Match Summary

Winnipeg Hawks 116-All Out

Brampton Wolves 122-3

Brampton Wolves won by 7 wickets




Winnipeg Hawks suffered a big jolt when opener Chris Lynn was dismissed in the very first over. Lynn had been the main player for the Hawks and had contributed handsomely in their victories in both the last matches.

There was then a small partnership between Shaiman Anwar and Sunny Sohal but after Sohal was dismissed, the Brampton Wolves' spinners got the better of the Hawks' middle order and did not allow them to score. It was finally due to the 27 runs from Kaleem Sana that Winnipeg Hawks reached 116.



Rohan Mustafa, Ish Sodhi, Shahid Afridi and Zahoor Khan picked up two wickets each for the side, breaking the back of the Winnipeg Hawks' batting order. Notably, apart from Zahoor Khan, all of these bowlers are spinners and made the most of a pitch that had a bit in it for the tweakers.

Chasing a small 117-run total, Lendl Simmons (22), Colin Munro (53) and Babar Hayat (37) were the main contributors for Brampton Wolves.

No bowler, apart from Mohammad Irfan, could create any sort of trouble for the Wolves' batsmen as they raced to a win with more than five overs remaining.

Winnipeg Hawks- Chris Lynn, Shaiman Anwar, Sunny Sohal, Jean-Paul Duminy, Dwayne Bravo, Hamza Tariq, Rayad Emrit, Varun Sehdev, Umair Ghani, Kaleem Sana, Mohammad Irfan

Brampton Wolves- Lendl Simmons, George Munsey, Colin Munro, Nitish Kumar, Shahid Afridi, Babar Hayat, Rohan Mustafa, Wahab Riaz, Zahoor Khan, Cecil Pervez, Ish Sodhi
