Cricket Canada team delivered yet another solid performance against the Sri Lankan Army in the fourth practice match at Panagoda Army ground. Hiral Patel displayed good all-round skills with his patient knock of 71 (144 Balls) at the top order and strong bowling performance earlier by taking 4 wickets.

While middle order failed and most got out in single digit scores, Srimantha & Nikhil made runs in the end to take Canada to Victory chasing 177 for loss of 7 wickets.

Quality bowling performances earlier were showcased by our bowlers led by Hiral, Varun, Sukhdeep and Harsh Thaker restricting opposition for 177.

Cricket Canada won the match with 3 wickets against some very good Sri Lankan players in the opposition including Prasanna, Srilankan leg spinner, who has played 48 ODIs, 20 T20 matches and 1 test for Srilanka’s National Team. He was accompanied by 4 spinners one of whom was the highest wicket taker in last years first class season in Sri Lanka.

Team is on a winning mode and would want to continue this momentum in the future matches. Tomorrow is  much needed rest day to help team recover.

It was another good practice match for the batsman of Cricket Canada Senior Men’s squad, currently training in Sri Lanka, as they managed to score a massive 311 runs at the loss of only 3 wickets against Old Dharmapaliyan Team.
Nitish (123) and Bhavindu (105) both getting vital centuries were the key contributors to the overall score, leading Canada to a strong total.
Canada’s opening bowlers started well bowling 7 overs and taking a wicket in that short spell, before rain arrived and play was not possible, resulting in a washout. Only two bowlers getting a chance to bowl Mark Monfort and Dilon Heyliger as if not for rain would have been great practice for our bowlers to defend a large total. The match was played at the Army Ground in Dobagoda, Srilanka. 
Cricket Canada Senior Men’s squad under the guidance of coach Monty Desai seem to be improving each day in their performance. The vision is clear of not just winning the ICC WCL Div. 2 Qualifiers but to continue its pathway to become one of the strongest teams within the  Associates world.

After the recent announcement on appointment of Monty Desai as the head coach of Cricket Canada here is coach’s statement.

“I would like to open by thanking the board and management of Cricket Canada for appointing me to the prestigious and demanding position of Head Coach. It is truly an honor to work with an organization that has shown such strong faith in my experience and abilities. There is an excitement to begin this journey where so much is at stake as six countries will be participating in the ICC World Cricket League, Division II Tournament, in Namibia next month.

It has been thrilling to spend these last few days in Sri Lanka with a combination of seasoned players with whom I have previously engaged after having gained additional experience myself. At the same time, the new faces to this game, are equally good, and bring their own unique value to the team. It is evident that we are working with a wide range of skills, and along with the wealth of experience brought by our Captain, Davy Jacobs; it is easy to be very optimistic at the onset of this journey.

That said, we are already into very specific preparation where we have identified roles for individual players to assess their execution of skills under a litany of scenarios. Having played two practice games against formidable sides from Sri Lanka, we have seen firsthand the preliminary outcomes of some reasonably good performances with bat and ball, which is allowing us to better solidify our game-plan moving forward. Nevertheless, we continue to explore few strategies including creating opportunities for each and every player in the squad.

For now, the plan will be to find the right combination early through these practice games we are playing in Sri Lanka. Time and again, I find myself emphasizing wherever I go, that as a team, our focus is to continuously repeat best practices without being overly concerned about the circumstances and consequences. And those best practices, from my perspective, are to plan and prepare well before every game!
