Canada plays Netherlands in WCL

Canada took on the Netherlands in a World Cricket League game reduced to 28 overs after a delayed start but further rain meant no result. The Netherlands were dismissed for 143 after at one point being 49/5, debutant Kenneth Kamayuka taking 4 wickets. Canada made a good start to the chase before rain halted play with the score 62/1 after 10 overs.
The Netherlands are close to the top of the table, aiming for World Cup qualification, while Canada languishes in the lower part of the list. Canada were hoping to build on their excellent win in the InternContinental Cup. The start was delayed due to a wet outfield and the Netherlands batted first in a match reduced to 28 overs/ side. Canada got off to a great start thanks to a run-out, some great bowling from Jeremy Gordon with two wickets, and Kamayuka with a wicket on debut reducing Netherlands to 22/4. Swart went on the attack and made a quick 25 before Kamayuka fooled him with a slower ball – 49/5 after 11 overs. Daesrath took an excellent catch in the deep off Junaid Siddiqui as wickets continued to fall. Netherlands were saved by a brilliant innings of 74 from 59 balls from Cooper, and totaled 143. Kamayuka had an impressive Canadian debut with four wickets.
The Canadian reply got off to a poor start when the in-form Gunasekera fell for a duck, but Patel and Kumar took the score to 62 from 10 overs with no further loss when rain intervened. No further play was possible.
