The opening game of the 2019 Super50 Cup was played by Leeward Islands and they began with a bang, registering a record 198-run victory over Combined Campuses. That win will give them a lot of confidence coming into this game where they now play Canada, one of two international sides in this competition. Canada obviously begins as favourites with all of their players having international exposure.
This will be Canada’s first game in this tournament and they come fresh off the 2019 T20 World Cup Qualifier in UAE, where they had a good season but narrowly missed out on qualification to the massive ICC event in Australia next year. Keep reading for our complete Fantain (Use Code “READ123”) fantasy preview for the LEI vs CAN game…

Form (recent first)
- LEI: W
- CAN: –
- Head to head in last 4 games, Leeward leads 3-0.
- Nitish Kumar – 3 consecutive fifties at recent T20 Qualifier.
- Rahkeem Cornwall – best of 75 in recent CPL 2019.
Opener Montcin Hodge had a quiet outing in the first game, being dismissed for 16 but this player has a lot of talent and he recently scored a fifty in 3 games against India A as well. However, the first pick for me has to be Rahkeem Cornwall. The big man batted low down the order and scored 18 but he was the match-winner with the ball, picking 4 wickets. He has CPL as well as national side experience too.
With the ball, Sheeno Berridge comes into this tournament with an amazing first class record of 49 wickets in just 15 games. It looks like he’s a real wicket-taker as he bagged 3/20 in the opening game too. Opener Kieran Powell managed 30(41) in the first game but with 3 centuries in 40 Tests as well as 46 ODIs for the national side, he is their most experienced player. Their captain – Jahmar Hamilton.
Canada is playing a junior side that will be led by Kanwarpal Tathgur and I’m picking him in my Fantain (Use Code “READ123”) fantasy team because there isn’t much details on the Canada squad and he’s at least sure to play. National team regular Nitish Kumar had a brilliant tournament in Dubai with 3 fifties in 6 games including a series best of 83, while he bowled there as well. He can be your captain or vice-captain today.
Harsh Thaker, Yax Patel, Rayyan Pathan are three players who were recently selected to play in the Global T20 League in Canada and they come with a lot of expertise. Rayyan Pathan picked up 2/24 in his last game at the GT20 and also 3/76 in his last FC game for Canada. Yax Patel is also a young and exciting spinner who can be handy in these conditions.
