Canada’s men’s cricket team is headed to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup for the first time ever after defeating Bermuda by 39 runs Saturday in Hamilton, Bermuda.

Canada won the toss and elected to bat first at the National Sports Centre. Each team was restricted to 18 overs, down from 20, due to the delayed start and weather conditions.

The Canadian batsmen finished strongly with Nicholas Kirton sparking a 20-run final over for a total of 132 runs for four wickets. Opener Navneet Dhaliwal led Canada with 45 runs.
