Did you know?

Canada have been all out for record low scores in both the World Cups in which they have played

Canada can go home happy with their efforts.

Okay, so they suffered the ignomy of achieving the lowest-ever score in a one-day international.

But the win over Bangladesh was memorable, even though it probably says more about Bangladeshi weakness rather than Canadian strength.

Austin Codrington took five wickets in that match and another star to emerge was John Davison.

His wonderful 67-ball century against the West Indies was breathtaking.

And the South Australia player proved it was no flash in the pan when he clubbed New Zealand's bowlers for a quickfire 75 as well.

Results wise it may have gone downhill after that opening win, but they have the respect of people who didn't really expect much from them.
