Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Nice podcast with a preview of teams and their chances. Canada seems to be one of the favoured teams to get through based on recent form. Also the tournament is indeed on TV. About half the matches. Will be very interesting to watch the new teams. It should be very interesting. https://emergingcrick...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

That seems strange to have warm ups based on rankings!

I have seen an ad on willow tv for telecast of this tournament. Any news or confirmation? Are we lucky enough to see this live? Would be nice to see all these new teams, rather than India scoring 202-0 vs SA! Nothing new in that match.

Re: Whats wrong with Canada cricket?

Lately Singapore, Malaysia have hosted some T20 tournaments or tours. Nepal have been down to that region a few times (not even counting ICC Asian T20 qualifiers). How are these boards able to afford the cost of hosting? Malaysia manages to hold T20Is even though there were no fans watching in the ...

Smoke and mirrors. Sing'pore "beat" Zimbos because of their latest mercenary, the Aussie David.
...and the Zimbos weren't at full strength. Yeah, Sing'pore team "diverse"...no Singporers, all foreigners. :oops: :oops:
:D all are qualified Singaporeans. End of topic. :D

Re: Whats wrong with Canada cricket?

Just saw Singapore defeat a full member, Zimbabwe. It was mostly 11 hardworking and talented cricketers from diverse, mostly south asian backgrounds, working very hard to get a win for THEIR country. All were human beings and cricketers first, and making their country proud. Sorry timmyj51, you woul...

Re: Whats wrong with Canada cricket?

Cricket is only played by a small ETHNIC group of Canadians. As such, it will NEVER be internationally competitive, NEVER get major media attention, NEVER get sponsors or significant government support, NEVER attract competent management. Better learn to live with all that. :( :( Absolutely comfort...

Real fans of cricket like Daniel Weston, gets everyone who wants to play,to the ground. Without bais. What a inspiring story...

Re: ICC Cricket World Cup Challenge League

Yes, I'm sure the points will be carried over to the next "round". Canada and Singapore tied on 8 points with Canada ahead on NRR. Qatar and Denmark not far behind with Canada's loss. Still 2 rounds and 10 matches to be played. Hope that Canada will host a round. Canada must beat Singapore next tim...

Re: Whats wrong with Canada cricket?

Lets not try to sugar coat it. Canada cricket has been on a downward spiral for years. Gone is the WC. Then went ODI status. And now down to D3! Why? Pictures tell a thousand words. Look at the team photos of the Canada national teams from the 60s/70s. What do you see? A cross section of Canada soc...
