Canada scored 137 runs for 7 wickets
Earlier, Canada scored 137 runs for 7 wickets with a 75-run partnership in 63 balls for the fifth wicket between Nicholas Kirton (49) and Shreyas Movva (37). Kirton, who scored 51 runs in 31 balls against America in the last match, missed his second consecutive half-century by one run, but he brought the team back into the match by hitting three fours and two sixes in his 35-ball innings. The Canadian team was on the backfoot after losing the fourth wicket for 53 runs in the ninth over. Kirton and wicketkeeper Movva batted sensibly and took the team to a fighting score on a difficult pitch. Movva hit three fours in his 36-ball innings before being run out on the last ball. For Ireland, Craig Young and Barry McCarty took two wickets each while Mark Adair and Gareth Delany got one wicket each.

This group has gotten exciting
After America’s victory against Pakistan, this group has become exciting where every team is trying hard to reach the Super Eight. After being invited to bat first, Canada’s top order batsmen were under pressure from the very beginning. Navneet Dhaliwal (six) fell prey to Eder in the third over. From the other end, Aaron Johnson (14) hit fours on consecutive balls against Josh Little, who has played IPL, but then got caught by Curtis Campher on Young’s ball.

Movva ended the boundary drought after 26 balls
Pargat Singh hit fours on consecutive balls against McCarty to take the team’s score to 37 for two in the power play. His innings of 18 runs in 14 balls was ended by Young getting him caught by Little. Leg spinner Delany, who came to bowl in the ninth over, sent Dilpreet Singh (seven) to the pavilion. Kirton and Movva then focused on stealing runs by running without taking any risk. Movva ended the boundary drought of 26 balls when he hit two fours against Young in the 13th over.

Kirton added 44 runs with Movva
Kirton showed aggressive attitude in the 15th over against Young and completed the team’s century by hitting a six and a four on the first two balls and then completed a half-century partnership with Movva in 44 balls by taking one run. He scored 18 runs from this over by hitting another six on the last ball. After dismissing Kirton in the 19th over, McCarty took two wickets in the over by dismissing Dinol Heliger without opening the account. Movva hit a four in the last over but was run out on the last ball.
