Former South Africa wicketkeeper-batsman Davy Jacobs debuted for Canada on Saturday.
They lost to the Toronto Bears and West Indies B. Jacobs’ contributions were minor in both fixtures.
‘It looks like I will qualify to play for Canada towards the end of 2018, so it is something I am considering,’ the 35-year-old Jacobs said in a recent interview with USA Cricket.
‘I moved to Canada in 2015 after retiring from professional cricket. Countries such as Canada, USA, Oman and others – they should be provided with opportunities and structures for proper development.
‘I would love to see more associate nations featuring at World Cups and ICC tournaments, especially in the T20 format.’
The Klerksdorp-born Jacobs is also the head coach of the Ontario Cricket Academy – and previously worked with the national team.

The hard-hitting right-hander forged a T20 niche toward the end of a 14-year professional career, opening the batting for Mumbai in the IPL alongside cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar. The team also featured former Proteas and Cape Cobras batsman Richard Levi.
He also enjoyed stints with Northamptonshire in the English county competition and Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel in the CPL.
