Captain Navi Dhaliwal stroked yet another composed century and then snared four outstanding catches to lead his Canadian cricket team to a crushing victory over Qatar as matches continued in the ICC 2023 World Cup Challenge League A – Round 2 tournament being played at the Maple Leaf Cricket Club in King City Ontario. Dhaliwal’s century, his second of the tournament following the 101 he scored against Singapore on Saturday July 30th, was the backbone of Canada’s posted first strike 50 overs total of 274/9. In reply. Qatar’s batsmen found themselves to be at sea against both the express pace of Jeremy Gordon and the left-arm spinning wiles of Salman Nazar. The two Canadian’s scythed through the Qatar innings capturing seven wickets of the ten wickets to fall. 

Having won the toss and elected to bat, skipper Dhaliwal found himself having to do a repair job to his team’s innings after the early loss of his fellow opener Rayyan Pathan (7) who fell in the fourth over (3.3) with the score on 21. Matthew Spoors coming in at three, however, played yet another supportive innings adding 54 with Dhaliwal for the second wicket before becoming the victim of a questionable umpiring decision. 

Struck on the pad by a Mohammed Nadeem delivery that kept somewhat low, Spoors was flabbergasted to see Umpire Mallela raise the dreaded finger. So much so that he visibly questioned the umpire’s decision in manner that could possibly result in an ICC issued reprimand! Spoors’ controversial departure for 15 led to the crease arrival of Nicholas Kirton who had been the top-scoring batting hero of Canada’s July 27 tournament opener victory over Denmark. 

Having suffered the ignominy of a first ball dismissal two days prior, during Canada’s victory over Malaysia, Kirton was almost back to his very best, stroking an elegant 47 balls 37 as his contribution to a 93 run third-wicket partnership with his skipper Dhaliwal. The Canadian captain’s wicket was eventually the fourth to fall, but not before he’d reached his century (103) off of 116 balls with twelve fours included. 

Saad Bin Zafar came and went in a hurry, scoring just 1 before he too exited without an addition to the score. 5/171-36.6 overs might not have been where the Canadians would have envisioned themselves to be at that stage of proceedings. Any worries of a further collapse were, however, effectively thwarted by a 51-run partnership between Harsh Thaker (22) and Ravinderpaul Singh (56*) for the sixth wicket. 

Singh’s valuable innings was punctuated by three massive sixes and two fours as his legendary power-hitting talents finally came to the fore for the very first time in the tournament. There were further losses of the wickets of Dillon Heyliger (10), brilliantly caught at mid-wicket by the diving Assad Borham for what has surely been thus far the catch of the tournament, Shreyas Movva (10) and Salman Nazar (1) via the run-out route off the very last ball of the innings which closed with the Canadian score on 274/9-50 overs.

Set a challenging but by no means insurmountable 275 for victory off the allocated 50 overs, Qatar’s response got off to an almost identical start as Canada’s. Qatar’s first wicket, that of Akash Babu (11) smartly caught by Canadian skipper Dhaliwal at slip off the bowling of Jeremey Gordon, fell with the score on 21 after 3.3 overs. As indicated almost identical and just a singe shy of Canada’s 1/21-3.3 first wicket loss.

The loss of Qatar’s second wicket at 67 after 13.4 overs was also not at all dissimilar to Canada’s which had occurred on 75 after 17.6 overs. There were no further similarities for the remainder of the Qatari response, however, as wickets crumbled in a heap in the face of Jeremy Gordon’s highly uncomfortable express pace. Well supported as it was by Salman Nazar’s clever left-arm spin. 

There were six single digit scores as Qatar lost eight wickets in the space of twelve overs for only an additional 31 runs! Zaheer Ibrahim’s 36 balls 34 was the only resistance of note as the Qatar crumbled to an eventual massive 184 runs defeat.

Gordon claimed 4/22-6, while Nazar chipped in with 3/37-5.5. There were also single wicket hauls for Harsh Thaker 1/6-4 and Saad Bin Zafar 1/25-8 as well as a run out via a direct hit throw from point by the diving Matthew Spoors as a final just reward for his demonstrated electrifying fielding in each and every one of the matches Canada has played in the tournament thus far.

Canada’s outstanding tournament fielding was even further emphasized by Skipper Dhaliwal’s slip catching. The Canadian captain snared four victims standing at slip with catches that were at times breathtaking. Leading from the front in setting fielding standards that have been no less as lofty as those of his twin centuries punctuated batting.

  

Summarized Scores:

Canada 274/9-50 ovrs. Navneet Dhaliwal 103, Ravinderpal Singh 56, Nicholas Kirton 37. Mohammed Nadeem 3/41-10, Muhammed Murad 3/47-9.

Qatar 91/10- 25.5 ovrs. Zaheer Ibrahim 34. Jeremy Gordon 4/22-6, Salman Nazar 3/27-5.5

Hosts Canada’s triumphant march towards ICC 2023 World Cup Challenge League A Round 2 glory continued on Sunday July 31 with crushing 121 runs win over Malaysia. Man-of-the Match Saad Bin Zafar’s five-for, 5/31-8.3, the second to be recorded by a Canadian player during the tournament following Dilon Heyliger’s 5/34-8 in the hosts’ July 27 opening encounter against Denmark, was the difference-maker in the match.

Replying to Canada’s posted first-strike total of 239/8-50 overs, Malaysia’s batsmen proved themselves to be cluelessly at sea against Zafar’s left-arm spinning wiles. Once he had been introduced to the attack the impressively experienced Zafar carved through the Malaysian bating like a hot knife through butter, taking wickets with increasing regularity as the visitors and impending hosts for the tournament’s forthcoming deciding Round 3 later this year collapsed in a heap to be all out for 118 in under 30 overs (29.3).

Earlier, Canada had reached its posted 50 overs total of 239/8 thanks mainly to a matured unbeaten 57 by the 24-year-old Harsh Thaker. Dropped at point before he’d scored, Thaker corrected the error of his early innings attempted aggression with a composed 72 balls half-century that was punctuated by just five fours. 

Thaker’s half-century was built upon the foundation that been laid by a second-wicket partnership of 41 between Rayyan Pathan (49) and Matthew Spoors (23) following the early loss of second-match centurion skipper Navneet Dhaliwal. The Canadian captain perished early, falling for just 8 with the score on 15.

Following his failures in both of Canada’s two previous matches, Pathan demonstrated his intent to get back amongst the runs controlling his natural aggression in compiling a composed 49 that was made off of 54 balls including just one six and a half-dozen fours. His eventual dismissal, agonizingly one run short of what would have been a most deserved half-century, was the direct result if his having been stuck at the non-strikers end on 49 for no less than five overs. During that time Pathan could only stand as a hapless witness to the ongoing struggles of the Canadian’s wicket-keeper batsman Shreyas Movva who proved to be far more successfully at jockeying the strike at the end of each over than he was at scoring at any acceptable rate. 

Movva posted 39 that included three fours. His eventual dismissal, as the fifth Canadian wicket to fall and with the score on 153 after 32.2 overs opened the door for the aggressive intentions of Thaker and eventually Dilon Heyliger. The burly Heyliger was almost at his belligerent best striking two massive sixes and one four in an unbeaten 28 that only required 19 balls, and which gave the Canadian innings just the impetus that was needed in its final overs.  

Summarized Scores:

Canada 239/8-50 ovrs. Harsh Thaker 57*, Rayyan Pathan 49, Dhivendarn Mogan 2/29-4.

Malaysia 118/10/29.3 ovrs. Sarvin Munlandy 48. Saad Bin Zafar 5/31-8.3, Salman Nazar 2/15-8, Jeremy Gordon 2/27-6.

Canada won by 118 runs.

Canada crushed arch-rivals Singapore by six wickets when the two ICC 2023 World Cup Challenge League A points table leaders clashed on July 30 during the tournament’s second round matches being played at Ontario’s King City-based Maple Leaf Cricket Club. The Canadians were led to victory by a composed unbeaten century (100+) from their captain Navneet Dhaliwal.

Opening the batting, Dhaliwal safely piloted his team’s response to Singapore’s posted modest first innings total of 188/10 after the Canadians had suffered the early third-over loss of Rayyan Pathan (1). Attempting an ill-advised cut shot off the bowling of Singapore’s skipper Amjad Mahmood, who he was facing for the first time, Pathan succeeded only in stroking the ball straight into the hands of the diving fielder at point to be sent packing with the Canadian score on just 3. 

Dhaliwal’s unbeaten century which included 12 fours and required only 103 balls for its construction, however, proved to be an impenetrable wall of resistance to any hopes Singapore might have held for a come-from-behind victory. Following the obvious inadequacy of their posted first innings total.

The damage created by the early loss of Pathan’s prized wicket was easily repaired by a second-wicket partnership of 62 between Dhaliwal and Matthew Spoors. The Alberta based Spoors struck a polished 27 off of 37 balls and seemed destined for a much higher score. He was, however, cleverly deceived by the spinning wiles of Paaram, falling all over his attempted forward defensive push to a well flighted delivery only to completely lose his balance in falling out of his crease. Singapore’s wicket-keeper Manpreet Singh effected the required smart stumping that sent Spoors on his way back to the pavilion.

Nicholas Kirton, who had featured as Canada’s batting hero in its opening match victory against Denmark, then became the second successive victim of Param’s left arm spinning wiles. Kirton was struck plumb in front first ball to be adjudged lbw, playing back when he might have been much better served going forward to a delivery which kept low. Kirton was gone for naught, and the Canadian innings was suddenly tottering on 66/3 in the 15th (14.4) over. 

Varun Sehdev, who had under-performed with the bat against Denmark having scored only 1, however, not only prevented Paaram from achieving a hat-trick but then also combined with his skipper Dhaliwal in a 73-runs partnership for the fifth wicket that deflated Singapore’s rekindled hopes of an unlikely victory. After an understandably nervous start, Sehdev compiled a sedate 32 off of 60 balls to take the Canadians well within reach of their victory target.

Sehdev departed off the final ball of the 31st over, bowled by Baskaran. His exit, however, only prompted the arrival of Shreyas Movva, the dynamo Canadian wicket-keeper batsman whose belligerent 16-balls 35 runs cameo had seen his team home to victory against Denmark. 

Movva (19*) was far more subdued in his second crease appearance, content to play second-fiddle to his captain Dhaliwal’s march towards his coveted unbeaten century. Movva, however, had the honor of clinching the victory smashing the second ball of the 41st over for four to give Canada the very crushing win by 6 wickets with 52 balls still remaining.

As the dejected Singaporeans trudged off of the King City field, their primary thoughts must have been about the demonstrated inadequacies of their batting in posting a first innings total of 188/10 – 50 overs. That was never going to be sufficient against Canada’s very strong batting. 

Anish Paaram’s 57 and opener Rohan Rangaram’s 49 were the only scores of note as Singapore’s batsmen found the generated heat of Canada’s Guyana-born duo Jeremy Gordon and Dilon Heyliger, a bit too hot to handle. Gordon 2/40-9 and Heyliger 2/44-8.2 both troubled almost all of Singapore’s batsmen with their at-times express pace and steep bounce. 

Canada’s third seamer, Ammar Khalid also chipped in with 1/21-4 and while the seamers were combing to capture half of Singapore’s wickets at one end, the spinners were doing almost the same exact job at the other. Saad Bin Zafar 1/21-10, Varun Sehdev 1/22-8 and Salman Nazar 1/29-10 each provided valuable support to a combined, very clinical, Canadian bowling performance of which recently appointed Head Coach Pubudu Dassanayake would have been justifiably extremely proud.


Summarized Scores:

Singapore 188/10-50 ovrs. Anish Paaram 57, Rohan Rangaram 49. Jeremy Gordon 2/40-9, Dilon Heyliger 2/44-8.2

Canada 190/4-41.2 ovrs. Navneet Dhaliwal 100*, Varun Sehdev 32. Anish Paaram 2/23-4.

Canada won by 6 wickets with 52 balls remaining.

Ontario Triumphs Over BC To Be Crowned National T20 Champions!

In a match that was a fitting conclusion to an impressively staged five-day tournament and worthily competitive as a Final, Ontario defeated British Columbia by 5 wickets to claim the coveted title of Canadian National 2022 T20 Champions. Ontario’s very strong batting line-up, comprised as it was of a plethora of Canadian National team batsmen, was in the end just that much too strong to endure any insurmountable challenges in surpassing BC’s posted, decidedly insufficient, 20-overs total of 151-4.

The highlight of BC’s 151-4 was yet another delightful half-century from the Canadian National team’s recently debuted opening batsman, Aaron Johnson. The Jamaican-born Johnson who made his Canadian debut in a recent July 7 50 Over friendly match against Nepal, struck 7 fours in his 40-ball fifty. He and Anoop Raini (18) combined for an opening partnership of 51 that was made in 7.4 overs. Johnson then added 31 with Bhupinder Singh (23), before he was eventually deceived by Parveen Kumar’s clever slower delivery to be caught and bowled, almost immediately after he’d completed his half-century celebrations.

BC’s hard-hitting skipper, National Canadian batsman Ravi Singh, tried desperately to provide his team’s innings with the impetus necessary to achieve a sufficiently challenging first-strike total. Singh’s aggressively struck 38, with 5 fours included, only required 21 balls. It proved to be in vain though as he departed, bowled by Shahbaz Kayani off the fourth ball of the 20th over, with the score on 149.

Shahbas Kayani returned the best figures among the six Ontario bowlers used, all of whom were relatively expensive. He claimed 1/18 from his 3 overs.

Set an undaunting 152/20 overs for victory, Ontario’s openers Rayyan Pathan and Shubham Sharma went about their task as if there were only half that many available balls to be faced. Sharma was a virtual non-striking spectator as Pathan, the tournament’s leading run-scorer, carved BC’s opening bowlers to every part of the King City outfield. 

Pathan struck 2 sixes and 3 fours, 24 boundary runs in total in his 12-ball innings of 25. Had he not been caught at long-off somewhat needlessly attempting to hit yet another boundary off the fourth ball of the third over, the first three of which had produced 6, 4 and 6, BC’s posted 151 run total might indeed have been surpassed within under 10 overs.

Sharma (3) perhaps attempting to duplicate Pathan’s fireworks was dismissed soon after, caught by Bhupinder Singh off the bowling of Udaybir Singh Walia with the score on 32. Ontario’s skipper Navneet Dhaliwal, whose role with the Canadian National team is identical, however steadied the innings with a typically composed knock of 27 that was made off of 23 balls. Dhaliwal’s innings was punctuated by 1 six and 3 fours. 

Dhaliwal’s was the third wicket to fall, departing as he did with the score on 86/3-9.5 overs. He and Armaan Kapoor (40) had added 54 for the third wicket. 

Kapoor’s useful 40 was made off of 27 balls and included 5 fours. After Kapoor fell, bowled by Newab Singh off the third ball of the thirteenth over, there was the quick further loss of Parveen Kumar whose short-lived innings of 4 lasted only 6 balls. Kapoor fell with the score on 118/5 after 14.1 overs raising BC hope of q come from behind victory. 

Whatever hopes the BC players and their visiting supporters may have harboured for such an unlikely victory were effectively squashed by an unbeaten 34-runs sixth wicket partnership between Canadian National team all-rounders Harsh Thakar and Saad Bin Zafar. Thakar scored 29* off 21 balls with one six and a four. Zafar’s contribution was 21* off 16 balls with 2 fours.

The pair saw Ontario home to victory without any further stress, to the gleeful delight of their fellow team members. Following the match’s conclusion there were presentations of numerous awards to the tournament’s outstanding players, as well of course the Championship trophy to Ontario’s captain Navneet Dhaliwal. 

Ontario’s Rayyan Pathan who scored 254 runs from 5 innings at an average of 63.50 and at a strike rate of 145.14 was named the tournament’s CO-MVP alongside Aaron Johnson of BC. Johnson’s 208 tournament runs were scored from 6 innings at an average of 34.67 with a 139.50 strike rate.

Earlier in the day, Quebec 133/8-20 overs had persevered over Nova Scotia 121/6-20 to claim a narrow twelve runs victory and third place in the tournament’s final standings. Quebec captain Shreyas Movva again provided the backbone of his team innings with a top score of 34, made from 45 balls with 5 fours. Zeeshan Ansari 2/17-2, Shadab Ahmed 2/19-4 and Rahul Vashishtha 2/25-3 were Nova Scotia’s top wicket-takers.

Chasing 134 for victory in 20 overs at a run rate of under 7 runs per over, Nova Scotia came close but not close enough, agonizingly falling short of their victory total by just 12 runs. Neel Patel’s ever 50, made off 34 balls with 1 six and 9 fours was the top score of the Nova Scotia innings. Bowling for Quebec, Ramki Gangasani 2/23-3 was the top wicket-taker,

Nova Scotia’s Surge Ends With Semi-Final Loss As BC, Ontario Claim Final Berths!

Starting the National T20 Championships’ Fourth day in next to last place in the Group B standings with only one win from three matches played, no one would have expected Nova Scotia to have earned themselves a semi-final berth by mid-afternoon. Except perhaps, the Nova Scotians themselves.

Needing to win their fourth and final Preliminary Round match against Prince Edward Island (PEI) by a sufficiently decisive margin as to surpass Manitoba’s -0.175 net run rate to get into the Group’s second place position, Nova Scotia did just that, winning by 29 runs to end at -o.139. Nova Scotia’s victory and semi-final advancement was, however, spectacularly only achieved off the third ball of the game’s final over. 

Taking first strike Nova Scotia scored 123/9-20 with Daksh Talwar’s 37 as the top score. Manny Dhaliwal 2/20-4 and Fahad Ahmad 2/32-4 were PEI’s top wicket-takers.

Chasing 130 for victory, PEI lost wickets at a rate of almost one every two overs. The twentieth over started with PEI on 94/9 and Nova Scotia needing to win by at least 26 runs to secure their semi-final spot. Mission accomplished as PEI folded without further addition to the score off the third ball of the 20th over to hand the delighted Nova Scotians their much coveted victory by 29 runs.

Nova Scotia’s advancement meant that they would have to play their semi-final against Group A Winners British Columbia as a back-to-back match with just over an hour’s break in between. Whilst the players for all four semi-finalists, BC, Quebec, Ontario and Nova Scotia cooled their heels waiting for the appointed start time of their finalists-determining matches to arrive, Newfoundland and New Brunswick were competing against each other in the final game of the Preliminary Round. 

Newfoundland batting first posted 112/9 off its 20 overs with Gurman Khurana’s 19 as the top score. Hitarth Bhavsar 2/11-2 and Rishabh Verma 2/20-4 were New Brunswick’s top wicket-takers.

Set 113 for victory, New Brunswick reached its target in the 19th (18.4) over for the loss of 7 wickets. Kamran Mohammed top scored with a belligerent 63 that was made off of only 36 balls with 3 sixes and 5 fours included. Indranil Mallick Neel (2/11-1.4) and Ibnul Inan Chowdhury (2/21-4) were Newfoundland’s double-wickets takers.

Day Four’s Ontario vs Quebec semi-final proved to be a bit of a lopsided contest. Batting first Ontario posted 199/9-20 with the tournament’ batting leader Rayyan Pathan further establishing his class with yet another half-century. 

Pathan’s 71 required only 40 balls, punctuated as it was by 3 sixes and 9 fours. He was well supported by his captain Navneet Dhaliwal who played a composed innings of 43, that was made off of 39 balls with 2 sixes and3 fours. Dillon Heyliger’s 11 ball 31, inclusive of 4 sixes and 1 four, provided some fireworks in the last few overs of Ontario’s innings.

Needless to say, all of Quebec’s bowlers took a hiding. So much so that Ramki Gangasani’s 2/28-4 were the very best figures.  

200 for victory at a required rate of 10 runs per over was always going to be a mountainous task for Quebec. Skipper Shreyas Movva tried his very best, getting to 32 off 28 balls before he became the first of Parveen Kumar’s (2/22-4) two victims. There was unfortunately, however, not much more on offer from his teammates as they could only get as far as 103/7-20 to lose by 97 runs. Saad Bin Zafar (2/26-4) was Ontario’s second most successful bowler.

While Ontario was making short work of Quebec, Group A Winners BC was also establishing its dominance over upstart semi-finalists Nova Scotia. Batting first BC posted 142/9-20.

Aaron Johnson served further notice to the Canadian Selectors of his National team opening batsman aspirations, by means of his 39 ball 50 which included 2 sixes and 6 fours. Rahul Vashishtha (4/33-4) and Daksh Talwar (2/18-4) had the best figures among the six bowlers used by Nova Scotia in its attempt to restrict BC’s total.

As it turned out the 143-run victory target set by BC proved to high a hill for Nova Scotia’s battle wearied batsmen. 78 all out in 16.5 overs was all they could manage in the face of some disciplined BC bowling. Dilpreet Singh Bajwa (3/11-4), Navot Dosanjh (3/14-40 and Newab Singh (2/12-2) were the primary wicket-takers for BC.

The Championship’s eventful Day 4 came to a conclusion with ninth-tenth and eight-seventh positions determining matches between Newfoundland-PEI and Alberta – New Brunswick respectively. Newfoundland (120/9-20) clinched the ninth spot with a very close 15 run victory over PEI (105/8-20).

Mahe Alam Chowdhury (52) and Guram Khurana (44) were Newfoundland’s batting heroes, while Ibnul Inan Chowdhury (3.12-4) was their main destroyer of the PEI batting. Earlier for the Islanders Akhil Mohan 3/16-4 had been the pick of their bowlers. The batsmen, however failed to duplicate his heroics with Piryam Soni’s (32) and Parth Patel’s (29) being the only scores of note.

The Alberta-New Brunswick contest for the seventh and eight positions in the tournament’s final standings was far more one sided than the Newfoundland-PEI encounter. Batting first Alberta posted an impressive 180/3-20. Jigesh Raval (52*) and Jagandeep (51*) both scored unbeaten half-centuries. Yasoob Haq (45) was just five runs short of the same achievement.

Chasing 181 for victory, New Brunswick got as far as 119/8-20 with Hitarth Bhavsar 32* as the top scorer. Canadian National player Yax Patel became the Championship’s very first bowler to take 5 wickets with figures of 5/14-4!

The Championship’s July 15 fifth and final day will feature the Manitoba-Saskatchewan fifth-sixth place and Nova Scotia-Quebec third-fourth place encounters. Both matches will be played simultaneously. Before the tournament climaxing BC-Ontario finalich is

Hiral Patel (70) Aaditya Vardarajan (60), Udaybir Singh Walia (56), Shreyas Movva (53) all struck half-centuries while Rommel Shahzad 4/12 (4) was the pick of the bowlers as Day 1 of the three-day, September 13-15, 2021 Canadian National Men’s T20 Cricket Championships, got under-way at King City’s Maple Leaf Cricket Club. The four scheduled Day 1 matches featured the Sheilds vs Stallions; Fire vs Fury; Fire vs Stallions and Fury vs Shields.

The Shields vs Stallions match was a bit of a one-sided affair. Batting first Shields posted 122/9 off 20 overs, with Sukhpreet Khohar (32) and Canadian National team captain Navneet Dhaliwal (31) as the top scorers. Bowling for the Stallions, Rommel Shazad had the entire day’s most outstanding figures of 4/12-4. 

Chasing 123 for victory, the Stallions reached their target for the loss of only two wickets. Udaybir Singh Walia (56) and Shreya Movva (53) both posting half-centuries in an unbeaten 116 run third-wicket partnership that took the Stallions to their very comfortable victory.

Summarized Scores: Shields 122/9 (20 Ovrs) , Khohar 32, Dhaliwal 31, Shazad 4/12-4; Stallions 126/2 (18.3 Ovrs) Walia 56. Movva 53, Stallions won by 8 wickets.

While the Shields and Stallions were locking horns in their opening round fixture, Fury and Fire were also similarly engaged. Batting first Fury only managed to reach 105/9 (20) with Hamza Tariq, 30 as the only score of note. Meet Patel 3/10-3 was the Fire’s main wicket-taker, while Dosanjh claimed 2/13-3.

Chasing 105 for victory, Fire cruised to their target on the back of an unbeaten 50 ball 60 not out from their opening batsman Aaditya Vardarajan. Nicholas Manohar was also unbeaten on 19 as Fire ended on 107/2 (18.4) to claim victory by 8 wickets.

Summarized Scores; Fury 105/9 (20 Ovrs) Tariq 30, Meet Patel 3/10-3, Dosanjh 2/13-3; Fire 107/2 (18.4 Ovrs) Vardarajan 60. Fire won by 8 wickets.

Match 3 of the three National Championships’ Day 1 featured the Stallions against Fire in yet another lopsided encounter, Batting first the Stallions posted a formidable 164/4 of its 20 overs. Hiral Patel’s 56 ball 70 at the top of the order was the backbone of the innings. He also received some solid support from Armaan Kapoor’s aggressive 33 ball 46.

Set 165 to win in 20 overs at a very challenging required run rate of 8.25 runs per over, Fire’s batsmen were never in the hunt. Wickets fell regularly and Kavian Naress' patient 25 ball 31 was eventually the only score of note. Fire ended on 101/7 off its 20 overs. Hiral Patel had excellent figures of 3/9-3, while Rommel Shahzad 2/14-4 was almost as effective.

Summarized Scores: Stallions 164/4 (20 Ovrs) Patel 70, Kapoor 36; Fire 101/7 (20 Ovrs) Naress 25, Hiral Patel 3/9-3, Shahzad 2/14-4. Stallions won by 63 runs.

The final Day 1 match featured Fury against Shields in a highly competitive, low scoring encounter. Fury batting first was bundled out for 97 in 18.3 overs. Rodrigo Thomas’34 ball 30 was the only score worth noting. Kanwar Mann took 3/12-4 and there were also two-wicket hauls for Jatinder Matharu 2/12-3, Dilon Heyliger 2/17-3.3 and Farhan Malik 2/19-3.

Chasing a paltry 94 for victory Shields struggled initially losing wickets at 2, 3, 15, 36 and 38. From 38-5, they recovered, however, to 67 without further loss thanks to a 29 run sixth-wicket partnership between Bhupinder Singh (37) and Jatinder Matharu (13). 

The subsequent losses of Singh, Kanwar Mann (0) first ball and eventually Matharu at 67 and 79 respectively must have certainly caused some panic within the Shields dugout. Dillon Heyliger (22*) and Trevor Manoosingh (5*), however, saw them safely to victory without any further loss.

Summarized Scores: Fury 93/10 (20 Ovrs) Thomas 30, Mann 3/12-4. Shields 97/8 (19.3 Ovrs) Singh 37, Shahbaz Kayani 3/18-4. Shields won by 2 wickets.

The Championships' Tuesday, September 14 Day 2 will feature two 10;30 am start-time matches: Fire vs Shields and Fury vs Stallions. These will be followed by the Shields vs Stallions and Fire vs Fury matches bots of which are scheduled to start at 2:30 pm.

Canada, needing to beat the UAE in their final match of the round robin in the ICC WCT20 qualifier,  lost by 14 runs, and failed to make the play offs. Three consecutive losses saw them fall to 5th place in the group. 

Canada won the toss, chose to bowl, and got off to a great start, with Romesh Eranga bowling Rohan Mustafa in the first over, and Junaid Siddiqui, playing his first match of the tournament and opening the bowling, having Chirag Suri caught off his first ball. Saad Bin Zafar broke a promising partnership when Rameez Shahzad was given leg before- 48/3 in the 8th over. Tight bowling meant UAE did not hit a boundary in the middle 8 overs. Saad Bin Zafar took his second wicket in the 18th over, thanks to a fine stumping from Hamza Tariq, and his third next ball to a catch in the deep. He finished his spell with 3/21 from four overs. The UAE hit well to take 40 from the last two overs to set Canada a target of 155. Muhammad Usman made 89*. of their total of 154/5.

Wijeyeratne got Canada off to a bright start with 21 from 15 balls, but the scoring slowed in the middle overs. Navneet Dhaliwal made 41 from 36 balls but when he was out, Canada needed 73 from 7 overs. Ravinderpal Singh hit a couple of boundaries but with 28 needed from the last two overs he was caught in the deep. Kirton was unbeaten at the end, making  37 but took 39 balls in doing so. Canada finished on 140/5.

Last minute arrangements succeed to secure the tour

Antigua, Trinidad, South Africa or Sri Lanka puzzle was solved in favour of Sri Lanka, once it became clear that no other place provided much needed quality opposition and training arrangements than Sri Lanka. Institute of Sports (IOS), from Nagpur India, who have a long history of relationship with Cricket Canada were able to make all required arrangements to support Cricket Canada athletes training for the qualifier.

The Senior Men’s squad is practicing hard in Sri Lanka ahead of the WCL 2 Qualifiers. The squad held its first practice session at Panadura Ground on 10th March 2019. This world class training tour includes, cricket, mental and physical fitness as well as strategy sessions among other things. The training management has enforced a strict diet and training regime. The training is focused around team work, developing new skills and acclimatisation to foreign environments.

Following is the list of players and coaching staff, currently training in Sri Lanka. The final team for the qualifier shall be selected after the pre tour to South Africa and on the eve of starting of the qualifier in Namibia in April 2019.
