Re: Windies Super50

Nicholas Kirton has been named to the Barbados Pride for the Super 50. So again this year, an extra Canada player will participate in the tournament. This might be his best chance to make an impression and a career in cricket while remaining eligible for Canada. He will need to make the most of it. ...

Re: ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

^ Not confirmed yet but it is a likely outcome for the 2021 T20 WC qualifiers. I hope it is only for that tournament and the ICC don't dispense with the global qualifier going forward. So a big Canada/USA showdown on the cards for next year. I can't see Bermuda getting through ahead of both of them....

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Back to the topic at hand.
Scotland brushed aside UAE to claim a spot at the T20 WC. I see no reason to think Canada would have fared any better against the Netherlands or Scotland. The team will need to sort out the openers and are still looking for a middle order batsman and opening bowlers.

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

^ Oh my, timmyj :shock: . My respect for you is diminished. You had been at least consistent in your criticism of teams using "Ex-pats". I can sympathize with that to a degree. Cricket is limited if it never moves beyond players from cricket-playing backgrounds. However, your apparent lauding of the...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

^ timmyj lurking in the weeds until Canada is safely eliminated before boldly making his statement :D Welcome back. Canadian team has lots of problems. A dependence on players from traditional cricket backgrounds is just one of them. Oman and UAE are in the playoffs and it would not a surprise to se...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Canada finishes with 3 consecutive losses to again miss the T20 World Cup. I thought going in that the Canadians would need to play at a higher level and in the end they could not. There were a few good performances here and there but against the teams they had to beat, the players mostly underwhelm...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

So Jersey just knocked off Oman, something Canada never looked like being capable. Canada's path to the playoffs is through UAE. If successful, we face the Netherlands. Lose that and it's a rested Scotland. Not any easy prospects but the only chance is one match at a time and victory over the hosts.

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Canada 144/9 vs Oman After a solid foundation from Weijeyeratne, the team was not able to accelerate. Wickets falling like dominoes in the end. It's runs on the board but the bowlers have a huge ask ahead of them. Again, Dhaliwal not really able to inflict much damage against Oman. His consistency h...
