The playoff stages of the Global T20 Canada saw the Surrey Jaguars register a comprehensive 38-run victory over the Vancouver Knights in Qualifier 1 to find themselves in the final.

Their victory was enabled by the sensational bowling performances of Junaid Siddique (4/22), Ruben Trumpelmann (2/26) and Karthik Meiyappan (2/24). The second encounter of the day saw the Montreal Tigers assert a dominant victory over the Brampton Wolves, winning by 9 wickets (with 34 balls remaining) in the Eliminator Chris Lynn played a stellar knock to ensure the victory for the Tigers. With the day’s results, the Surrey Jaguars have made their way to the final, while Vancouver Knights take on the Brampton Wolves for a place in the finals.

The Jaguars were asked to set a target by the Vancouver Knights. Both openers, Mohammad Haris (20) and Jatinder Singh (15) got starts but failed to make it count. At the end of the powerplay, the Jaguars were placed at 45/2. Pargat Singh (2) ran himself out soon after, while Litton Das (16) also departed after a promising start. Skipper Iftikhar Ahmed (36) and Ayaan Khan (29) put together a partnership, but both batters were scalped in pursuit of a higher run rate. Following their demise, their tail struggled to make an impact. Junaid Siddique (4/22) was the standout bowler for the Knights, restricting the Jaguars to 139/9.

The Knights’ response fell apart early on. At the end of the powerplay, the Knights were struggling at 31/4 with the early dismissals of Rayyan Pathan (4), Mohammad Rizwan (4), Rassie Van Der Dussen (6) and Harsh Thaker (4). Following this, Najibullah Zadran (15) and Fabian Allen (27) were a glimmer of hope but departed soon enough.
