Sodhi storm blows away Montreal Tigers as Brampton Wolves register 10-wicket win in their 1st GT20 match
Montreal Tigers were trapped in the spinning web of Ish Sodhi who claimed 5-8 from his four overs to became the first bowler in Global T20 Canada history to pick up a five-wicket haul.
Montreal Tigers 101-All Out
Brampton Wolves 102-0
Brampton Wolves won by 10 wickets
After the early dismissal of opener Sunil Narine, Kyle Coetzer and Bupinder Singh had stabilized things for Montreal Tigers, but that was before spinner Ish Sodi had come into the attack.
Sodhi had landed in Toronto just a few hours ago and was short on sleep, but there was no shortage of skill as the leg spinner flummoxed the Tigers' batsmen and picked up five wickets one after the other. Sodhi was extremely economical and gave away just eight runs. He was well assisted by Rohan Mustafa and Shahid Afridi who also bowled tight line and lengths.
As a result, the Tigers were bowled out for just 101, which would clearly not be a problem for the Brampton Wolves to chase down.
Wolves' openers Lendl Simmons (37) and George Munsey (63) went all out as they chased the target in no more than 40 deliveries. Both batsmen went at a strike rate of over 230 and made short work of the task at hand.
