Global T20 Canada 2019: Complete squads of all five teams

By Himanshu Sharma @boringcricket

Global T20 Canada 2019 commences from 25 July with five teams promising an enticing cricket. The squads for the second edition have been finalised. The second season gets underway with defending champions Vancouver Knights squaring off against Toronto Nationals.

“Canada cannot wait for the action to begin. We at Cricket Canada are committed to providing much-needed opportunity and exposure to our Canadian players. We will work alongside the GT20 team to make the 2019 edition even more memorable for the players and fans. On behalf of Cricket Canada, I invite the cricket world to Canada,” Mr. Ranjit Saini, President of Cricket Canada

“I was there to see the first edition of the league and was enormously impressed with the overall quality of cricket. Despite a few hiccups, Cricket Canada and GT20 team delivered an outstanding event. The hallmark of the event was a local boy Saad Bin Zafar winning the Man of the Match in the all-important finals in the presence of stars like Chris Gayle and Andre Russell. It proves that cricketers from these countries need these kinds of endeavors to prove their talent. I hope GT20 season two will take cricket to greater heights in the North America region,” Brian Lara, the brand ambassador of Global T20 Canada
