Cricket Canada has announced the names of a strong fourteen member Men’s Senior Team Squad to participate in the 2020 International Cricket Council (ICC) Cricket World Cup Challenge League A. The Tournament, which will be a part of the qualification process for the 2023 ICC Word Cup, will be held in Malaysia from March 14 – 27, 2020. Canada will play fifty 0vers matches against ICC Division A country teams representing Denmark, Qatar, Singapore, Vanuatu and hosts Malaysia during the Tournament.

Nitish Kumar, Abrash Khan, Ravinderpal Singh, Harsh Thaker, Varun Sehdev and Srimantha Wijeyeratne, will provide batting support to Dhaliwal.

They will be ably supported by the part-time spin offerings of Nitish Kumar and Dhaliwal himself. Romesh Eranga and Faizal Jamkhandi are the only two seamers included in the squad, the wicket-keeping duties for which will be shared by Srimantha Wijeyeratne and Armaan Kapoor.

Experienced South African Amarinder Bhinder will be the Head Coach for the Canadian Squad, which will be managed by Carlos Ragoonath. Surendra Seeraj (Assistant Coach), Daulat Khan (Asst Coach/Analyst) and Tejash Patel (Physio) will be the other members of the Canadian Squad’s management team.

Canada, needing to beat the UAE in their final match of the round robin in the ICC WCT20 qualifier,  lost by 14 runs, and failed to make the play offs. Three consecutive losses saw them fall to 5th place in the group. 

Canada won the toss, chose to bowl, and got off to a great start, with Romesh Eranga bowling Rohan Mustafa in the first over, and Junaid Siddiqui, playing his first match of the tournament and opening the bowling, having Chirag Suri caught off his first ball. Saad Bin Zafar broke a promising partnership when Rameez Shahzad was given leg before- 48/3 in the 8th over. Tight bowling meant UAE did not hit a boundary in the middle 8 overs. Saad Bin Zafar took his second wicket in the 18th over, thanks to a fine stumping from Hamza Tariq, and his third next ball to a catch in the deep. He finished his spell with 3/21 from four overs. The UAE hit well to take 40 from the last two overs to set Canada a target of 155. Muhammad Usman made 89*. of their total of 154/5.

Wijeyeratne got Canada off to a bright start with 21 from 15 balls, but the scoring slowed in the middle overs. Navneet Dhaliwal made 41 from 36 balls but when he was out, Canada needed 73 from 7 overs. Ravinderpal Singh hit a couple of boundaries but with 28 needed from the last two overs he was caught in the deep. Kirton was unbeaten at the end, making  37 but took 39 balls in doing so. Canada finished on 140/5.
