Match 16: CWI B Team vs Montreal Tigers

While the CWI B team is going great guns with four wins in five games, the Montreal Tigers have struggled quite a bit with just one win in five matches.

Justin Greaves, Kavem Hodge, Fabian Allen and Brandon King are the Windies B batsmen who are in form while Khary Pierre, Sherfane Rutherford, Derval Green and Obed McCoy are their main bowlers.

The Montreal Tigers suffered a very close defeat in the last game and for standing a chance of qualifying to the playoffs, they will have to win all their games from here on.

Lasith Malinga, Peter Siddle and Sandeep Lamichhane bowled well in the last game and are expected to continue the good work. In the batting department, Dwayne Smith, Moses Henriques and George Worker will have the onus of taking the team to a good total.

Match 17: Vancouver Knights vs Toronto Nationals

 

The match between Vancouver Knights and Toronto Nationals would be second game of round two and is expected to be another cracker-jacker of a match. While Knights have won 3 games out of 5, Toronto have won only two.

This match would be instrumental in deciding whether or not the two teams will qualify for the playoffs. The Vancouver Nights have a few explosive batsmen in Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Andre Russell. Earlier, their bowling was a little below par but with the resurgence of Sheldon Cottrell, things seem to be improving. Andre Russell is another bowler who is certainly a force to reckon with.

For Toronto nationals, Steven Smith, Kieron Pollard, Nitish Kumar and Darren Sammy are the prime batsmen while Mohammed Sami and Kesrick Williams are the main bowlers.
