Surrey Jaguars and Mississauga Panthers will face off in the 20th match of the Global T20 Canada 2023 on Wednesday, August 2 (Thursday, August 3 in India). The CAA Centre in Brampton, Ontario, will play host to this match.
The Knights have a realistic chance of moving into the top two of the table if they win their last game and Surrey Jaguars lose to the Mississauga Panthers.
The Rassie van der Dussen-led team is currently placed fourth in the table with seven points and a net run rate of +0.479 thanks to wins in three out of six matches. They defeated the Montreal Tigers by nine wickets in their previous match.
The Nationals, on the other hand, need a victory to have any chance of making it to the playoffs. Currently, they are placed fifth in the table with five points and a net run rate of +0.224.
They have to beat the Knights and also improve their net run rate to move to the fourth spot. They will go into the game on the back of a 23-run defeat to table-toppers Montreal Tigers in a rain-curtailed six-over match.
