TON vs WIK Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Aug 08, 2019
The Toronto Nationals and the Winnipeg Hawks are going to be playing the GT20 Canada 2019 Eliminator as they try and fight their way towards the title. Playing an eliminator is exactly the same as being at a quarter-final stage of a tournament. Both the teams now need to win three matches, including this one, to be able to lift the trophy.
The Toronto Nationals were able to win their previous match against the Montreal Tigers by 35 runs while the Winnipeg Hawks saw their round 2 match being washed out due to rain.
Toronto Nationals vs Winnipeg Hawks GT20 Canada 2019 Eliminator is going to be played at the CAA Centre, Brampton, Ontario on the 8th of August 2019.
TON vs WIK Team Previews
The Toronto Nationals managed to win their last match even without the presence of Yuvraj Singh, whom we assume is going to be available for the Eliminator. Rodrigo Thomas continued to be impressive up the order and scored 70 from 56 deliveries while Heinrich Klaasen made 64 not out from just 34 balls.
It was a supreme batting effort from the Toronto Nationals and they seem to be reaching their best batting form at just the right time.
We expect Yuvraj Singh to take his position in the middle order for the Eliminator and that is going to be a huge plus for the Toronto Nationals. The former Indian international has been striking the ball well and is scoring runs at a very good clip.
With players like Moises Henriques, Chriag Suri and some good all-rounders in the side, the Toronto Nationals have a good batting lineup.
Their bowling is going to be led by Mitchell McClenaghan and Sandeep Lamichhane. Both of them are regulars on the T20 circuit and can be relied upon in difficult situations. Chris Green is another bowler that is just perfect for this format of the game.
The form going into these big matches is very important and that is where the Toronto Nationals have a big advantage over the Winnipeg Hawks.
Toronto Nationals Playing 11
Rodrigo Thomas, Chirag Suri, Y Singh, Kieron Pollard, Heinrich Klaasen, Ravinderpal Singh, Sandeep Lamichhane, Christopher Green, Jeremy Gordon, Salman Nazar, MJ Mcclenaghan.
The Winnipeg Hawks have not won a game in their last three attempts. One match got abandoned due to rain and they suffered heavy defeats in the other two. This is not a god time to be starved of victories as you approach the knockout phase of the tournament.
The Hawks were absolutely ambushed by the Edmonton Royals in their last match. Shaiman Anwar, Chris Lynn, and JP Duminy played well to help the side reach 195 only for the Edmonton Royals to chase that down with 8 wickets in hand and almost two full overs to spare.
The bowling performance by the Winnipeg Hawks was very poor. JP Duminy, Mohammad Irfan, Paul van Meekeren, Umair Ghani, and Sompal Kami were all taken to the sword.
While the form of the team is a bit troubling, the underlying quality of the players cannot be argued with. The Winnipeg Hawks have a very good batting lineup that is led by Chris Lynn and a pretty good bowling attack too.
They should not be counted out just because their recent form is not the best.
Winnipeg Hawks Playing 11
Chris Lynn, S Anwar, Jean-Paul Duminy, Umar Akmal, Sunny Sohal, RR Emrit, H Tariq, Mohammad Irfan, Varun Sehdev, Kaleem Sana, Umair Ghani.
