Canada - Three to watch
JOHN DAVISON

John Davison
Age 36, right-handed batsman, right-arm off-spin
Shot to prominence in the 2003 World Cup by scoring the fastest century in the history of the competition, a stunning 111 from 76 balls with six sixes against the West Indies.

For good measure he added the third-fastest fifty, smashing four sixes in 75 from 62 balls against New Zealand.

Also a regular wicket-taker with his slow bowling, Davison has played in Australia for Victoria and took over the Canada captaincy in 2004.

QAISER ALI

Qaiser Ali
Age 28, right-handed batsman, right-arm off-spin
Born in the Punjab, the portly figure of Ali has played only a handful of one-day internationals for Canada, with little success.

But in December, in the longer form of the game he made a commanding 174 with 19 fours and two sixes in an ICC Intercontinental Cup match, although it was still not enough to prevent defeat by the Netherlands.

That followed a 91 against Kenya earlier in the summer, when Ali was widely praised for his expansive range of strokes.

GEORGE CODRINGTON

George Codrington
Age 40, right-handed, batsman, right-arm seamer
Senior statesman, who skippered the side in their latest match against the Netherlands.

Some stoic, if unspectacular, displays with bat and ball during his clutch of ODIs, he claimed a career-best 4-33 bowling third change against Bermuda in the ICC Tri-Series.
