Cricket Canada believes that the future of Canadian cricket is still bright, despite Scotiabank not renewing its current sponsorship agreement.
"Cricket Canada wishes to clarify the current relationship between Cricket Canada and Scotiabank. On October 30, 2009, Scotiabank informed Cricket Canada that they would not renew the current agreement between the two parties. Cricket Canada would like to thank Scotiabank for their support over the past two years and look forward to developing a future relationship in the near future," said Cricket Canada in a statement.
"All programmes under the auspices of Cricket Canada remain unaffected and will continue through to the end of 2009 and beyond. Cricket Canada continues to meet its challenges with a renewed sense of hope and strength."
Canada is one of four Associate Members taking part in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011.
