Canada Set for Kenya Clash

 

Fri, 02/15/2013

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

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.

Basil Robinson, a brisk offspinner who played for Oxford University and went on to captain Canada, has died at his home in Ottawa at the age of 93.

Robinson was a prolific allround sportsman at the University of British Columbia – in 1936 he scored 1533 runs and took 186 wickets for Vancouver Junior CC – and in 1939 was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford but because of the war he was unable to take this up until 1946 by which time he was 27.

While at Oxford he played football, rugby and cricket, becoming the first Canadian to be awarded his Blue in 1947 and 1948. He did little in his second appearance at Lord’s but in 1947 he took 4 for 54 in a drawn match.

He enjoyed success with the ball in both seasons, taking 50 wickets for the university at 27.74; his best bowling came against Worcestershire in 1947 when he took 6 for 55 as the students beat the county by 169 runs. His only first-class half-century came when he scored 51 on his debut against Lancashire.

On leaving Oxford he returned to Canada where he rejoined the Department of External Affairs but he continued to be an active cricketer. In 1954 he captained the Canadian squad which toured England playing a number of first-class games.

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka -- Virat Kohli scored a half-century while Lakshmipathy Balaji and Yuvraj Singh combined for six wickets to propel India to a 23-run win against Afghanistan at the World Twenty20 on Wednesday.
 
The lowly ranked Afghans, who reached the tournament through qualifying, put up a challenge in patches against one of the favourites to win the trophy. However, their inexperience meant they couldn't sustain the pressure in the Group A match.
 
Afghanistan captain Nawroz Mangal won the toss and sent in India, which made 159-5 in 20 overs. Kohli hit two sixes and four boundaries for 50 off 39 balls. He shared a 46-run stand with Suresh Raina after the Afghans had reduced India to 68-3.
 
In reply, Afghanistan was bowled out for 136 runs in the final over. Mohammad Nabi top-scored with 31. Balaji claimed 3-19 while Yuvraj took 3-24.

ICC MEDIA RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dubai, 13 August 2012

Six players have been nominated in three different categories for the LG ICC Awards 2012, Pakistan’s Saeed Ajmal, South Africa’s Hashim Amla, Australia captain Michael Clarke, Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara, England’s Alastair Cook and West Indies Stafanie Taylor.

The six players all feature in the ICC Cricketer of the Year, the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy, long list, while the male nominees are all nominated in both the ICC Test Cricketer of the Year and ICC Men’s  ODI Cricketer of the Year long lists, Taylor on the other hand features in the ICC Women’s ODI Cricketer of the Year and ICC Women’s T20I Cricketer of the Year long lists.

It is the first year the men’s and women’s voting academy and awards have become fully integrated, and Taylor becomes the first female to be long-listed for the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy at the ninth annual LG ICC Awards which will be held on 15 September in Colombo ahead of the ICC World Twenty20 Sri Lanka 2012. 

This year’s LG ICC Awards includes 11 individual prizes and also features the selection of the Test and ODI Teams of the Year.

For the third time, this year’s awards feature the category, the LG People’s Choice Award. This award will be chosen by cricket fans around the world who will get a chance to vote for their favourite player online from a short-list of five cricketers.

Those five cricketers – Kumar Sangakkara, Sachin Tendulkar, Vernon Philander, Jacques Kallis and James Anderson - who were selected by the ICC selection panel and released to the public for voting earlier this month, were chosen on the basis of some innovative parameters, in line with the values that embody the LG brand, such as innovation, dynamism, strength in decision-making, performing well under pressure and executing a plan to distinction.

Cricket fans currently have the opportunity to vote for the cricketer of their choice online until 31 August at www.facebook.com/cricketicc.

“The LG ICC Awards presents a wonderful opportunity for the ICC, along with thousands of cricket fans, to acknowledge and reward the brilliant performances of the world’s best cricketers,” said ICC Chief Executive David Richardson.

“It is also a chance to look back on some of the great feats witnessed in the past year in international cricket across FTP Test and ODI series, numerous Associate and Affiliate Member fixtures, including the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier 2012 plus the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier in 2011. This will be the ninth edition of the Awards and once again the voting academy will face a tough task in deciding who will be victorious on the night,” he added.

The long-lists of nominations were made by a five-man ICC selection panel chaired by former West Indies captain and current chairman of the ICC Cricket Committee Clive Lloyd. The panel also includes former international players Clare Connor of England, Tom Moody of Australia, Carl Hooper of West Indies and Sri Lanka’s Marvan Atapattu. 

The individual player awards will be selected by an academy of 32 highly credentialed cricket personalities from around the world. The academy includes a host of former players and respected members of the media, representatives of the Emirates Elite Panels of ICC Umpires and ICC Match Referees.

This year sees the integration of the selection and voting panels for the women’s awards and sees the creation of two women’s awards, ICC Women’s ODI Cricketer of the Year and ICC Women’s T20I Cricketer of the Year.

There are 11 nominees for the ICC Men’s Twenty20 International Performance of the Year include players from the men’s teams of England, West Indies, South Africa, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

The ICC Spirit of Cricket Award Long List was nominated by all members of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires and Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees, while this award is ultimately voted upon by the 10 Full Member captains, along with the Elite Panel umpires and match referees.

This year’s five nominees for the Spirit of Cricket Award are nominated due to: “An action, moment, gesture or decision on the field of play of International cricket during the specified voting period which best reflects the Spirit of Cricket”.

The nominees include South Africa’s Jacques Kallis and AB de Villiers, Pakistan’s Mohammad Hafeez, West Indies’ Kieron Pollard and New Zealand’s Daniel Vettori. Information on why each of these players were nominated can be found here on the ICC website.

The David Shepherd Trophy for ICC Umpire of the Year is voted on by the captains and the match referees based on the umpires’ performance statistics.

There is also an ICC Emerging Cricketer of the Year award again this year. To qualify for that award a player must be under the age of 26 and have played fewer than five Tests and/or 10 ODIs and five T20Is at the start of the voting period.

The ICC Associate and Affiliate Cricketer of the Year award serves to recognise and reward the efforts in all international matches of the outstanding cricketers from the teams outside the ICC Full Members. This year, Ireland boasts the most number of nominees once again, this time with six names on the list, while Netherlands, Afghanistan, UAE and Canada have one each.

Based on the period between 4 August 2011 and 6 August 2012, the LG ICC Awards 2012 will take into account performances by players and officials in a remarkable period for the game.

That period includes such high-profile events as the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier 2012 held in the UAE, the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier in Bangladesh in 2011, various rounds of the ICC Intercontinental Cup, as well as numerous Pepsi ICC World Cricket League and Championship fixtures, plus several bilateral Test and ODI series.

The LG ICC Awards ceremony is now in its ninth year and this year it will be held in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Previous ceremonies were held in London (2004 and 2011), Sydney (2005), Mumbai (2006), Johannesburg (2007 and 2009), Dubai (2008) and Bengaluru (2010).

After not a ball was bowled in the 4-day Intercontinental Cup match, and the first one-day international, play finally took place in Canada’s final match of the tour of Scotland.

Canada made a steady start with Gunasekera striking a couple of boundaries. Patel was struggling however and when he was leg before to Evans he had made 3 from 22 balls – 26/1 in the 9th over. Kumar helped Gunasekera put up the fifty before being caught behind for 9. Gunasekera made 53 from 75 balls before being stumped. Daesrath made a useful 24 as part of a 47 run partnership with Zeeshan Siddiqi. The score at that point was 134/3 with 12 overs remaining, but Canada only added another 43 runs. Zeeshan Siddiqi made 43 before hitting his own wicket, and two run outs finished off the innings in the last over for 176.

Jeremy Gordon dismissed the dangerous Kyle Coetzer with his second delivery, when Coetzer cut him straight to point. Calum Macleod however treated some friendly opening bowling with little respect, and the score mounted rapidly with the fifty coming up in the 9th over. The spinners slowed the scoring rate somewhat but the Scots comfortably progressed towards the modest target with Macleod reaching his fifty in the 15th over. Soraine bowled Davie when he returned to the attack, then Patel bowled Goudie. Soraine took a second wicket – 2/52 from his 10 overs. 23 year-old Macleod made a career best 99* as Scotland won by 4 wickets with 8 overs in hand.
