Canada hoping to make waves at World Cup


Even though Canada are ranked outsiders for next month’s World Cup in the Caribbean, coach Andy Pick believes his side are capable of pulling off an upset or two.

“I’m happy that if we play our best game we will put a lot of pressure on (Group C rivals) England and New Zealand because we have some good players,” the former Nottinghamshire bowler said.

The other side in the group are Kenya. “We are not focusing a huge amount on England or New Zealand, or Kenya for that matter,” said Pick. “The only thing we can possibly do and have a certain amount of control over is how we play,” he explained.

To qualify from the group would be a “massive, massive success”, said Pick. He added that Canada would take a lot of confidence from a recent win over Kenya in a tri-series tournament in Africa.

“Kenya is a big game for us and we would like to come out on top in that one,” said Pick. “If we lose the other two, so be it,” he added. Canada start their campaign against Kenya in St Lucia on March 14.
