Ottawa: Cricket Canada named their 15-member squad on Thursday for the upcoming T20 World Cup. All-rounder Saad Bin Zafar will lead the Canadian side in the ICC tournament.

Orthodox spinner and skipper Saad will bring a wealth of experience to the squad, with batter Aaron Johnson and pacer Kaleem Sana also likely to take part in the side, where just four players are under the age of 30.

There was no place for Nikhil Dutta and Srimantha Wijeyeratne in the squad. Meanwhile, Tajinder Singh will travel to the USA and West Indies for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 as a reserve.
