The Ontario representatives had a good practice with some of the Senior Canadian Men’s team players. It was my first chance to see the young guys in person and I was really impressed.
One thing about this bunch is that they are not lacking in confidence. Even if they don’t win, there is enough talent in the group to put up a good fight.
The fitness level was good and there is some variety in the bowling with a few left arm spin bowling options. They leave on New Years Day and play their first warm up game on the 12th.
The full squad:
Rustam Bhatti (captain), Manny Aulakh, Parth Desai, Darius D’Souza, Ruvindu Gunasekara, Hardik Kotak, Nitish Kumar, Usman Limbada, Zain Mahmood, Asif Manjra, Hiral Patel, Riyazkhan Pathan, Arsalan Qadir, Harpreet Singh, Hamza Tariq.
