commemoration?

2022 will the the 150th anniversary of MCC's first ever overseas tour to USA/Canada in 1872, a team that included W.G. Grace. Are North American cricket authorities planning any kind of commemoration? Could probably get MCC involved. 2009 passed with no 150th commemoration of England's first oversea...

Re: Windies Super50

So much for all the yelping we've been hearing for years from WI that
they're going to do everything they can to help "grow" cricket in the USA. :oops: :oops:

Re: Canada @ 2020 WT20 Americas qualifier

Big break for Canada. With the old pathway would have had to play a whole slew of
matches, lots of travel, over couple of years. "Team USA" and Canada, of course, will be the two who'll
advance. Critical question will be which of the two qualifying groups they'll end up in.

Re: CC looking for help (again)

All very good questions. But CC has had (supposedly) a school/youth program for years. Everyone's in the dark
on how that's going, so its doubtful anyone will hear on any other program. :( :(

Re: ICC favorite son/daughter (yet again)

Surprise! Surprise! ICC Women's Americas Qualifier will be hosted by...(drum roll) USA!!! :o Only four teams in this regional qualifier by far the fewest (Africa has 11!). And only one team from each qualifies. Teams a lot better than USA (shoe-ins given the pathetic state of Canuck women's cricket)...

Re: ICC favorite son/daughter (yet again)

Peter Della Penna says on Twitter ACE recruiting a whole slew of
South Africans. Looks like "Team USA" will become "Team U[nwanted] S[outh] A[fricans]"
in three years. :x :x

Re: Whats wrong with Canada cricket?

22 people may not count as "a large gathering." Anyhow, another wake-up-from-your-fantasy-world
reminder of the insignificant status of Canada's "fastest
growing (cough, :roll: cough :roll: ) sport."

Re: Whats wrong with Canada cricket?

"Fastest growing sport in Canada", you know.

Insignificance may be a blessing. Now cricket's the only
team sport allowed in BC. :o :o :o
