Re: Interviews of CC Board, Players, etc.

Did he say there will be a 1st class league in 3-4 years? Unlimited overs? I hope so but...why? I think he means that player skills will improve and he's probably right but no Associate has played a multi day game in two years. (Nepal did against MCC). Let's go for a 50 over domestic league first.

Re: Interviews of CC Board, Players, etc.

Re: Saini's interview from Jan.12 It seems that the perfect is the enemy of the good. CC needs to do this and that and this and that and this and that and it would cost two million dollars. CC doesn't have two million dollars. OK. But if players need more high quality competition domestically, more ...

Re: Interviews of CC Board, Players, etc.

My thoughts about Saini's 2nd interview (Dec. 29). The reason to have an Assoc. of Cricket Officials is to help show the ICC that the game is growing in Canada, not to have Canadians officiating ODIs. Also, I guess, national standards. No mention of scorers :( I do not accept Saini's position on the...

Re: Interviews of CC Board, Players, etc.

I finally got around to listening to the first interview (Dec. 24). If we complain there's no communication, we should listen when there IS communication. I am aware that there are selectors present at regional T20s but I never heard about selection to a national championship! There has to be a bala...

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

We're only two months out. What is going on for preparation. Some guys must be working out...? What about warmup games/tours? They can't expect to waltz through this tournament.

Re: development

New Zealand is going big on girls cricket. I'm sure the reason is women's cricket is where the growth is going to come from. Canada is going to be left behind.

Re: Canada @ 2020 ICC U19 World Cup

Any idea of warm ups/preparation for this tournament? It starts in a month. Actually, I don't think they've announced the team yet. I hope there was national representation at the training camp. Obviously, they need to practice outdoors.

Re: Canadian overseas pros

OK, OK, I couldn't resist checking out the stats. Ravi Singh has 22 runs, H. Singh (ie Harmandeep) has 13 runs and 1 wicket, and Saad bin Zafar has 2 wickets and a 0*. They're all playing!

Re: Canadian overseas pros

Good for them and, actually, the experience should help them. I hope they get paid. With plenty of 1st class cricket on youtube, I, at least, won't be following too closely. The official website calls it "cricketainment" :shock:
