The Americas T20 Region Final T20 tournament kicked off today with a match between the hosts Bermuda and USA, with the latter being obvious favourites. Now, Match 2 takes place at the same ground between Canada and Cayman Islands, with Canada the obvious favourites in this game as they have had so many years more of exposure at the highest level.
The Canadian team is more or less settled but watch out while selecting your team for Cayman Islands as we don’t usually know the playing 11. Also, watch for how the pitch plays in Match 1 and select your team accordingly. Keep reading for our complete PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy preview of the CAN vs CAY game…

- This is the first ever T20 international between these teams.
- This will be Cayman Islands’ first ever international match.
- Canada is ranked 26th in the ICC T20I Rankings.
- Rodrigo Thomas – 291 runs in 7 games at GT20 Canada 2019.
Davy Jacobs has been Canada captain since a year but he is not a part of this series, with Navneet Dhaliwal being promoted up to captain. Jacobs was also wicket-keeper which means Hamza Tariq will take over duties behind the stumps, and both these players were at the recent Global T20 Canada 2019. Dhaliwal scored 82 and Tariq scored 37 runs in that tournament.
At the top of the order, Rodrigo Thomas recently had a fantastic outing at the GT20 2019 with 3 fifties in his 7 innings and he can really hit the ball a long, long way. Pick him for sure while all-rounder duties can go to Saad bin Zafar who picked 8 wickets in that tournament and didn’t get to bat in all except the final, where he played a handy knock of 27 runs.
There’s not much of a record on these guys but all-rounder Alessandro Morris should be your first pick as he’s set to captain the team. Morris has 48 runs and 9 wickets in his last 10 games for Cayman Islands. The team is boosted by the entry of Gregory Strydom, former Zimbabwe all-rounder who played 12 ODIs and used to play for Tuskers in the Zimbabwe domestic circuit.
Sacha de Alwis should be one of the first picks in your PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy team as he has a lowest score of 32 in his last 5 games for Cayman Islands. This includes scores of 52, 60 and 94 and remember, he is thrown the ball at times too. Another good bowling pick is Troy Taylor who has 15 wickets in his last 10 games for Cayman Islands.
