Montreal Tigers and Edmonton Royals clash in the 9th match of the Global T20 Canada League. On whom are you placing your bets on, quite literally.
Montreal Tigers v Edmonton Royals
Venue - Maple Leaf North-West Ground, King City
Time - 4pm BST
Montreal Tigers are languishing at the bottom of the points table with three losses in as many matches. The Global T20 Canada League being a short tournament, the Tigers will have to win all their matches from now on to stand a chance of qualifying to the next round.
Lasith Malinga, Dwayne Smith and Moses Henriques are their international stars and they will be expected two do something extraordinary.
This will also be a tournament-defining match for Edmonton Royals who have won one and lost one out of their two matches.
The Irish all-rounder Kevin O'Brien joined the Royals in the last match and had an impact right away with a 49-run knock. Andre Fletcher, Luke Ronchi and Shahid Afridi are the front-line picks and the result of the match will depend quite a lot on their performances.
