Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

One word. Pathetic. The batsmen are batting with no cricketing nous. This reflects on the players as as well as coach. I have not lost the trust in the talents, but totally lost trust in the temperament, cricketing smarts and coaching. Three batsman, hitting to the same spot and getting out, when th...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Need of the hour..put your heads down and fight it out. This tournament is ridiculously close. That is why this hurts most. We could have sealed it today. Except, Nigeria, almost anyone can beat anyone. Canada was rightly expected to beat Jersey, but Jersey beat Oman! UAE beat Ireland..

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Hmm..not a good performance. Especially with ball. Not want to sound too critical, but one single defeat has the potential for huge alarm bells. It seems with all their talent, Singh and Thomas cannot adjust to these slow wickets. Maybe better to have Wijeratne. One other thing, which has been a the...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Excellent win boys..proud of the effort. This was no easy, one man show kind of win. This was a well fought out win. Everything that I had mentioned in my last post about Canadian talent came true. Nitesh, Navneet, Nikhil, Gordon, Heylinger, Hamza..all contributed. I remembered the words of Lalchand...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Good win. Could have been better, but a win is a win. Few things I noted, although they may or may not matter. Canada has the fastest attack in the tournament with couple of guys bowling over 140s. Even Ireland and Scots struggle to do that. Canada has probably the best bowling attack at well. Good ...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Good start. Jersey is one of those teams that are not fancied, but quite decent. Nigeria should be comfortable, although it is cricket... Looking ahead, I think our boys are better than UAE, especially with UAE being without Shaiman and Naveed. IRE will be hard, and although Oman is highly rated, I ...

ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Singapore stuns Scotland..not surprising anymore. All these teams have become so competative. Our boys have their task cut out for them. This will one tough tournament. HK and Kenya too not doing bad against more fancied opponents.

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

Yup for some strange reason, Malaysia is a very preferred host for a long time. Canada could have easily been the hosts. Having said that we dont know if other countries have even put forward their names to host. Ranjit Saini can answer that.
