Global T20 Canada 2019: How the final squads stack up

The Global T20 Canada is all set to return for its second season after the resounding success of the inaugural edition of the league last year.

Several of the biggest names in T20 cricket will be in action in the second edition of the league that will last from July 25 to August 11.

The six-team competition features a new franchise in Brampton Wolves, who have replaced GT20 2018's runners-up Cricket West Indies B Team.

Over 1,000 cricketers from 42 countries were included in the draft which was narrowed down to 17-member squads for each of the six participating sides.

As many as six Pakistani cricketers have been signed up for the 22-match tournament which involves a round-robin format with playoffs scheduled for the top four teams.
