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...

Re: Auty Cup

Unfortunately, the U.S. vs Canada matches did not come to pass. We have to hope the team has had/will have some game situation practice prior to their first match.

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

^ Nepal are not part of the T20 WC Qualifier, having been knocked out by Singapore in the Asian regional T20s. As Bertus de Jong's graphic ( https://twitter.com/BdJcricket/status/1168920682421526531 ) explains, finishing 4th in their group Canada would have to win two consecutive matches to advance ...
