Canada have announced a 14-man squad for the 2012 Caribbean T20 in January.
Jimmy Hansra will lead the team for the tournament held between Antigua and Barbados from January 9 to January 23.
Canada made a good impression during the participation in the 2011 Caribbean T20, beating Hampshire in their first match as well as taking eventual winners Trinidad and Tobago all the way in a last-ball thriller.
The team from North America have just arrived back from a 10-day training camp in Barbados, during which they also played six T20 matches. Although they started the trip with three defeats they finished with two victories from their last three games, including one against a strong Barbados line-up.
The squad will leave from Toronto on January 6 and start the tournament on January 11 against Winward Islands at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.
