Default Canada V England

Has anyone felt the excitement building up amongst Canadians as they savour the prospect of Canada meeting England in the Cricket World Cup on March 18th? Me neither! But it's all true because this great cricketing nation called Canada will be playing the minnows England on that day and I'm having to decide who I'll be supporting. It's going to be a tough decision but as Canada winds itself up to fever pitch excitement over the event I'll be hoping that Canada stuffs England because that would be so cool. Imagine the street parties, the party atmosphere everywhere!

Now, where can I find a replica Canadian cricket shirt for the day? It's going to have to be a hockey shirt, isn't it?

Personally, I'm more looking forward to the U20 World Cup which kicks off in early July here in Canuckistan. I hear the England team didn't qualify?

Canada reached the semi-final in 1995 I believe, maybe history will repeat itself?

England beware, Canada (well, the Canadian skipper) actually hold the record for the fastest WC century, 111 from 76 (100 in 67) balls vs the West Indies....








...They also hold the record for the lowest score too... 35 all out.


Anything could happen!
