Ontario, August 02 at 10:00 PM IST
The eleventh match of Global T20 Canada 2019 will be played between Vancouver Knight and Edmonton Royals at CAA Centre, Brampton, Ontario tonight.
Placed at the bottom, Royals are yet to open their account as Faf du Plessis led side has faced three defeats in as many games played so far. Their last defeat came against Montreal Tigers by 4 wickets in which Dillon Heyliger and Scott Kuggeleijn smashed 18 runs off James Neesham's final over to lead Tigers to their second win. Later, Heyliger was adjudged as the man of the match for his 3-14 in 4 overs and 10 off just two deliveries.
Vancouver Knights, on the other hand, are sitting fourth in the ladder with one win, one loss and a no-result in three games. Their last encounter against Montreal Tigers ended in a no-result after rain interrupted the play in the innings break.
With both the teams eyeing a win, a cracker of a game is expected to take place tonight.
