Brampton’s hometown team will go head-to-head with some cross-country rivals at the GT20 cricket tournament this week.
The GT20 tournament is in full swing at Brampton’s CAA Centre and will see the Brampton Wolves take on the Surrey Jaguars on Wednesday (Aug. 1).
The two squads are evenly matched with two wins a piece in this year’s competition, as star Brampton bowler Logan Van Beek will look to help the team rebound from a loss to the Vancouver Knights on Saturday.
Brampton is currently ranked No. 2 in the tournament at eight points while Surrey is close behind at third place with six points, with both teams chasing the first-place Montreal Tigers.
The Wolves came away with the win in their opening match against the Mississauga Panthers and followed up with another victory over the Tigers, but fell in their third outing against Vancouver, losing by nine wickets.
Now in its third year after a hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic, the tournament is being broadcast in 150 countries with organizers saying the tournament’s viewing and streaming numbers could eclipse the 2023 Super Bowl’s 115.1 million watchers.
The tournament is being held in a temporary stadium at the Brampton Sports Park at 75757 Kennedy Rd. South, and while the GT20 facilities are only temporary Brampton is looking for partners to build a new cricket stadium and sports and entertainment district that could be the future home of events like GT20.
