Re: development

I'll say it again, Canada need an U23 or 'A' team to give experience to young or prospective players prior to throwing them into a full international. Matches against touring sides, USA 'A' team, etcetera would be very beneficial to our national team program. After seeing Devesh Shankar's interview...

Re: Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Upon reading further, by finishing 4th in their group Canada would have to win a single match to advance from this tournament. Whereas, finishing 2nd or 3rd gives them two shots at advancing. The prospect seems realistic. The issue is that Canada has very little experience in big games at this leve...

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...
