Canada first came to cricket world cup as early as in year 1979, lost all 3 matches and local fans failed to find the interest. Soon, all squads members went into different directions and for over two decades, Canada cricket failed to rise once again. Canada came back to world cup in 2003, began well by beating higher ranked Bangladesh but then lost all remaining 5 games. They qualified for 2007 edition as well but again lost all the three games..
Now, Canada comes to their 4th assignment. can they better their performance this time? only time will tell but fans back home will be hoping their team can put up solid show against other smaller teams in the group like Kenya and Zimbabwe. here's the 15 member squad given the responsbility :-
Ashish Bagai has been the wicket keeper of Canada cricket team since 2003 and is now their most experienced player, and hence is chosen as they captain. John Davison holds the record of second fastest ton in world cup which makes him the most valuable batsman in the squad but allrounder Rizwan cheema is someone to watch out for. he's also the wicket keeper of Canada's world cup squad.
