Montreal Tigers and Vancouver Knights will dish it out it against each other in the Canada T20 League which would be the 8th match in the second season of the league. Both Montreal Tigers and Vancouver Knights started the tournament with promising wins in their respective initial game. Though, those victories were followed by big losses over the weekend. Montreal was bowled out for only 101 on Saturday against Brampton Wolves and Ish Sodhi became the first bowler to claim a 5-wicket haul as he posted figures of 5/8 for Brampton as they hunted their requisite target successfully. Vancouver Knights couldn’t endure the insistent intention from Winnipeg Hawks. The Knights set a target of 209 to the Hawks. With an aggressive batting performance by JP Duminy (77 off 38) and Dwayne Bravo (36* off 17), the pair finished the chase in only 15.2 over’s.
