    It will be interesting to see how Argentina go for the remainder of the tournament, They are one country where of hear good things about the improvement of cricket infrastructure there. It is good to see them in comparison to some of the major associates.

    The Canadian team has faltered too many times in recent memory for it all to be a coincidence. It seems obvious to me that the coaching staff is not up to par as are most of their recent matches. Isn't it time Canada Cricket see a new direction and attitude toward winning? They have a good side in terms of talent just not the right attitude. They are lacking in confidence and overall mental strength. I think these need to be adjusted by a change in the coaching or at least additional staff that will supply strength to areas where the current coaching staff is lacking. The competition from other minnows is catching up and Canada has not advanced its own position for the last seven years. They have continued to languish along side Bermuda at the bottom of the top six associates. It is time to pick it up Canada.
