The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation will be showing a live stream of all four days of contests for Canada's tour of the USA this week, beginning with the two-day Auty Cup match starting on Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. EST at the Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, Fla. The coverage of matches between the USA and Canada follows up live video provided by Cricket Canada in 2011 during the Etihad Summer Cricket Festival contested by Canada, USA, Afghanistan and Trinidad & Tobago in Toronto. The stream can be found on www.cbcsports.ca.
Besides the two-day Auty Cup match, USA and Canada will play a 50-over match on Friday followed by two Twenty20 matches on Saturday. USA has selected a squad with seven players yet to make their senior team debuts for USA. Meanwhile, Canada has picked a 13-man squad captained by Rizwan Cheema that includes six other players who toured the UAE in March as part of Canada's squad at the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier.
The Auty Cup multi-day match was resumed in 2011 after a 16-year hiatus. Canada defeated an understrength USA squad by 34 runs in the two-day match in Toronto last summer as part of the Etihad Summer Cricket Festival. USA and Canada played the first ever international cricket match in New York in 1844 and the two countries share a lengthy history together.
Canada Squad for The Auty Cup tour November 14-17: Rizwan Cheema (captain), Khurram Chohan, Daesrath Damodar, Jeremy Gordon, Ruvindu Gunasekera, Jimmy Hansra, Usman Limbada, Henry Osinde, Hiral Patel, Raza-Ur-Rehman, Junaid Siddiqui, Hamza Tariq (wk), Srimantha Wijeratne.
