Canada would look to continue with its good form as they take on Saudi Arabia in the 3rd game of the Desert Cup T20I Series 2022. Canadians come here with a 4-wicket win against Bahrain, and the side would feel confident. Saudia Arabia returned to T20 cricket with a big loss against Oman, and they would feel the heat.  

Canada chased down a big score in the last game, and their batsmen look in excellent form. The side has played well in recent months, and their players have had match practices that put them in a comfortable position. It will be a massive challenge for Saudi Arabia after the scale of their loss in the last game. 

Canada Preview

Saad Bin Zafar would be happy with the win against Bahrain in the last game. The fact that the side chased down the big total clinically would make the skipper confident in this game. However, Zafar would like better spells from his bowlers, as they went for runs in the last game.  

Aaron Johnson and Mathew Spoors played well at the top in the last game, and a similar show would be needed from them here. Pargat Singh, Srimantha Wijeratne, and Ravinderpal Singh make it a solid middle order. The side would also expect runs from Shreyas Movva and Saad Bin Zafar down the order.  

On the bowling front, the side has to make improvements. They would need good spells with the new ball from Kaleem Sana and Saad Bin Zafar. Ammar Khalid and Harsh Thaker must bowl good lines in the middle overs. Pargat Singh and Salman Nazar add variety to their attack.  

Canada Predicted Playing XI:

Saad Bin Zafar (c), Aaron Johnson, Matthew Spoors, Pargat Singh, Srimantha Wijeratne, Ravinderpal Singh, Harsh Thaker, Shreyas Movva (wk), Salman Nazar, Ammar Khalid, Kaleem Sana

Saudi Arabia Preview

Abdul Waheed would be a worried man. His side suffered a 9-wicket loss in the last game against Oman. Their batters couldn't stand up to the challenge managing only 80 runs in their 20 overs. It will be a tough contest against Canada, and Waheed shall like to see a better show from his batsmen.  

Openers Faisal Khan and Abdul Waheed struggled in the last game. The side would need a good show from them. Kashif Siddique, Mohammed Hisham Shaikh, and Saad Khan must do well in the middle order and score runs at a good pace. Down the order, Irfan Sarfaraz, Haseeb Ghafoor, and Zain Ul Abidin need to make their contributions.  

The bowling attack looked underprepared in the last game, and the side would need better spells with the new ball from Ishtiaq Ahmad and Atif-Ur-Rehman. Muhammad Saqib used the conditions well and must do well for the side's cause. Mohammed Hisham Shaikh and Zain Ul Abidin shall also have to bowl good lines here. 

Saudi Arabia Predicted Playing XI:

Abdul Waheed (c), Faisal Khan, Kashif Siddique, Mohammed Hisham Shaikh, Saad Khan, Irfan Sarfaraz, Haseeb Ghafoor (wk), Zain Ul Abidin, Ishtiaq Ahmad, Atif-Ur-Rehman, Muhammad Saqib
