Re: Global T20 Canada 2019

Article really didn't say much. Where is this "new venue" going to be? And
if the "Asian market" is what they're after its doomed to failure like every other
cricket venture that ignores the mainstream populace.

Re: 2019 ICC Americas Women's Qualifier

Canuck women need to clearly understand what ICC expects of them in this Americas Qualifier with favored daughter, USA, (whose tickets to the WWC Qualifier have probably already been booked):
(1) show up (2) lose (3) get lost.

Re: CC looking for help (again)

This is a position that's gonna be almost IMPOSSIBLE to effectively fill. The applicant has to answer to half a dozen different people (CC, sponsors, government, outside event organizers, etc) and is essentially being asked to sell cricket to mainstream Canucks even though there's no job requirement...

Re: Americas A Qualifier

South Americans doing a hell of a lot more organizing the

Re: Global T20 Canada 2019

Um...I don't see that Times India article AT ALL "confirming" the
Canada Global T20 for 2019. It just says the guy who masterminded
the "success" [cough, cough!] of the Canada gig will now try his hand
in Europe.

Re: Global T20 Canada 2019

Well, as is the case with just about every cricket position in North America,
every things secretive. No announcement of who has the position? No
public announcement of promotion plans? The only question remains:
can they generate interest among mainstream Canucks?

Re: 2019 ICC Americas Women's Qualifier

Even Mexicans are outdoing USA/Canada in attracting women cricket players! Remember
seeing somewhere that Bermuda will also be participating in the Americas qualifier....
