Cricket Thread: Aus v Canada


Written by Richard Ferguson (Richard Ferguson)

Tagged with : , ,

South Africa did the job yesterday, after a somewhat sleepy start (pun intended) by our top order, the middle order was lead by JP Duminy to set up a defendable target and beat the Irish quite comprehensively in the end.

Today we see another minnow team that can only really be described as being sent to slaughter as Canada face the mighty and unbeaten Australian team, who last lost a World Cup game in 1999 and have stretched their unbeaten run to 33 games.
