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...

Re: Global T20 Canada

Yes a good conclusion and a perfect example of what good can come through this. Amazingly a Canadian player was man of the match, with others like Nitest and Nikhil dhowing that they are up there in talent terms. Congratulations and well done to Ashit Patel and his team..it was unbeliveable to pull ...

Re: Global T20 Canada

Has (or will) Mercuri release official attendance figures? Would not be interested in any negative things timmyj..me personally would not be interested because I have aeen the attendance on tv and it must be very low. Did you not see the telecast? If yes..what do you gain from 'official numbers'. K...

Re: Global T20 Canada

The world has moved on lightyears in 10 years. Ten years ago, televised cricket was much harder to find in North America, or even on the internet. The IPL was a baby. The whole world wasn't glued to screens in the palms of their hands every minute. To understand what's going on, it's important to u...
