Canada slump to another heavy defeat

Martin Williamson

The Trinidad & Tobago Development XI thrashed Canada's women by 151 runs at the National Cricket Centre. The home side eased to 203 for 7, with Amanda Samaroo (60) and Jerveena Pollocksingh (49) leading the way. Canada were as good as down and out as they limped to 6 for 4, and although they extended their innings to the 33rd over they only scraped 52.

For any team(cricket or any other sport), there is always a start and for most, the beginning would be tough. By just giving it up, nothing is achieved. They should try to improve and I believe, with dedication, they sure can.

I don't think Canada needs a women team now,. it's just waste of money, they should start building a proper men team than women team.

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
