The last few matches in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Americas Region Final 2019 have already become inconsequential after Canada and Bermuda already booked their places in the Main ICC T20 Qualifiers which is slated to be played later in the year. In the 11th match of the tournament, it will be Canada and USA who will fight it out in the dead rubber.
While Canada has played an exceptional brand of cricket in the tournament so far, USA, on the other hand, has just managed a couple of victories in the tournament, both of which has come against the Cayman Islands. In all likelihood, Canada will be the favourites for yet another time.
Match 11: Canada vs USA
Venue: White Hill Field, Sandys Parish
Date and Time: 25th August, 07:30 PM IST
Canada has played some impressive cricket in the tournament so far. However, the top order which includes the likes of Rodrigo Thomas hasn’t lived up to his expectations. Canada has already progressed to the next round. However, they will like to settle a few scores before their last encounter in the tournament.
Canada Predicted Playing 11:
Hamza Tariq, Navneet Dhaliwal, Rodrigo Thomas, Nitish Kumar, Rizwan Cheema, Ravinderpal Singh, Romesh Eranga, Nikhil Dutta, Abraash Khan, Saad Bin Zafar, Dilon Heyliger
Hamza Tariq (wk), Navneet Dhaliwal (C), Rodrigo Thomas, Nitish Kumar, Rizwan Cheema, Ravinderpal Singh, Harsh Thaker, Abraash Khan, Junaid Siddique, Nikhil Dutta, Saad Bin Zafar, Cecil Pervez, Dillon Heyliger, Romesh Eranga
USA has racked up a couple of victories against the Cayman Islands. However, against the likes of Canada and Bermuda, they haven’t managed to get a victory which has resulted in their elimination.
They won their 2nd clash against the Cayman Islands by 10 runs to keep their hopes alive in the tournament. Xavier Marshall will look to get USA off to a good start in their 3rd clash and a victory will strengthen their position in the tournament.
USA Predicted Playing 11:
Jaskaran Malhotra, Xavier Marshall, Steven Taylor, Hayden Walsh, Monank Patel, Timroy Allen, Saurabh Netravalkar, Cameron Gannon, Nisarg Patel, Timil Patel, Aaron Jones
USA full squad:
Jaskaran Malhotra (wk), Steven Taylor, Xavier Marshall, Monank Patel, Aaron Jones, Hayden Walsh, Timil Patel, Timroy Allen, Saurabh Netravalkar (c), Ali Khan, Cameron Gannon, Karima Gore, Nisarg Patel, Jasdeep Singh
CAN vs USA Dream 11 Combination
Wicketkeepers: Jaskaran Mahlotra, Hamza Tariq
Batsmen: Steven Taylor, Xavier Marshall, Rodrigo Thomas, Monanak Patel & Nitish Kumar
All-rounders: Hayden Walsh, Timil Patel, & Abraash Khan
Bowlers: Saurabh Netravalkar, Cameron Gannon, Nikhil Dutta, Nisarg Patel, & Romesh Eranaga
Steven Taylor: He has been one of the most consistent batsmen for Canada. Taylor scored a brilliant half-century against Bermuda and has also scored a half-century in earlier of the matches.
Rodrigo Thomas- You have to brave while picking a team in the Dream XI. Despite a relatively poor return in the tournament so far, Thomas might well prove to be an X factor in their final match of the tournament.
