Canada XI continued its winning ways by defeating Police Barbados RPTeam by 209 runs. Scores in the match were Canada XI 338/3 and Police Barbados RPTeam 129.

After losing the toss and sent in to bat, Canada found itself in a bit of bother after losing both openers cheaply. A partnership of 105 between Dhaliwal and Soraine brought some respectability back to the score before Soraine was forced to retire. Sehdev then joined Dhaliwal and the pair put on a 100 runs partnership before Sehdev was caught behind for 32 in the 43rd over. In the mean time, Dhaliwal who was stroking the ball nicely, combined finesse with occasional power to bring up his 100 in 111 balls in the 42nd over.

Cheema and Dhaliwal came together at 216/ in the 43rd over, the pair bludgeoned the ball to all parts of the field to add 122 runs in the final 7 overs. Dhaliwal ended up with 176 off 137 balls while Cheema was unbeaten on 54 from 20 balls (his 50 came off 16 balls).

When Police Barbados RPTeam batted, Montfort and Junaid opened the bowling and both stuck early to leave the team 17/2. Police Barbados RPTeam lost wickets consistently and were 61/5 before they had a bit of recovery with a 63 runs partnership between Persad and Sargeant. 

Junaid was the pick of the Canada bowlers as he bowled his leg spin with guile to end with three (3) wickets. Coming back for his second spell he was able to have Persad to break the developing partnership. Dhindsa also ended up with three (3) wickets as he bowled with control and pace.  

Scores: Canada 338/3 (N Dhaliwal 176, D Soraine 54 (RH), R Cheema 54*, R Padmore 2-19); Police Barbados RPTeam 129 all out (R Persad 43, J Siddiqui 3-22, S Dhindsa 3-28, s Zafar 2-15)

Game 1

After spending most of the Winter  preparing indoors, Canadian cricketers had a chance to take their training and preparation outdoors with a five match tour to Barbados. Missing a few players due to work and university commitments, a fifteen member Canada squad left for Barbados on March 30th for some much needed match practice. Canada's tour is all part of its groundwork as they strive to win the upcoming ICC WCL Division 3 which will be held in Uganda from May 21 - 31, 2017.

In the team's first game, the Canada XI beat St. Catherine by 216 runs. Canada XI batting first scored 396/7 before bowling out St. Catherine for 180 in 41.4 overs.

Canada's inning got off to a shaky start at 1-1 before a second wicket stand of 89 between Bhavindu Adhihetty (49) and Navneet Dhaliwal (75). Once they lost the 2nd wicket at 90, Canada XI quickly found itself in a bit of trouble at 111/4. At this point Rizwan Cheema joined Dhaliwal and the pair put on 260 runs for the 5th wicket.  Cheema who started a bit cautiously, displayed some  amazing  stroke play while scoring 172 in 84 balls including fourteen (14) sixes (6s) and eleven (11) fours (4s). He also shared a 60 runs 6th wicket partnership with Saad Zafar.

Set a huge victory target, the St. Catherine's innings never really got any momentum as they lost wickets consistently. There were good contributions from Puckerin 57 and Batson 38. For the Canada XI, Pervez & Dutta had 3 wickets each, Khalid 2 and 1 wicket each to Siddiqui and Zafar.

Summarized scores Canada 396/7 (Cheema 172, Dhaliwal 75, Zafar 49*, Adhihetty 49, Grenidge 2 - 62, Skeete 2 - 76); St. Catherine 180 all out (Puckerin 57, Batson 38, Pervez 3 - 32, Dutta 3, 33, Khalid 2 - 32)

Game 2 will be played on April 3, 2017 against the Police Sports Club.

Dear members of the Cricket Canada community;

Cricket Canada today announced that it will be reviewing their legal options regarding the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada’s (SDRCC) findings in the matter pertaining to the election of their Board of Directors last May 2016.

We are surprised by the SDRCC decision as we can see no legal evidence for the panel’s decision.

In the spirit of transparency and full disclosure, we are sharing the orders from the SDRCC. They are as follows:

·         New elections for all positions on the Cricket Canada Board of Directors, including the position of President, shall be held as soon as practicable;

·         The elections shall be open to the general public and conducted in a fair manner;

·         The details of the elections and of the election process shall be announced well in advance of the elections by means of the Cricket Canada website, Facebook, Twitter and/or other social media or other means;

·         Mr. Azhar Khan shall be recognized as the President of the Saskatchewan Cricket Association with respect to the elections unless his presidency ends before that time;

·         Any person having a role in the selection of the members of the Nomination Committee shall be prohibited from running in the elections;

·         Any Provincial Director, or any other person with voting rights by virtue of their position, who intends to run in the elections must resign from his or her position before the elections are held;

·         Considering the parties have indicated that new elections must be held before June 30, 2017, a period of only three months or less from the date of this award, the members of the Board of Directors who were elected on May 19, 2016 will be permitted to remain in place and fulfill their functions until the holding of the new elections;

·         All necessary amendments to the bylaws shall be made to meet complete compliance with the Not-for-profit Corporations Act and with the findings of this award;

·         Any offer, suggestion or promise of a benefit by a person running in the elections to a voter is prohibited.

While it is reviewing its legal options, Cricket Canada will respect the SDRCC decision and will begin to investigate how best to proceed with a new election of the organization’s Board of Directors. More information will be shared with Cricket Canada’s membership as the Board receives information. For more information, please contact Ranjit Saini by email


Yours sincerely,

Ranjit Saini, President of Cricket Canada
