Match 13: Winnipeg Hawks vs Edmonton Royals

 

Winnipeg Hawks and Edmonton Royals are ranked respectively third and fourth in the points table. Although their rankings may look a quite similar, this is actually not the case. While Winnipeg Hawks have a win percentage of 50% with two wins and as many losses in four games, Edmonton Royals have only managed to win one match and are in desperate need of a victory.

David Warner has not been able to leave a mark till now and is long due for a big score. After taking over the captaincy of Vancouver Knights from Dwayne Bravo, he would have a greater sense of responsibility and that may help him to focus.

Lendl Simmons, David Miller and Ben McDermott are the other lead batsmen. The bowling will be taken care of by Tion Webster and a resurgent Fidel Edwards.

All-rounders Shahid Afridi and Kevin O'Brien are the main players for Edmonton Royals. They will have to come good in this match if Royals want to move further in the tournament.
