Looks like the Global T20 Canada League, which started as an experiment last year, has passed its maiden hurdle with flying colours as it gets a second season.

Some of the biggest names in world cricket Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Yuvraj Singh, Kane Williamson, Shakib Al Hasan and many others will be seen in action in the tournament that will last from July 15 to August 11.

Six franchises, namely Winnipeg Hawks, Vancouver Knights, Toronto Nationals, Montreal Tigers, Edmonton Royals and Brampton Wolves will be a part of this 18-day tournament. West Indies B Team, which was part of the tournament last year, will not feature this time around. Instead, a new franchise Brampton Wolves will take its place.

All the matches will be played at the same venue in Brampton in Ontario. The pitch at this ground came under a lot of criticism last year. It was only obvious that with so many matches being played on the strip, it will deteriorate quickly. To solve this problem, drop-in pitches have been prepared this year, which will have a bit in it for the faster bowlers due to the moisture in the initial part of the tournament. They will be perfect for batting in the middle phase and then begin to assist the spinners as the tournament moves forward.

All the six teams will face each other once in a Round Robin format in round one. In the second round, the top-ranked team will face the bottom-placed team, the second team will face the last second and third will clash against the fourth. At this stage, two teams will be eliminated and the remaining four will move forward to the playoffs. The playoffs will comprise two qualifiers and an eliminator. The final will be played on August 11.
