Martin Vierra sets
the record straight (Jon Harris)
There have been some rumours about
the players selected for the tournament in which the u-19
Canadian team is currently participating in.
I have been advised by Martin Vierra
1. There are NO players on the
Canadian squad who are not eligible to take part in the TCL
W.I. U19 tournament as outlined by the WICB.
2. Every tournament has
different eligibility rules, the TCL U19 WICB is different
from the Americas U19, and different from the Youth World
3. Canada is looking at some
players who will be eligible for the World Cup, but were not
eligible for the Americas U19.
4. The current tour is not an ICC
tournament and therefore ICC eligibility does not apply.
However all of the Canadian players meet and surpass any
requirement of the tournament they are currently taking part
The touring party is made up of the
