Teams:

Montreal Tigers (Playing XI): Sunil Narine, Dwayne Smith, Moises Henriques, George Worker, Sikandar Raza, Denesh Ramdin(w), Kevon Cooper, Rayyan Pathan, Ashley Nurse, Peter Siddle, Lasith Malinga(c)

Winnipeg Hawks (Playing XI): David Warner, Lendl Simmons, David Miller, Darren Bravo, Ben McDermott(w), Rizwan Cheema, Dwayne Bravo(c), Tion Webster, Rayad Emrit, Mark Deyal, Ali Khan

Toss- 4 out of the 7 T20 internationals (excluding one tied game between Canada and Zimbabwe) played at the Maple Leaf North-West Ground have been won by the side bowling first. Also since determining a safe score here can be difficult, the team that wins the toss in this match will probably prefer chasing.

GT20 Preview: Match 2-Montreal Tigers Vs Winnipeg Hawks

After the mouth-watering run feast on the season opener, all the focus is now on the second match tomorrow (1.30 AM IST) where the Montreal Tigers will be up against the Winnipeg Hawks.

What can the fans expect from the match?

Bit of mystery from the Montreal Tigers

The Montreal Tigers will have a mystery component in their bowling as they have both Sunil Narine and Sandeep Lamichane in their ranks. Remember how well Lamichane fared in last few matches of IPL 2018 for the Delhi Daredevils?  He would definitely want to better those exploits and the whole of Nepal (we Indians too!) will be behind him. And what else can we say about Narine? He won both the Most Valuable Player and the Super Striker of the Season in IPL 2018 and he will pose a double-edged threat for the opposition with both the ball and the bat in hand.  

Opening Salvo from the Winnipeg Hawks

It will be a contest we missed in IPL 2018- Warner Vs Narine. After the welcome return to the field by Steve Smith in the season opener, it's time for Warner now to stamp his authority over the bowlers.

The Champion DJ

The chant of ‘Dee Jaay….Bravo !' will be up in the stands once again as the "Champion" will be leading the Winnipeg Hawks with all his charisma and skills.  How about some new dance moves from him?

The Cricnwin prediction

It will be a contest between the MT bowlers and WH batters and we predict a win for Warner and company.

What are your predictions guys?
