Toronto Nationals' quest for later stages will face a stern test against Montreal Tigers, giving Yuvraj Singh and management to put their thinking caps on and contemplate on the tactics a little more. The two teams have had a similar stint in the tournament thus far, winning two games each. A win here will help the teams to reach the knockout stages.
Toronto Nationals has been able to dominate with the bat but failed considerably with the ball in hand, something they will be wary of. Montreal Tigers, on the other hand, have struggled for a good Net Run Rate (NRR), which eventually has affected their chances for playoffs. Going forward, the scenario seems to be quite simple. As of now, the team is comfortably sitting at the fourth spot and a win against the Nationals will help seal the all-important spot.
The pitch is expected to change drastically, having been under covers for close to 48 hours. The pitch may well have some dampness, which may help teams play an extra bowler.
The weather is expected to improve and we may well have a full game of cricket.
