Canada @ 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier

Post by ray » Fri Aug 23, 2019 8:02 am

Canada and Bermuda advance from the Americas region to the global qualifier held in UAE October 11-November 3, 2019.

There are fourteen teams participating suggesting a preliminary round consisting of 2 groups of seven from which four teams advance to a second round. The qualifier has six berths available to the [Edit: 1st round] 2020 ICC T20 World Cup.

Canada has fared poorly overall in the T20 format, finishing last in their group in the 2015 qualifier. However, with Zimbabwe and Nepal out and the experience of GT20 behind them, Canada has a good shot at making the 2nd round.

Nepal and Singapore are preparing for the global qualifier with a tri series with Zimbabwe. I wonder what Canada will do to prepare closer to the time?

^ Nepal are not part of the T20 WC Qualifier, having been knocked out by Singapore in the Asian regional T20s.

As Bertus de Jong's graphic (https://twitter.com/BdJcricket/status/1 ... 2421526531 ) explains, finishing 4th in their group Canada would have to win two consecutive matches to advance to the T20 WC. Whereas, finishing 3rd would provide a chance of a single win doing the job. Anything better would be a bonus, but that much harder to achieve.

If Canada plays to its potential, I dont see why they should win a number of matches. For change they have a team that others will be wary of. Lets hope for the best.
Ravi Singh, Navneet, Cheema, Thomas, Saad all can be destrictive on their day and have decent steady backup in Nitesh and Hamza. Bowling seems well stocked too. Now for the small matter of performing on the day!
