As a captain in the RCAF he served with distinction but also served amature athletics playing Rugby, Soccer, Field Hockey and Cricket. While serving both OVCA and OCA, Jimmy eventually ascended to Cricket Canada's (then CCA's) presidency where he served with distinction.

As administrators, we should strive to extoll the virtues of hard work and dedication that Jimmy practiced.

Canada vs. Bangladesh in the plate semi-final

Half centuries from Nikhil Dutta and Nitish Kumar were not enough to chase down West Indies. Canada move on to the plate round

Faseen Valli became the first batsman in the tournament to score a century and take four wickets in the same match as South Africa overcame a spirited challenge from Canada to win its Group C clash of the ICC Under-19 World Cup by 45 runs at the Abu Dhabi Oval 1.

On Sunday (February 16), Valli’s all-round show ensured South Africa registered its second consecutive win of the tournament to put itself on top of the Group C standings. He scored an unbeaten 102 from 92 balls, with 10 fours and two sixes, and featured in a 102-run fifth-wicket partnership with Bradley Dial (47) as South Africa posted 293 for 6 after being sent into bat.

It was an uphill task, but Canada put up a valiant fight. Sudeepta Aurka, the opener, made a solid 69 and was well assisted by Nitish Kumar (53), the captain. The duo’s stand of 101 for the second wicket ensured Canada needed just a little over seven an over for the last 18 overs, but a middle order collapse put paid to its hopes.

Valli’s offspin proved tough for Canada to negotiate as he returned figures of 4 for 43 in his ten overs. Canada’s innings ended at 248 for 8 in 50 overs, with Sibonela Makhanya, the medium pacer, picking up three wickets. 

Valli is now the leading run-getter and wicket-taker in the tournament with 155 runs and six wickets respectively. 

Canada now take on West Indies on Tuesday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium Nursery 1 in Abu Dhabi while South Africa will face Zimbabwe on the same day.

Cricket Canada Vice President Amit Joshi was pleased with the team's preparation and wished them well as they left.

"U19 Cricket World Cup in Dubai is a wonderful opportunity for our promising young players ,who are best in Canada ,to compete against the top cricketing countries in the World. We are lucky to have such vast talent within the country but the credit must go to these players, parents, and their coaches for all the efforts and practice that the players have gone through

Our junior program development initiatives included a summer camp, NCL participation and Canada Cup in the last two years and these events have been a huge bonus especially helping national selectors pick the best players from all over Canada. We have been also successful in finding ways to expose a good portion of these junior players to top level competition in other countries where cricket is played year around. Two players who were part of the senior team have just returned from New Zealand and we are positive that experience has helped them gain momentum and perform at the top level."
