Canada assured of qualification after beating Caymans

2019-08-22

With a win over the Caymans today in the ICC Americas T20 finals, Canada are assured  of a top-two finish in the tournament, and a place in the ICC T20 World Cup qualifier. 

 Canada won the toss and chose to bowl. After just one over of pace, Canada turned to their spinners, and Saad Bin Zafar, Nikhil Dutta and Nitish Kumar all took wickets as Caymans reached 43/3 after 8.4 overs. Saad Bin Zafar took two more wickets to record figures of 4-0-8-3, and the Caymans managed just 91/7 in their twenty overs. 

In replay Canada survived a scare, losing both openers without a run on the board, but Dhaliwal (53*) and Kumar (37*) took them to victory without losing another wicket and with 8 overs in hand. Canada thus have 7 points and cannot finish lower than second in the tournament,
