GT20 Eliminator: Edmonton Royals Vs Winnipeg Hawks

Toss: Winnipeg Hawks have won the toss and have opted to field

What may the fans expect in this match?

David Warner is back in business!

Warner came back to form yesterday against this very bowling attack and it has given a whole new dimension to the chances of the Hawks in this tournament. He is a big-match player, beyond any doubt and the hopes of the Hawks will clearly rest on him.

The Hawks batsmen are clicking together at the right time

Lendl Simmons has been the top scorer in this tournament so far and we hope he recovers in time from the nasty blow received in yesterday’s match. ‘Killer’ Miller, McDermott and Deyal also had decent knocks in recent matches and they will be more than eager to make their marks in this crucial encounter.

But the Royals have the bowlers to stop them

The collective failure of their batsmen made it tough for the Royals bowlers to defend a small total yesterday but the experienced trio of Irfan, Tanveer and Parnell certainly have it in them to stop the rampaging batsmen of the Hawks. But bowlers like Afridi and Agha Salman need to support them with good spells in the middle overs.

The Cricnwin prediction

In all probability, this will be a clash between the Royals bowlers and the Hawks batsmen and we have a feeling that the batting strength of the Hawks will see them through to the final.

What do you think guys?
