Re: Global T20 Canada 2020

Perhaps it could be a Canadian only tournament with players from all over the country. Yes, the tournament would probably rely on more Canadians this year than anticipated but would still require a significant amount of foreign content. It would have to get a few of the "icon" players and some seco...

Re: Global T20 Canada 2020

While a 2020 GT20 might not be possible or indeed advisable, the tournament is in the favourable position of being single-venue and not relying on local fans.

Re: Canada @ 2020 Challenge League A (2nd round)

The 2nd round of Challenge League A has apparently been pushed to Sept/Oct 2020 (still in Malaysia). Given the uncertainty of the domestic cricket season for this summer, it is an open question as to whether Canada will be any better prepared than for the original dates in March. We hope all the tea...

Re: Cricket Canada in the Media

So ... a website for Nitish Kumar? : http://www.canadacricket.com/?p=13246 There is not much content other than a few articles and a brief listing of his accomplishments.
