Hiral Patel's heroics with the bat and ball couldn't save Canada from a four-wicket defeat against Kenya in the Intercontinental Cup. Patel struck a doughty 93 on the fourth day, scoring more than half of his side's second innings total, as the other batsmen fell to Nehemiah Odhiambo's pace. Canada folded for 175, leaving Kenya a target of 128 for victory.
Some late hitting from Ragheb Aga and three wickets each from Collins Obuya and Elijah Oteino helped Kenya win the second T20 against Canada in Dubai and share the series 1-1. Having scored 139 after electing to bat, Kenya dismissed Canada for 118 with seven balls to spare.
The top five Kenya batsmen reached double-figures but couldn't score more than 20 as they lost wickets regularly and were 76 for 5, primarily due to two wickets from left-arm spinner Hiral Patel. Rakep Patel and Aga then put on 57 off 37 for the sixth wicket which helped them reach 139.
Canada got some much needed confidence ahead of Monday's match against the Kenya with a spirited draw against Ireland that concluded Saturday. The agreement between the two sides was to bat 90 overs each day and Canada after winning the toss on Friday put the Irish into bat. Rayan Pathan introduced himself to Irish cricket with 4-56 and was joined by fellow youngster Nikil Dutta (4-51) in giving the top ranked associate side all they could handle. Ireland were bowled out for 145 with only former England international Ed Joyce reaching a half century. The Irish would eventually finish the day effectively 240-12.
On Saturday Canada got their turn and it was Hiral Patel (63) leading the way as he put on 52 runs with Ruvindu Gunasekera for the opening stand and Canada were on their way. With some needed contributions from the middle order Canada made 225-10 before heading back in. Raza ur-Rehman (56*), who missed out in the first innings got some much needed time at the crease. In the end Canada would make 295 from their 90 overs and carry some much needed confidence and a bit of swagger into Monday's meeting with Kenya.

Canada staged a much improved batting peformance on their final day in T&T in the lone 50 over match of the tour on Saturday. Winning the toss and batting first, Hiral Patel hit stride with 63 ball 58 putting on 69 runs with Ruvindu Gunasekera (12) for the opening wicket. Low double digit contributions from the middle order stalled Canada's progress but the lower order (Tariq - 31, Cheema 18, Siddiqui - 17) took Canada past the 200 mark.
In reply, T&T set about the target with fervour Lendl Simmons (41) and Evan Lewis (87) set T&T's platform before both falling to Nikhil Dutta (3-37). Dutta and Damodar Deasarath (2-40) were Canada's wicket takers and Trinidad got over the target with 10 overs to spare. Dutta's bowling peformance coupled with Patel striking with the bat highlighted some key positives coming out of the tour and set the stage for future tours.
Canada is next slated to play in the World Cup Qualification series against Kenya in March in Dubai.

Trinidad and Tobago lived up to their billing as the Caribbean's top side on Thursday winning comfortably over Canada. Batting first, RedForce proved they came to play in round 1 of the Howzatt SuperLeague amassing a massive 182-2 from 20 overs. Denesh Ramdin top scored for T&T with an unbeaten 64 from 34 balls. Evan Kewis (50) and Kjorn Ottley (48*) joined in on the assault in an entertaining 50 overs. Only Jeremy Gordon and Junaid Siddiqui picked up wickets for Canada.
In reply, Canada started positively before the wheels came off. 17 runs came off the first two overs and it was game on but Canada was unable to find the boundary nor stymie the onslaught from T&T's bowling attack, ultimately succumbing for 97-7 in 20 overs.

The HOWZATT Super League T20 got off to a flier on Wednesday at Guaracarra Park in Trinidad. Canada's bats that struggled in the 3-day match came to life against the Caribbean T20 champions and Champion's League participants. Batting first, skipper Rizwan Cheema hit form with a swashbuckling 44 from 30 balls including 2 sixes. Cheema and Ruvindu Gunasekera (20) se tthe table and then Jimmy Hansra (40* 2 x 4s, 2 x 6s) and Damodar Daesrath (23 off 17) took Canada to their highest ever T20 total against T&T.
T&T went after the tricky target with some fervour and reached the target in the 16th over with Evin Lewis (53*) and Kjorn Ottley (61*) doing the damage for the hosts.
Match 2 of the Howzatt SuperLeague T20 goes Thursday also from Guaracarra Park

T&T continued their fine form in the 3-day match dismissing Canada for 191 on day 3 to win comfortably by an innings and 130 runs. Despite a great start from Canada's openers, only Hamza Tariq (31) and Junaid Siddiqui (24) were able to stage meaningful resistance but the target was just too much to ask.
Amit Jaggernauth was too much to handle for the Canadians picking up 6 wickets in the innings.
