Canada cricket team to visit Trinidad

TORONTO, Canada,  CMC- Canada’s national cricket team is due to visit Trinidad and Tobago next weekend for a nine day tour.

The Canadians will arrive in Port of Spain next Friday to play a two-day game and a pair of one-day and Twenty/20 matches against the twin-island republic’s national side. Canada is using the short tour as part of its preparation for two international tournaments later this year.Trinidad and Tobago has also integrated the series in their preparations for next month’s West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Super50 and four-day tournaments.

“It will help us with our preparation for upcoming World Cricket League (WCL) and Intercontinental Cup matches in Dubai in March,” said Gus Logie, who is with the Canadian team for a second stint after coaching them at the 2003 World Cup in South Africa.

“It will also assist the Trinidadians to get ready for the West Indies Cricket Board’s four-day and Super 50 tournaments starting in the next three weeks and boost the relationship between the two countries.”

Canada’s place as a top flight Associate has been on shaky ground over the past two years.

They finished sixth out of seven teams in Group A at the 2011 World Cup, beating only Kenya.
