Canada is going to participate in the T20 World Cup for the first time in its history. Despite having participated in the ODI World Cup four times, this is the first time the North American country will be seen in the short format of cricket.
Canada booked their ticket to the World Cup in 2024 after defeating Bermuda in a qualifying match on Sunday (October 8).
Canada scored 132 runs batting first in the Americas World Cup qualifying match at the National Stadium in Hamilton. They set this target in the last 4 wickets of the scheduled 20 overs. Opener Navneet Daliwal scored maximum 45 runs for the team.
In response to 133 runs, Bermuda was all out for just 93 runs. Canada’s successful bowler Kalim Sana bowled 3.5 overs and cost only 4 runs with 1 maiden. Bermuda can burn with regret by doubling the pain of loss. Because even with the same points as Bermuda, Canada gets the ticket to the World Cup as it leads in net run rate.
Also in the same group were Panama and the Cayman Islands. Although Canada is going to play the World Cup at the top of these countries. Before this, the team participated in the ODI World Cup four times. First World Cup played in 1979. Then the team was seen in the World Cup in 2003, 2007 and lastly in 2011.
The ninth edition of T20 World Cup will be held next year. The 2024 World Cup will be jointly organized by the West Indies and the United States with the participation of 20 teams. Canada will be seen there.
The ninth edition of the T20 World Cup will be held at a total of ten venues in the West Indies and the United States. Seven islands in the Caribbean and three venues in the United States will be held in this short version of the World Cup with the participation of 20 teams.
