SCORECARD

Canada's touring side kicked off the Irish tour with a dominating 40 over warm up performance on Saturday vs Leprechauns CC at North Kildare in Kilcock, County Kildare.  This was the only scheduled warm-up fixture for the tour.

Played under prodominately overcast, wet, and windy conditions, Canadian XI Skipper Jimmy Hansra was buoyant on the positive start to the team's tour.  

"It was a well fought contest and a good experience for us playing in overcast and wet conditions. Everybody chipped in on the batting side with Gunasekera's knock being the stand out contribution."  

Hansra was equally positive about his side's seamer's who grabbed the lion's share of the Leprechaun wickets.

"The bowlers bowled positively and used the conditions well. It's a good start to the tour and we will take this winning attitude and momentum into our series against Ireland"

The match was covered live with special thanks to Railway CC's Derek Caroll via a live Google Docs scorecard and regular updates on Cricket Canada's FACEBOOK and TWITTER feeds.

Cricket Canada is pleased to release its 14 man touring squad for the ICUP and ODI tour of Ireland, which commences September 13th, 2011.

The squad, led by Amarbir (Jimmy) Hansra, will depart Toronto on September 8th for Dublin after playing a 2-day warm-up match in Toronto on September 6th and 7th at Maple Leaf Cricket Club, King City.

In partnership with Cricket Ireland and the ICC, both ODI’s in the series (September 19th & 20th) will be streamed LIVE on gocricketgocanada.com.

Back in the touring squad is 17-year-old batting phenom Nitish Kumar, who missed Canada’s August home series with Afghanistan while representing Canada u19 at the Global u19 Qualifiers.  Kumar, having relocated to the UK, where he will study at Repton School in Derbyshire, is joined by some of Canada’s equally outstanding young talent in wicket keeper batsmen Hamza Tariq and Usman Limbada, both fresh off match winning partnerships in the Etihad Summer Festival.

Making his first official senior team tour selection is 19 year old British Columbia seamer, Manny Aulakh.  Aulakh was the leading wicket taker at the Global u19 World Cup Qualifiers in Ireland and recently helped lead his domestic provincial side to the National League T20 Western Division title in Edmonton.

Aulakh will join the usual suspects of Canada’s experienced seam quartet, consisting of Henry Osinde, Khurram Chohan, Harvir Baidwan, and batting all-rounder Rizwan Cheema.

Chohan and Baidwan both spent much of their summer’s in UK conditions playing league cricket in Yorkshire and Sussex respectively.

A CAMPAIGN to induct a cricketer into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame for the first time is gathering momentum. You may not have heard of him but Frederick Heather above far left is a Canadian cricket hero. I must admit a vested interest – he was my great uncle. I was only two when he died in 1976 but have taken care of Heather’s unique and large cricket collection, which includes a letter from Jack Hobbs.

Cricket's oldest international contest resumed this week after a 16 year gap, played like that 1995 fixture at the Toronto Cricket, Skating and Curling Club. And also like that match, Canada were again the winners, though not by as big a margin as back then - 128 runs.

To help make a result likely in the two-day match, each first innings was limited to 45 overs and each second innings to 40 overs. To ensure that it wasn't too much like a two innings limited overs match though, bowlers weren't restricted in how many overs they could bowl.

DAY 1

The USA, playing their first match over more than one-day since 2004, won the toss and elected to field first. Canada started their first innings well with a 71 opening partnership before Khushroo Wadia was bowled by Anand Tummala. His opening partner Hiral Patel stayed in to score 75.

Rustam Bhatti and Nitish Kumar were also in the runs, scoring 53 and 58 respectively. Kumar, fresh from the Under-19 World Cup Qualifier in Ireland where he scored two centuries, scored his 58 from just 45 balls, helping to take his team to 239-4 from their 45 overs.

The USA reply started badly when Akeem Dodson was out with the score on just one. Things soon went from bad to worse and the USA were on 24-4. USA captain Jignesh Desai top scored for them with 43 before he became the second of three wickets for Khurram Chohan. The visitors were bowled out for 166.

DAY 2

On day two, Canada's second innings saw Khushroo Wadia out with the score on three, with Usman Limbada and Nitish Kumar also going cheaply, leaving Canada on 39-3. A partnership of 93 between Hiral Patel and Canadian skipper Jimmy Hansra then recovered the innings before Patel was out for 80.

Hansra played a fine knock once Patel was out, scoring exactly 100 from 89 balls, including six sixes before he was out from the last ball of the Canadian innings, his team having scored 231-6, setting the USA a formidable target of 305 in their 40 overs.

Remarkably, given their performance in the Twenty20 tournament that preceded this match, the USA got a lot closer than many would have expected.

The opening pair of Quasen Alfred and Andy Mohammed put on 68, and number three Anand Tummala scored 63. Down the order, Jignesh Desai smashed 62 from 45 balls, but in the end the Americans were bowled out for 270, losing by 34 runs. Parth Desai, Junaid Siddiqui and Jimmy Hansra all took three wickets in the innings.

Canada will now prepare for their visit to Ireland in September where they will play an Intercontinental Cup match and two ODIs. The USA have no scheduled matches before the World Twenty20 qualifier in Dubai early next year

Canada continued to assert its cricket dominace over the USA as the Auty Cup 2 day match got underway from the Toronto Cricket Skating & Curling Club (141 Wilson Avenue).  

The Auty Cup is recognized as the oldest international sporting fixture in the world, being first played between Canada and the USA in 1844.

Winning the toss and putting Canada into bat on a track that was sure to provide some entertaining cricket, the American bowlers did reasonably well to keep the Canadian 1st innings within reach.  After a somewhat cautious start Canada steadily progressed to a first innings total of 239 for 4 from 45 overs.  Canadian opener Hiral Patel continued his strong festival form compiling a well molded 75 from 85 balls and held key partnerships with Khurshroo Wadia (37) and Rustam Bhatti (53).  The innings climaxed with an explosive knock from Nitish Kumar (58 from 45) which included some classic offside stroke play and a massive six, played on the rise, which landed on Wilson Avenue.

The American innings started with some confusion as poor running between the wickets and some sharp Canadian fielding claimed the first two US batsmen.  The rest of the top order had little answer to the bowling of Canadian seamers Khurram Chohan (3-40 from 11 Overs) and Manny Aulakh on debut (1-46 from 10 overs). 

The only substantial resistance came from the US skipper Jignesh Desai (43) and bowling allrounder Bim George (31) as the US were all out for 166 in 42.4 overs. 

Canada head into day 2 holding a convincing 73 run lead and will look to continue their strong from.  

This new and exciting 2 day format gives each team two innings of 45 overs each.  Second day's play commences Tuesday at 9:30am and will complete by 4:30pm.

The 2011 Etihad Summer Cricket Festival T20 tournament has come to a end with Trinidad and Tobago winning the championship. The Caribbean T20 championship side breezed through an easy win over Canada in the de-facto final on Saturday. Canada lost early wickets after winning the toss and electing to bat. While no Canadian batsmen was able to get going, the tail wagged slightly to get Canada over the 100 mark finishing on 113-9 in 20 overs.

In reply, Adrian Barath carried the game away from Canada as the diminutive opener's half century shook off the loss of early wickets and delivered the championship for his team.

T&T, Canada and Afghanistan all finished with 2-1 records however T&T"s superior runrate was enough to put them over the top.

Earlier in the day, USA and Afghanistan clashed in a one sided affair. While Afghanistan stalled midway through their innings and settled for 160 when more was on the cards, their win was never really in doubt as USA capitulated for 116. The fight and grit for the USA eventually cost Afghanistan the title as their runrate slipped well below that of T&T

After a whirlwind first day, the Etihad Summer Festival kicked into high gear on Day 2 with another epic encounter between Canada XI and Afghanistan XI. Winning the toss and batting first, the Afghanistan team seemed to be well in control and headed for a 150+ score before HIral Patel bowled a magnificant 20th over to hold the visitors to 140.

Afghanistan XI looked well on their to victory as Canada's top order again failed to click, save for Patel (33) who against made a positive start. It was left to Usman Limbada (24) and Hamza Tariq (33*) who wrestled the game away from the Afghani's. At 77-5, the two put on 45 runs in 4 overs to pull Canada back into the game. As Limbada departed, at 122 it was left to Tariq and Tyson Gordon (6*) to finish the game on the last ball. Tariq's 33 was in a mere 18 balls and earned him Man of the Match honours.

In the second match of the day, T&T put up 207-7 based largely on William Perkins (87) and Jason Mohammed (88). In reply the USA were unable to muster much of a reply and ended up their innings at 96-9
