Canada squad for the World Twenty20 Qualifier
Cricket Canada has named an experienced 15-man squad for next month's ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier. Ashish Bagai will captain the team as they attempt to qualify for the 2014 tournament in Bangladesh.
Bagai, Rizwan Cheema and Henry Osinde are among a clutch of 30-plus players, which also includes fast bowler Kenneth Kamyuka, who recently made his Canada debut four years after last playing for Uganda. Canada have not previously reached the World T20 but next year's expanded tournament means six teams from the Qualifier will progress.
The two-week qualifying competition will begin on November 15, with Canada in Group A alongside Ireland, UAE, USA, Namibia, Italy, Hong Kong and Uganda, the country where both Osinde and Kamyuka grew up. Canada have scheduled a ten-day training camp in Sri Lanka beforehand, with matches against local first-class sides as well as a game against Scotland.
