Canada prepare to leave for England
Canada will head to England on Tuesday to prepare for the ICC Intercontinental Cup Final against Ireland, at Grace Road, Leicester. The four-day match starts on May 22. The Canadians, many of whom have not played for nearly two months since their last World Cup match on March 22, will have a warm-up against an England select XI at Loughborough Town. That two-day game takes place on Thursday and Friday this week.
In Canada itself, the domestic cricket season started on May 12 for two of the leagues in Greater Toronto. Premier Divisions of both the Etobicoke and District League, and the Canadian Commonwealth Cricket Association of Toronto had their first matches, but the largest league kicks off this Saturday.
The Toronto and District Cricket Association gets underway this week, while players in the Scarborough Cricket Association will have to wait for their first matches on May 26.
- The City of Toronto's exhibition "A view from the Pavilion: South Asian Contributions to the World of Cricket" is at Toronto City Hall this week. Later it will move to Etobicoke Civic Centre (June 4-6), North York Civic Centre (June 11-13) and finally Scarborough Civic Centre (June 18-22).
