Cecil Marshall, the former Canada allrounder, who represented the side in the 1979 World Cup died on Saturday aged 71. His performances in the 1979 ICC Trophy helped Canada qualify for the World Cup. His personal highlight in the qualification campaign was against Malaysia, when he top scored with 77 in a match where no one else made a half-century, before taking 3 for 16. After his Canada career, he played cricket and umpired in Ottawa.
