Twenty20 competition in Canada a success
Canada’s first Twenty20 version of the national championships has been deemed a success despite unseasonably cold and wet conditions. Cricket Canada said they were “certain” to repeat the format in the future, after the final was even covered on Rogers, a local television channel.
Ontario B defeated Quebec by 16 runs in a final reduced to 15 overs by rain.
Eight teams played out a total of 12 matches in two days with British Columbia, Quebec, Ontario A and Ontario B reaching the last four. The semis were five overs, also because of the rain.
