Default Oh Canada

They recently beat West Indies 'A' 2 out of 3 matches. We'll be lucky if we can beat them.

We will beat them. They are lower ranked (15) than Holland (13). Look at what we did to Holland in the Champions Trophy.

Default Tough luck

Holland always play their 2nd string team. Their 1st tier players are either allegedly wrecking havoc in the English leagues, or still dreaming from the side lines for a shot into the SA test side.

Default You will beat them

Bangladesh will beat Canada easily, Canada beat a WI A team without their best Batsman, and when the players where all mucking around and thinking of home (2 of the players have since been disciplined!). Canada got bowled out for 52 by Trinidad, when Merv Dillon was only bowling at half-pace. Trust me, having watched BD versus SA, you will have no problems.

Default Holland

Whoa, Holland had pretty much all their BEST players out there. Some of those same players used to whack us good only 6 years ago. It was surprising to see them fold so easily. Then again, half the Holland side do not get more than 3-6 decent games a year (pretty much where most of ours are).

As for Canada, this will be their big show and they will play without ANY (and I do mean ANY compared to ours) pressure. Bangladesh vs Canada will be more like West Indies vs Kenya and we all saw what happened there. With our players still trying to find their form back (thank god we have some tours lined up and the players will be fresh out of the national league and what not) Canada has the upper hand.

By the way, we will be facing a WORLD ELEVEN in CANADA. *wink*
