Captained by the veteran Indian all-rounder, the star-studded Toronto Nationals got off a rather poor start in the current edition of Canada Global T20 League as they lost to Vancouver Knights by quite some margin. They'll have an opportunity to make amends and get back to the winning ways in their next fixture, which is against Edmonton Royals and is to be played at CAA Centre, Brampton, Ontario. These are early days in the tournament with only one match gone so far, but both the sides will be keen to get some points on the board early in the tournament. Also, it's a small tournament with each team playing the other only once so the importance of each win is even more. Considering that a couple of important points are at stake for both the sides, we expect a fierce contest here.
Although Toronto Nationals ended up scoring a pretty decent total of 159 in the allotted 20 overs while batting first, they wouldn't be too happy with their performance in the first match.
Batting first on a decent batting surface, RA Thomas got them off to a flying start, and despite the early loss of Brendon McCullum, they looked well in control in the earlier part of their innings. However, things slowed down in the middle overs as Calum MacLeod, and skipper Yuvraj Singh took as many as fifty deliveries to score a total of 31 runs, which eventually cost Toronto the match. Heinrich Klaasen and Kieron Pollard provided their innings with a bit of impetus towards the end, but their effort proved to be inconsequential as Vancouver Knights chased down the total with considerable ease.
Just like their batting, their bowling looked off-color as well. Barring Gordon and Montfort, none of their bowlers looked like picking up wickets, and even they were a little too expensive considering the required run rate for the Knights was only eight runs an over. The rest of their bowlers gave away runs at an even higher economy rate as the Knights overhauled the total with more 16 balls to spare and eight wickets in hand.
Rodrigo Thomas, Calum MacLeod, Y Singh, Kieron Pollard, Heinrich Klaasen, Ravinderpal Singh, Christopher Green, Mark Montfort, Jeremy Gordon, Salman Nazar, Manpreet Gony.
Contrary to the lineup of Toronto Nationals, Edmonton Royals is studded with current playing stars including but not limited to Kane Williamson and Faf du Plessis. It will be Williamson's first appearance in a competitive match after a heart-wrenching defeat in the World Cup final.
The Royals have a near-perfect batting unit with the likes of Anshuman Rath, Kane Williamson, Faf Du Plessis, and Davy Jacobs available at the top of the order. They all have played cricket across the globe and are capable of taking away the game in a flash.
To complement their already superb batting lineup, they have an excellent set of all-rounders in Ben Cutting and James Neesham, who both can be dangerous on their day with both bat and the ball. All in all, they are a superb team with all their bases covered, at least on paper, and it will be interesting to see how they fare at the turf on Saturday.
Mohammad Hafeez, Faf du Plessis, Ben Cutting, Shadab Khan, James Neesham, Safyaan Sharif, Anshuman Rath, Richie Berrington, Kyle Fitzroy Phill, Navneet Dhaliwal, Akash Gill.

Toronto National's skipper Yuvraj Singh showed a minor discomfort in his back in the previous match, and his participation in the upcoming fixture is still under the clouds. As seen in the last game, even though they have fierce finishers in Kieren Pollard and Heinrich Klaasen at their disposal, they are a little too over-reliant on Brendon McCullum at the top. They have plenty of experience available within their side, but Edmonton Royals who arguably have a better-balanced team are better placed to win the upcoming fixture on Saturday.
