Re: Global T20 Canada 2019

^Timeout guys. The original thread is the best place for the discussion : http://www.canadacricket.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=80 Meanwhile, back at the GT20 there is evidently considerable flexibility in the line-ups. Many of the sides have lost players due to withdrawals. Interestingly, teams ...

Re: Global T20 Canada 2019

This is the cruz of the matter. The expat community just doesn't know, nor cares to know, how to sell their game to mainstream North Americans. Have worked with many, many, Americans at cricket over the years and have had no problem at all getting them enthusiastic about the game. In fact, put me i...

Re: Global T20 Canada 2019

Yup, this gig will go on without involvement of mainstream Canucks, that's for sure. And so cricket in North America is doomed to be nothing but a minor, insignificant, inconsequential, sport only played and followed by a small ethnic minority. No other sport on the face of this planet would accept...

Re: Global T20 Canada 2019

I certainly wouldn't permit a tourney in my backyard that serves notice it's not at all interested in "exposing the sport" to the mainstream populace. If I'm gonna allow a sporting event here I'd REQUIRE that event to reach out to ALL Canadians... not just a small ethnic minority. Apparently CC doe...

Re: Global T20 Canada 2019

Site claims 4083 attendance first match. If this is what they get for rest of matches will it pay the bills? Encouraging crowd considering it is geared only for overseas market and it was a Thursday afternoon. Will see when timmyj51 will see anything positive in through the tournament :D :D Or woul...

Re: Global T20 and the need to change the mindset in Canada

I think this is a really interesting discussion. The relative disappearance of Canadian cricketers of West Indies heritage does seem to be due to the fact the sport is not passed down to the Canadian born 2nd generation. There are many reasons for this, including the choices that were available to ...

Re: Global T20 and the need to change the mindset in Canada

@timmyj51 - Will try to explain my point once more, since you did not get it. You seem to be living in the old world and probably wants to be dependent on the 'mainstream' throwing you some crumbs, rather than trying to build something substantial that a big enough population can still enjoy and pre...

Global T20 and the need to change the mindset in Canada

Just returned from UK from the World Cup. This world cup changed the way I viewed the game, its fans and future of the game. It was well reported on various major sites, that there was a danger of stadiums being half empty for semi-finals and finals, without India featuring in them. Fortunately that...

Re: Global T20 Canada

Finals were certainly the best attended in the tourney but hardly a sell out. Looked at the highlight video and still saw fair amount of empty seats, at least in the bleachers. More importantly WHO were in the stands? Just expats or mainstream Canucks? As I posted earlier, will Meruri release offic...
