The unprecedented success of the Canadian athletes in the Sochi Winter Olympics is matter of pride for all Canadians, irrespective of the sport you play or support. The raising of the Canadian flag and the playing of the Canadian National Anthem, generates a sense of belonging, excitement, exuberance with all of us holding our heads very high. Many of us Cricket lovers come from countries where sight of snow is a rare phenomenon, also find ourselves riding the roller coaster of emotion equally with the snow loving rest.
With the loss to Scotland, Canada is effectively out of further play in the World Cup 2014. This is and should be a matter of grave concern to all Cricket loving fans and players in this country. We have witnessed a continuous slide of the standard of the game in Canada for some time now. This seemingly downward spiral of lack of success internationally, is further aided by the rise of new powers in the Associate World of countries like Ireland, Afghanistan, Hong Kong etc.,
