    I completely agree with Agar and Harry on this. My dear Mr. Menon, I do not think Cricket was ever the national game of Canada.

    I agree with Anil,ICC should restrict a country with limited immigrant players.Almost all the players are born in India or Pakistan, which is unfair to other associate countries like Kenya,Namibia or Denmark who has good local talent pool.There is a danger that cricket will be marginalised among the locals as an immigrant sport which once used to be a national game of Canada.

    i think Canada getting up there with now players playing cricket for living which is good sign for Canadian cricket, but there is still quite a way to go

    Anil, I dont think you are familiar with Canadian cricket or Canada. When you say fielding players from the outside, I am guessing you say that because the names sound Indian, Pakistani or West Indian. This is only because Canada is a land of immigrants and every player on the Canadian team is first and foremost a Canadian.

    ICC is wasting its money in promoting cricket in a country like canada. Canada should not be allowed to particate in any ICC tournament. Any country can field a team with players from outside. There is hardly any localite in canada, instead it should give chance to countries like namibia, uganda, nepal, kenya and other countries. The game will never progress if countries like canada and UAE play cricket with hired players. Sheer waste in the name of popularisaton.
