    Manpreet Gony's 4 overs goes for 51 runs...then comes in at #8 and smashed 33 off 12 balls to take his team close to the target...gets man of the match...savage level

    Hey mate thought of you yesterday. Lamichhane was playing yesterdayt and a bunch of a Nepali fans were going bonkers. Seems like a good solid talent. Can’t wait for Nepal to make it on the world stage. Have a good chat with JeremyGordon, local Toronto boy and he was lamenting how the selectors won’t pick him for the national team. He’s of Caribbean descent and I wouldn’t be surprised if the selectors have a south Asian bias.

    Nepal already have ODI status, just ****ed up in the WT20 qualifying stages and so won't be there in the main qualifiers in December. HK will be tho, as will Singapore, who beat Nepal to take their spot. Plus Nepal's cricket board is suspended by the ICC.

    Lamichhane of course came to prominence during the HK T20 Blitz - first time he ever got signed for a franchise T20 comp. Everyone else has since taken our lead.

    IDK how the selection politics works with Cricket Canada. I hear there is some lawsuit in place because someone feels some member of their staff took money to get their kid into some pathways program and then never did it.

    A player protest at the Global T20 Canada on Wednesday delayed a second round match between Toronto Nationals and Montreal Tigers by two hours. Both sides initially refused to take the bus at the scheduled departure time from the team hotel to the CAA Centre in Brampton and ESPNcricinfo understands it was a protest over unpaid wages.

    A press release from the organizers said, "The game between Montreal Tigers & Toronto Nationals on Wednesday, August 7th, 2019, was delayed due to procedural issues between the players, the GT20 league, and the franchise owners. All the stakeholders had a meeting and addressed the concerns."

    TV coverage of the match made no mention of the protest. Global T20 Canada made a statement via their Twitter account at 12:40 pm local time, also making no mention of the protest. Instead, the account stated that the match had been "delayed due to technical reasons" and announced that it had been pushed back to a 2:30 pm local time start from the originally scheduled 12:30 pm and that it would remain a full 20-over contest. A source confirmed that team buses eventually left the hotel at 1 pm.

    The protest is also significant due to the involvement of Toronto Nationals, led by Yuvraj Singh. Toronto entered the day in fifth place on four points and needed a win in order to advance to the play-off stage so abandoning the match via protest would have ended their season. But they were apparently willing to take that risk in order to ensure their players were paid. League organizers had hosted a fundraiser on Monday night for his YouWeCan Foundation.

    ESPNcricinfo understands the protest is not limited to these two teams. Sources have said other squads have told team and league owners Bombay Sports Limited that they will refuse to take the field for the playoff stage beginning on Thursday if their unpaid wages have not been fulfilled.

    "We're not gonna play until we get paid," one player from another team, who asked not to be named, told ESPNcricinfo.

    According to the league's contract structure provided by multiple sources, 10-15% of the players' salaries was supposed to be paid before the start of the tournament while a remaining 75% was due by the end of the first round, which concluded on Sunday. However, sources state that the majority of players across all teams have not been paid any money.

    It is believed that a protest had been planned by Vancouver Knights and Winnipeg Hawks before Tuesday's second round match before owners managed to facilitate a 45% payment to some, but not all, players. The match wound up being abandoned without a ball bowled due to a wet outfield.

    It's the latest in a series of pay issues to have affected the tournament. A number of Canada players are reported to have been furious when their reserve prices were suddenly capped at US$7500 on the day of the draft without any explanation from organizers. Canada captain Davy Jacobs, who had set his initial reserve price at $25,000, was drafted by Edmonton Royals but withdrew on the eve of the tournament, posting a Facebook message to say he had decided to focus on his construction business instead.

    Sources have also told ESPNcricinfo that some player payments from the 2018 Global T20 Canada tournament are also outstanding. Specifically, some players who were named player of the match over the course of the season have not received their award payments.

    Bombay Sports Limited, the owners of the league, are also the organizers of the Euro T20 Slam, which is due to begin on August 30.
