The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced the amended dates for the fifth round fixtures of the Pepsi ICC World Cricket League (WCL) Championship and the ICC Intercontinental Cup 2011-2013 between Kenya and Canada.

Initially scheduled to commence on 14 March, the fixtures have been moved forward to accommodate logistical and scheduling requirements of the two teams, and will feature two ICC WCL Championship ODIs (11 and 13 March) and one ICC Intercontinental Cup four-day encounter (18-21 March). All matches will be played at the ICC Global Cricket Academy in Dubai. 

Kenya is currently sixth in the ICC WCL Championship, leading eight-placed Canada by three points. The WCL Championship provides a direct qualification pathway for Associate and Affiliate Members to the ICC Cricket World Cup (CWC) 2015, which will be staged in Australia and New Zealand. The top two teams in the WCL Championship will automatically join the ICC's 10 Full Members at the ICC CWC 2015, while the final two qualifiers will be determined at the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier in early 2014.

In the ICC Intercontinental Cup, Kenya leads Canada by one position, in seventh spot.

Other fifth round fixtures for the two events, featuring the top eight Associate and Affiliate Members, are also scheduled for March and April 2013.

From 3 March, a battle for second place in the Intercontinental Cup will take place between Afghanistan and Scotland in the UAE, while WCL Championship leader Ireland takes on fourth-placed UAE a week later. Namibia will host the Netherlands from 11 April 2013 in Windhoek

The upcoming fixtures are as follows

ICC World Cricket League (WCL)

The WCL – including the Championship and the ongoing global divisions – is an important event structure on the calendar of the Pepsi ICC Development Programme, as it provides a dual pathway for Associate and Affiliate Members to qualify for the ICC Cricket World Cup (CWC) 2015, to be staged in Australia and New Zealand.

The top two teams from the WCL Championship will automatically join the ICC's 10 Full Members at the ICC CWC 2015. The bottom six teams then join teams from WCL Divisions 2 and 3 in the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier in early 2014, where the final two qualifiers will be determined.

ICC Intercontinental Cup

The ICC Intercontinental Cup has quickly grown in stature and profile since its inception eight years ago. The ICC's premier first-class tournament is an integral part of the Associate Members' cricket schedule.

There will be a total of US$254,000 in prize money for the Associate and Affiliate teams taking part in the ICC Intercontinental Cup 2011-13, with US$100,000 for the winners and US$40,000 for the runners-up.

Teams finishing in third and fourth place will receive US$20,000 and US$10,000 respectively, while an outright win by any team during the course of the round-robin stage will see it walk away with US$3,000 per match.

Having previously been designed around a two-group, three-day format, the event then evolved into an eight-team, round-robin and truly global tournament featuring four-day cricket. This gives those teams who do not play Test cricket the chance to experience the longer form of the game.

This year's format includes eight teams - Afghanistan, Canada, Ireland, Kenya, Namibia, Netherlands, Scotland and United Arab Emirates.

Scotland won the first ICC Intercontinental Cup in 2004, beating Canada in the final, while Ireland has been victorious in three events since then, beating Kenya in the 2005 decider, Canada in the 2006-07 event, and Namibia in 2007-08 event. In 2009-10, Afghanistan won the competition and Scotland finished second on the points table.

Canada staged a much improved batting peformance on their final day in T&T in the lone 50 over match of the tour on Saturday. Winning the toss and batting first, Hiral Patel hit stride with 63 ball 58 putting on 69 runs with Ruvindu Gunasekera (12) for the opening wicket. Low double digit contributions from the middle order stalled Canada's progress but the lower order (Tariq - 31, Cheema 18, Siddiqui - 17) took Canada past the 200 mark.

In reply, T&T set about the target with fervour Lendl Simmons (41) and Evan Lewis (87) set T&T's platform before both falling to Nikhil Dutta (3-37). Dutta and Damodar Deasarath (2-40) were Canada's wicket takers and Trinidad got over the target with 10 overs to spare. Dutta's bowling peformance coupled with Patel striking with the bat highlighted some key positives coming out of the tour and set the stage for future tours.

Canada is next slated to play in the World Cup Qualification series against Kenya in March in Dubai.

Trinidad and Tobago lived up to their billing as the Caribbean's top side on Thursday winning comfortably over Canada. Batting first, RedForce proved they came to play in  round 1 of the Howzatt SuperLeague amassing a massive 182-2 from 20 overs.  Denesh Ramdin top scored for T&T with an unbeaten 64 from 34 balls. Evan Kewis (50) and Kjorn Ottley (48*) joined in on the assault in an entertaining 50 overs. Only Jeremy Gordon and Junaid Siddiqui picked up wickets for Canada.

In reply, Canada started positively before the wheels came off. 17 runs came off the first two overs and it was game on but Canada was unable to find the boundary nor stymie the onslaught from T&T's bowling attack, ultimately succumbing for 97-7 in 20 overs.

The HOWZATT Super League T20 got off to a flier on Wednesday at Guaracarra Park in Trinidad. Canada's bats that struggled in the 3-day match came to life against the Caribbean T20 champions and Champion's League participants. Batting first, skipper Rizwan Cheema hit form with a swashbuckling 44 from 30 balls including 2 sixes. Cheema and Ruvindu Gunasekera (20) se tthe table and then Jimmy Hansra (40* 2 x 4s, 2 x 6s) and Damodar Daesrath (23 off 17) took Canada to their highest ever T20 total against T&T.

T&T went after the tricky target with some fervour and reached the target in the 16th over with Evin Lewis (53*) and Kjorn Ottley (61*) doing the damage for the hosts.

Match 2 of the Howzatt SuperLeague T20 goes Thursday also from Guaracarra Park

T&T continued their fine form in the 3-day match dismissing Canada for 191 on day 3 to win comfortably by an innings and 130 runs. Despite a great start from Canada's openers, only Hamza Tariq (31) and Junaid Siddiqui (24) were able to stage meaningful resistance but the target was just too much to ask.

Amit Jaggernauth was too much to handle for the Canadians picking up 6 wickets in the innings.

Canada fought its way to 99-4 in reply to T&T's massive total of 456-7 on day 2 of the 3 day match at NCC in T&T. After getting to 196-3 at close of play, T&T batted on led by Jason Mohammed (112).  Junaid Siddiqui was the pick of Canada's bowlers at 3-94. 

Ruvindu Gunasekera (44) and Hiral Patel (32) got Canada off to the start that the would have wanted chasing a massive target but their departure coinciding with the loss of Hansra and Limbada cheaply have left Canada much to do to save the match.

Sun, 02/03/2013

Junaid Siddiqui put on a brave showing for Canada scoring 34 at the bottom of the order and taking two wickets but played a lone hand as Canada's batsmen struggled after winning the toss and batting first at the National Cricket Centre. 

In Canada's first match of the tour, a 3-Dayer against a strong T&T side, skipper Jimmy Hansra backed his men to get off to a good start but  that was not to happen on a firm and easy paced pitch. Hiral Patel (17) fell to a yorker while Ruvindu Gunasekera (19) was caught hooking in the deep. Usman Limbada fell quickly at 3 while the captain departed shortly after leaving Canada sagging early on. Nitish Kumar  (22) attempted to stymie the rot but edged one to slip starting another mini collapse. Siddiqui and Hamza Tariq pulled Canada to a measure of respectability but it there was not much else in the offing as Canada were wrapped up in under 4 hours. 

In reply the hosts moved comfortably into the lead and ended the day at 194-3 after an Evan Lewis century. Jason Mohammed (25*) and captain Dinish Ramdin (1*) will resume for T&T in the morning.
