Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
Hong Kong is not having a great time at the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019. They have lost all the three matches they played so far and the door to qualify for the next year’s tournament proper is about to close for them. They will play Jersey on Wednesday evening which again is a must-win game for them and have a quick turn around on Thursday against Canada.
All matches are must-win games for them now. Canada, on the other hand, have looked strong and have performed to the expectations. They have won two matches quite comfortably against Jersey and Nigeria and fighting it out against Ireland at the moment. Even they will be back on the field in less than 24 hours to face Hong Kong. Canada, as of now, look certain to make it to the top three from Group B and qualify for the T20 World Cup.
It has been extremely hot in the Abu Dhabi and nothing will change in terms of the heat on Thursday as well. The temperature is expected to hover in the mid-30s during the match according to AccuWeather.
It has all been about winning the toss and bat first and then comfortably defend the total at this venue. The teams batting first have managed to post above-par totals on the board and then the pitch slows down considerably to tangle the chasing side.
Average first innings score: 144 (four matches in this tournament at the venue)
Record of the chasing team: Won – 1; Lost – 3
