One side was unbeaten till their last game against the Vancouver Knights whilst the other enjoyed perhaps the worst one can ask for. The Brampton Wolves won their first four games comfortably before going down to the Knights. Yet, they have a more than healthy run-rate to stay on top of the table until the end of the group stages.

The Royals are out of contention and are currently at the bottom of the table. They have literally nothing to play for and will be desperate to finish on a respectable note. With the tournament entering the business end, momentum will always be a key and the only side that will be worried about this factor are the Wolves.


Match details

The 16th match of the Global T20 Canada 2019 will be played between Brampton Wolves and Edmonton Royals at the CAA Centre in Brampton, Ontario.

The match starts at 12:30 PM local time (4:30 PM GMT) (10:00 PM IST- Aug 3).

This game will be live on Star Sports and live streaming is available on Hotstar.

Pitch Report

A lot of matches have been played on this track and it is beginning to show the slower side of it. It will be difficult to score freely for the batsmen and anything above 150 batting first could be a decent total.
