Global T20 Canada to be held in Malaysia


    After its third season was postponed last year, the Global T20 Canada cricket tournament will resume in June/July 2021 in Malaysia.

    The tournament, which featured several West Indians over its first two seasons, took an unplanned hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

    According to the league, Malaysian Cricket’s Kinrara Oval will play host to six teams for 22 matches in 18 days.

    The organizers say mitigating the spread of COVID-19 will be a top priority at all times.

    GT20’s first season was played in 2018 in Canada and was won by Chris Gayle’s Vancouver Knights who beat a West Indies B team in the final.

    West Indians starred – Lendl Simmons was Player of the Series after scoring 321 runs and Sheldon Cottrell led the wicket-taking with 16 scalps.

    In 2019, the tournament was again hosted by Canada and was won by a Winnipeg Hawks team led by Rayad Emrit and featuring Dwayne Bravo.
