When and where:
Vancouver Knights will take on West Indies B in a game played in the Canada T20 League tomorrow (July 12) at Maple Leaf North-West Ground, King City.
The top two teams face off in this important clash for supremacy in the league. Vancouver Knights won the first game the two teams played last time and will be eyeing a similar result for the second game.
Captain Chris Gayle came into his own in that game and anchored the innings to take Knights past a defendable total. The bowling efforts were even better from the side as Sheldon Cottrell bagged four wickets to make his team win the game by 35 runs.
Meanwhile, West Indies B who have been the second best side in the tournament have to up the ante if they want to finish on top of the table. They have lost their last two games in a row, and if this form continues, they could see themselves go tumbling down the order.
The match will begin at 08:30 PM IST.
