Logie Let Go By Canada
Former West Indies batsman Gus Logie has been sacked as the coach of Canada, Cricket Canada announced on Tuesday.
Logie’s dismissal follows Canada’s recent failure in the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier, where they missed out on securing a spot in the 2014 tournament.
Canada finished 12th after winning only two group games out of seven and Doug Hannum, CEO of Cricket Canada, said it was time for the board to act.
"This is obviously a challenging time for the organization but this decision is made with a view to prepare and send the best team to the World Cup Qualifier in January," Hannum said.
"Unfortunately you cannot change 15 players at once and something had to give. It's up to the playing group to pick themselves up give a good account of themselves in New Zealand."
Canada is currently chasing one of two spots available for the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
ODI status and a place in the ICC High Performance Programme are also at stake.
"We would like to thank Gus for all that he did while he was with us,” said Ravin Moorthy, the Cricket Canada president.
“His efforts in 2003 in South Africa are part of Canada's sporting history and his hard work and dedication to his craft are unparalleled”.
Logie, 53, who played 52 Tests and 158 ODIs for West Indies between 1981 and 1993, had had a stint with Canada during the 2003 World Cup.
In 2005, he signed a long-term coaching deal with Bermuda, with the team going to the 2007 Cricket World Cup Finals in the West Indies, but left them in 2009.
He replaced Michael Dighton for Canada in June last year.
"It's unfortunate that his tenure had to end after the disappointing tour of the UAE,” said Moorthy.
“But unfortunately this is a results-driven business and the results just weren't there."
Logie’s replacement has not yet been named.

Captain Tucker & Bermuda 20/20 Numbers
Jacobi Robinson Leading Wicket Taker
Bermuda concluded taking part in the ICC World Cup Twenty20 Qualifiers finishing 14th overall with a 2 and 6 record in the Tournament.
Bermuda captain Janeiro Tucker was disappointed with his team’s performance in the tournament and felt it was lacking in energy and attitude.
Tucker said, “Really not happy with how the team played and also not happy with the outcome. I thought we could have given a lot more energy on the field and the attitude could have been bit better.”
“What you put in is what you get out, that is why we lost again today,” tucker continued.
When asked about the positives that his team could take from the tournament, Tucker said, “Starting off with two wins was a positive but added that it should have done better to capitalize on it.”
“I thought we started off quiet well; Bermuda has never come to a tournament and got two out of two wins. Once we were up 2-nil, I was excited, I thought we had a chance of getting three or four in row, but I don’t think everyone had the same goal. I think we lacked energy in our matches after that, we just went downhill from there," concluded Tucker.
