CANADA SQUAD FOR CT20

NEW LOOK SQUAD FOR 2012
December 17, 2011

CRICKET CANADA is pleased to announce the following squad that will take part in the 2012 Caribbean T20 tournament in Antigua and Barbados January 9-23rd, 2012. 

Jimmy Hansra will skipper a side that turned many heads at the 2011 event with a stunning upset of ECB T20 champions Hampshire in the opener and losing a nail-biter to eventual champions Trinidad and Tobago on the last ball. The team has just returned from a tough tour of Barbados where they were slow to gain steam but posed stiff competition for the hosts knocking them off in the penultimate match of the tour.

Rizwan Cheema (PCB, TDCA) – Vice Captain
