Re: WT20 Qualifier

So Canada finish the Americas qualifier undefeated. They'll still need to step it up a notch to contend in UAE. The squad is pretty much set but we might expect to see the youngsters Khan and Thaker replaced for the World T20 Qualifier in October. Who to bring into the team? Will there be a Cricket...

Re: WT20 Qualifier

0-2??? I'm gonna say they shouldn't select Cheema anymore. He gets out for very low totals too often. I'd say you're right. That's two ducks against Cayman Islands. The competition is not going to get easier at the T20 global qualifier. Bhavindu Adhihetty might be a replacement for Rizwan. Rodrigo ...

Re: WT20 Qualifier

I think England even has plans or at least puts a lot of thought into reaching out to their asian population. With huge drops in participation they'll have to. And the asian population is interested in cricket anyways..so it is far easier to tie some loose ends and get them more involved. It is an ...

Re: WT20 Qualifier

Not really a big game against USA. Beat CI and Bermuda twice and they're through. Of course, weather can upset those plans. Surely, they should make up abandoned games on days off! With two teams qualifying should be a walkover for ICC International XI...Oops! I mean "Team USA" ;) ;) ...and Canada....

^ That's the hope. It also helps that the tournament started only a week after GT20.

Big match against USA coming up on Wednesday.
Yes..

Re: WT20 Qualifier

Dont want to jinx our boys, but maybe we can already see the benefits of our boys participation in an event like GT20. Atleast at this stage they seem to be at a different level to Caymans or the Bermudas..and Bermuda did beat USA. USA is not a bad team..

Re: Cricket in the 2028 Olympics (Los Angeles)?

The host country team AUTOMATICALLY gets in. Before anything, gotta persuade organizers to even let cricket into their games (host organizers have a lot of discretion here). If they don't want it, NO cricket for anyone! :oops: Wont we surprised if they say no...that has always been my point, no poi...

Re: Global T20 Canada 2019

Right now, at least, CC has the T20 WC Americas and then, presumably, the global qualifier. Also, the Challenge League. After this fall, though, perhaps not much. I wonder if there are unpaid bills yet from the GT20. Probably. We can just hope that things will be sorted out, somehow and if not Euro...
