Brampton Wolves will face Winnipeg Hawks in the 2nd Qualifier and the winning side will face the Vancouver Knights in the final. The Brampton Wolves were the table-toppers as they began the tournament with four straight wins. However, they lost in the Round 2 game and to the Vancouver team in the 1st qualifier. Colin Munro scored the fastest fifty in Global T20 off 15 deliveries while chasing 181 from 16 overs on Thursday.
No player other than Munro got to double digits as the Wolves were bundled out for only 103. In the Eliminator, the Winnipeg Hawks edged past Toronto Nationals who posted 238/5 with help of a century from Heinrich Klaasen. Hawks lost their top three inside four overs but JP Duminy took the charge with an unbeaten 41-ball 85. They were two runs ahead of DLS par score of 199 after 17.1 overs when the bad light ended the game.
The Qualifier 2 of the Global T20 Canada 2019 will be played between Brampton Wolves and Winnipeg Hawks at the CAA Centre in Brampton, Ontario.
The match starts at 2:00 PM local time (6:00 PM GMT) (11:30 PM IST).
This game will be live on Star Sports and live streaming is available on Hotstar.
Brampton is expected to be dry on Saturday and a full 20-over game can be expected. The rain chances read 0% between 12 PM and 7 PM local time with clear skies.
The ground staff seems to have preserved the best for the playoffs as big totals were recorded during the Qualifier 1 and Eliminator games. The team batting first can’t settle down with any total. Toronto Nationals finished with 238 in the Eliminator but missed at least 10-15 easy runs in the end. Their batting in the death overs turned out to be the game-changing moment.
Probable Playing XIs:
Lendl Simmons (WK), George Munsey, Colin Munro (C), Shahid Afridi, Babar Hayat, Nitish Kumar, Wahab Riaz, Abraash Khan, Ish Sodhi, Cecil Pervez, Junaid Siddiqui.

(Will be added when there is an update)
Colin Munro and JP Duminy showed the right intent to bat in the conditions which were extremely good for batsmen. Their intent could add 10-15 runs more than planned which the Toronto Nationals missed in the Eliminator.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Captain – JP Duminy, Chris Lynn, Colin Munro
Vice-Captain – Lendl Simmons, George Munsey, Shaiman Anwar
The players who are expected to bat in the top three will be preferable for the multiplier roles. More than 700 runs were scored across 67 overs of play possible on Thursday. The top-order batsmen did most of the damage and they will be crucial once again.
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for Fantasy Cricket:
Keeper – Lendl Simmons
Batsmen – George Munsey, Colin Munro (VC), Sunny Sohail, Shaiman Anwar
All-Rounders – JP Duminy (C), Kaleem Sana, Shahid Afridi
Bowlers – Wahab Riaz, Ish Sodhi, Rayad Emrit
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for Fantasy Cricket:
Keeper – Hamza Tariq
Batsmen – Chris Lynn (C), George Munsey (VC), Colin Munro, Babar Hayat, Shaiman Anwar
All-Rounders – JP Duminy, Kaleem Sana
Bowlers – Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Irfan, Ish Sodhi
Chris Lynn and Lendl Simmons are the costliest players in this game. However, both of them have earned fewer points after starting the tournament with a bang. It will be the best idea to pick only one of the two as there are a lot of players with 9.5 credits in this game.
Brampton Wolves might get a tough fight from Winnipeg Hawks on their way through to the final.
