
