A little game for you. Name the home grown Caucasian Canadians from that squad. This is what is wrong with cricket today. Not sufficient effort is being made by the games custodians to entice home grown men and women to play this great sport. Many European National sides are also top heavy with players from Sub Continental backgrounds.


This Canadian team isn't white enough for you Baggy? That seems just a tad racist to me.

Caucasian Canadians are probably far more interested in playing baseball than cricket and have dreams of playing in the MLB. Either way, winter's gridiron and summer's baseball take a back seat in Canadian mainstream importance to their winter national sport of Ice Hockey. This is a under 19 team event, are you suggesting that these kids are not home grown talent to play for Canada?

Sub continentals love cricket. Sub Continentals are good at cricket. Sub continentals have migrated. Sub continentals are bringing and furthering cricket with them to places they migrate to. I think you best learn to deal with it or start following a different sport. Ice Hockey is good if you only enjoy watching white people play sport.

Akash Gill - born Ontario

Arslan Khan - born Ontario

Aran Pathmanathan - born Ontario

Rishiv Joshi - born Ontario

Faisal Jamkhandi - born Ontario

Some foreign births - migration dates unknown:

Kavian Naress - born Germany (at one time a proud Caucasian nation if there was ever)

and finally -

Rommel Shahzad - born Karachi

I'd be more concerned with the Ontario dominance in selection if I was a Canadian cricket fan. Time to grow it in the rest of the states.

If USA Cricket is to ever grow again to being internationally competitive, like Canada is already seeking to do, I'd wager it is much through the efforts of sub-continental migrants to develop a club, domestic and ultimately a national structure of cricket teams and players to get it humming. Significant West Indian migrant flavour too. Even if they then subsequently get overrun with a lot of failed mainstream American MLB aspirants now seeking to further their opportunities as professional sportsmen and seek ways to utilize their existing skills in cricket as both fast bowlers and power batting hitters who seek to earn t20 franchise wages.

Aussies 370..PNG 59. Just a lazy 300+ run victory. Aussie side will not win the WC. I am tipping India or England. Kiwis with a show too.

Havn't seen England play - but India look strong. Safrica v NZ will reveal more who their main threat is. Afg have already caused a big upset.

No not racist Paddles disappointed. I had no doubt some of them are Canadian born. Yes most caucasian Canadians do aspire to a NRL or hockey career. That is my point..the game's custodians ICC or MCC should be encouraging the white Canadian or European player to pursue cricket over more traditional sports.

I'm sure they do within their budgetary confines. But you can't help who wants to play regardless (nor who is the best).

You're going to see even more sub - continental origin players in the NZ team in the future. They far outweigh the club players proportionate to national population. And they will continue to appear in Eng and SA teams, maybe even in an increasing rate.

This is posted mainly for Bolero's benefit as he seems to be fond of Indo-origin cricketing success stories globally.

For those not aware, Rachin Ravindra had been touted as NZ's next KW. But he broke a lot of hearts 2 years ago when he largely failed in the U19 WC.

However, this WC, he is starring with both bat and ball for NZ. His dad is a former team mate and still good friend of Javagal Srinath, who is so into helping his son develop his game, he started a cricket club and has them tour India on playing holidays.
