Cricket fans across the world had their eyes on Lord's for a thrilling World Cup final, but those in Canada were also  looking towards King City, where the Canadian Under 19 team beat the USA by 5 wickets, thereby qualifying for the Under 19 World Cup to be held in South Africa from 17 January to 9 February 2020. Both teams had cruised through the tournament so far, with one sided wins over Bermuda, Caymans and Argentina. USA batted first, and a fine bowling performance from Canada dismissed the US for just 112 in 32.4 overs. All five of those who bowled took wickets. Canada lost five wickets, but passed their total with 38 overs to spare. 

Congratulations to the team, coaches and support staff on achieving their goal!

Canada continues its quest to qualify for the U19 World Cup with a big win over the Cayman Islands today. Canada are 3 and 0 following one sided wins over Bermuda and Argentina. Canada had Thursday off, as the USA beat Argentina for their third win of the tournament, and the Cayman Islands lost to Bermuda. A win today for Canada has set up a match with the USA on Sunday to decide the tournament winners.

Canada batted first for the first time in the tournament and took full advantage of some loose Caymans bowling, posting a massive 441/5  total. Two Canadians made centuries (pictured above), Eshan Sensarma with 105, and Ashton Deosammy with 155 from just 104 balls. The Caymans managed just 50 in reply, no batsman making double figures and Deosammy capped a memorable day by taking 3 wickets for 2 runs to secure a 391 run win.
