Haha nice catch. But the use of J instead of Z indicates it's not the big Z that Siddons was so fond of.

These expats teams are a joke, I hope ICC makes some rules about minimum native ethnic presence in a team, hell even China has a cricket team full of ethnic Chinese.

Rooting for Nepal and Canada (closest thing to USA, lol). Wouldn't mind seeing Namibia or Kenya go through either.

Can't stand fake teams like Hong Kong, Oman, and UAE.

Oman has come from 5th division to maybe 1st division like Afghanistan,its a real cinderella story.
Going for Canada.
The other teams including Canada,meh have been around the fringes a long time without really achieving anything.
Except the glorious years of early Kenya,but they are truely over.

The only difference is that they poached players from SC whereas Afghanistan had homegrown players

why does the Canadian team has more cricket credentials than US? I mean US is also full of desi expats, With Canada being a winter frost-land most of the times I thought US would have been the team from north america

kenya is the failure case from ICC. We lost a 2nd tier cricketing nation because of ICC. We could have had 13 test teams now in cricket

US cricket has issues with governance and politics. I doubt they are picking their best side. With all the cricket leagues in NYC, Bay Area, Houston, DC Metro, and Chicago I struggle to see how they are consistently behind Canada - which is essentially just GTA and maybe Vancouver.

USA hasn't even qualified for the WC Qualifier this century, IIRC. Last time was in the 1997 ICC Trophy.

He is originally from Pakistan. I went to University with him and he was our University cricket team Captain. I remember him hitting six in indoor cricket @ Brock University.

Although he is selected for his bowling, he is also a decent batsman.

Even though all these names sound like expat but the reality is most of the Canadian team members developed their cricket skills in Canada. They moved to Canada when they were either under 10 years old or teenagers. The captain of the Canadian team, in fact, was born in Canada.

Similar case is with Hong Kong too. Most of their players are actually home-grown unlike Oman, UAE etc

Nepal's population is bigger than Sri Lanka and cricket is their most popular team sport. It's the only country left that has the factors in place to gain full membership. For the sake of cricket, we should all root for Nepal.

ICC somehow is interested in having expat filled teams that's why they have even revised the laws and limit the residency requirement 3 years than 4

I never thought of it that way, but yes. They should make a push.
