Re: Windies Super50

Decent tournament for Canada. Wish the team was more youthful, but hey, take whatever positives there are. We surely got 3-4 good prospects that can step up to the full team. Adds to the bench strength. Harsh, Sana, Shahid, Mann, Pathan look to have some quality. Please CA get a proper coach now. I ...

Re: Windies Super50

Overall this series is turning out to be a mixed bag. On one side, to be honest, there was a chance of being thoroughly emabarassed, but it did not happen. Infact almost every game Canada has put on decent totals. The down side though is, as Ray pointed out, since different people are doing well in ...

Re: Windies Super50

I have to say I am impressed with the overall performance by these new, but not so young guys. It still takes some skills and great attitude in standing in front of bowlers like Oshane Thomas. If nothing, this tour will create some decent bench strength for future. I still feel we have a very good p...

Re: Windies Super50

I guess the team with all new faces is probably because of unavailability. Also from all accounts all teams suffered in Dubai heat...players too may not be keen on a tournament which is nothing but a improvement opportunity..nothing at stake. Hope these are the reasons. Other I too feel that it is g...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

timmyj, you keep saying 'live with it'. I am totally at peace living with it! Whatever happens, happens. I also believe Canadian team will be strong, whether cricket stays within certain ethnicities or not. Just need a better management. You believe in something else, good for you. Maybe you need a ...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Canada..I am not sure what to make of the team sometimes. My mind tells me we were one of the better teams..surely in the top 6. However their performances in the later matches were so inconsistent and almost amateurish that one has to rethink about the so called potential. I still feel we are on th...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

I was expecting timmyj back the moment Canada under performs. Racist that he is, he cannot help himself dedicate his energy towards pulling down players of colors. Born in Canada or not. UAE, Netherlands, Oman, HK, Singapore may all have players who were born out of their country, but Canada cannot!...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

I wont mince my words. 3-0 in the first three matches, with Ireland and Jersey defeated, Nigeria taken care of, Canada should have comfortably qualified for playoffs. As Jersey showed today, even Oman is not a an unbeatable side. Yes Oman are playing well in the last two years, but nothing in their ...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Why oh why would we bowl first and put the under performing batsman under more pressure???? I really hope I am proved wrong but at the moment it seems absolutely suicidal. Similar to the dumb decision to bat first against Nigeria. Oh..

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

One word. Pathetic. The batsmen are batting with no cricketing nous. This reflects on the players as as well as coach. I have not lost the trust in the talents, but totally lost trust in the temperament, cricketing smarts and coaching. Three batsman, hitting to the same spot and getting out, when th...
