Re: Canada @ 2020 ICC U19 World Cup

Canada's 3rd pool match against Afghanistan is abandoned. Fortunately, the consolation round awaits, though after finishing last in their group they will likely face a test nation first off.

Re: Canada @ 2020 ICC U19 World Cup

The Canadian bowling was again unable to restrict an opponent with South Africa putting up a huge total. The required run rate was always going to be too much. Kumar and Calitz were the stand-out performers on the day in a 150 run loss.

Re: Canada @ 2020 ICC U19 World Cup

Canada's next opponent is the host, South Africa. After some underwhelming results in the new year and in their 1st pool match, they'll be feeling the pressure to perform in front of the country. Can Canada take advantage? The last time these two met in the U19 WC, six year ago, the Canadians gave t...

Re: Canada @ 2020 ICC U19 World Cup

It only took the Aussies 7.4 overs to surpass Canada's total of 114 with all the Canadian bowlers having economies in double figures. One match they will need to put behind them quick...
