After the success of the 1st season, the fans have high expectations from their favourite players who would take part in the league. The title is currently held by Vancouver Knights and the team would be hoping to continue their form in this year’s edition too.

The charts will definitely fluctuate this year as a lot of new names have joined the league. The excitement level has hit fever pitch for this year’s edition as some retired stars will also entertain the audiences.
Thus, through this article, we would take a look at the 5 cricketers to watch out for in competition:
#5 Chris Lynn
Chris Lynn is one of the best T20 openers in the world at the moment. He was also among the 10 Marquee players of the first edition of Global T20 Canada league.
Widely known for his hard-hitting skills, Lynn once shook the cricketing universe when he smashed Shaun Tait onto the roof of the Gabba Cricket Ground during the Big Bash League.
The star player has had a great IPL career while playing for Kolkata Knight Riders for the last couple of years. Referring to his international T20 career, the Australian batsman has got 291 runs under his belt in 18 matches. He would be hoping to give a great start to the Winnipeg Hawks at the Global Canada T20 with some explosive innings.
