Re: ICC Cricket World Cup Challenge League

Solid (overall) win against Denmark (who we must thank for knocking back Qatar). It leaves Canada one win away from a 5-0 start and a comfortable 4 point lead in the Challenge League 'A' table. I expect they will complete the job against Singapore tomorrow but hope Canada are pushed a little. The te...

Re: ICC Cricket World Cup Challenge League

Canada doing what they have to do. No real challenges to them so far. Congrats to Kumar for his century and 5-for and Wijeyeratne for his 112. The Persian Gulf region appears to be making the most progress on the Associate ladder. UAE have established themselves in the upper echelon and Oman have re...

Re: Canadian Women's cricket

What About The Women? : http://www.canadacricket.com/?p=12998 Not surprised by this sentiment among women cricketers. Only surprised that it took this long for the concerns to be voiced by someone. The ladies need to organize and demand more of CC. It would help advance the entire sport in Canada, n...

Re: ICC Cricket World Cup Challenge League

^ 250? I think we all got a pleasant surprise this morning, Victorian. It's great to see Canada breakout and dominate a team at this level. Thomas was overdue and finally showed his ability. Nitish had a good all-round game. If he could only show that more often he would be help lift the team to the...

Re: ICC Cricket World Cup Challenge League

This was a good win against Vanuatu. It provided enough of a challenge that the bowlers and batsmen had to do some work. Obviously, there is room for improvement. Not sure how Rodriogo Thomas, already off to a poor start internationally, is not more cautious to start the innings. Kumar needs to be m...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Hong Kong, one of Canada's group opponents is suffering a player revolt : https://www.emergingcricket.com/news/babar-hayat-withdraws-from-t20-world-cup-qualifiers/ . This comes after their captain and top bat (Anshy Rath) has left in pursuit of the better opportunities in the Indian system. Bad news...

Re: ICC Cricket World Cup Challenge League

^ No, I don't think the link to the Canada/Denmark match above is fake. Maybe the match had not started when you checked? It seems to look a reasonable scorecard to me. Seems as though the match was reduced to 25 overs. Not sure whether "Khan Khan" (Abraash Khan?) and S Wiyerjaratne retired hurt or ...

Re: ICC Cricket World Cup Challenge League

^ Interesting. Looks like Davy Jacobs and CC have had a falling out. CC don't tend to like criticism and I'm sure there was some on offer after the GT20. If this is indeed how it ends, sad to see his comeback done -easily the most consistent and effective player from the final WCL2. Wijeyeratne back...

Re: ICC favorite son/daughter (yet again)

Yes, I think our Canadian women are already out of the next 50 over CWC. The USA/Canada qualifier series was for the right to be the Americas representative in both 20 and 50 over formats. It was big stakes and we were not prepared as well as we could have been. Even facing bad odds with ICC's suppo...
