Canada Claim Fifth Place With Comprehensive Win

Canada beat Bermuda by eight wickets in their fifth-place play off at the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifiying tournament in Belfast.

Bermuda were bowled out for 70 in 20 overs before Canada raced to 71 for two in the 11th over of their reply.

Only Oliver Pitcher (15) and Stefan Kelly (11 not out) got into double figures for Bermuda, while extras also accounted for 11 of their runs.

There were two wickets for Henry Osinde, Steven Welsh, Sunil Dhaniram and Harvir Baidwan.

Canada lost Mohammad Qazi to the first ball of their reply, caught by Steven Outerbridge off of George O'Brien and although John Davison (19) fell as well, Geoff Barnett, with 31 not out and Ashish Bagai, with an unbeaten 15, ensured Canada took a consolation victory.
