Another dark day for Canada

The infighting within Canadian cricket was again in evidence on the day the Ontario Cricket Association began legal action against Cricket Canada over team selection.

The infighting within Canadian cricket was again in evidence on the day the Ontario Cricket Association began legal action against Cricket Canada over team selection.

The Interprovincial tournament match between Ontario and Manitoba was switched at short notice from Malton to Inverhaugh after officials ruled the original venue was unplayable.

However, another game between Alberta and Quebec not far away from Malton was able to proceed with no difficulties, so why the issues with the original venue?

An eyewitness told Cricinfo the reasons might have more to do with a planned protest at Malton where Ontario CA members were preparing to demonstrate. They were left bemused when the last-gasp venue change was made.
