United Arab Emirates kept their unbeaten record on their tour to Canada intact, defeating the hosts by 72 runs in the first Twenty20 in Toronto.

Choosing to bat, UAE piled up 157 for 7, a total built around opener Mohammad Azam's 51-ball 70. Azam and Abdul Shakoor gave UAE a strong start, sharing a stand of 42. However, regular wickets in the latter half of the innings weakened UAE's chances of posting a bigger score. Swapnil Patil and Shaiman Anwar, who had been in good form coming into the match, fell for 11 and 13. UAE had another setback when Azam and Amjad Javed were out in consecutive deliveries to pacer Harvir Baidwan in the 17th over. Azam's 70 included nine fours and one six. Nasir Aziz and Ahmed Raza hit some quick runs towards the end to take the score past 150.

A quickfire 48 from Hiral Patel and some steady batting from Ruvindu Gunasekera allowed Canada to make quick work of the 134-8 set by the CIBC NCL All-Stars in the first match of the CIBC NCL All Star Series at Toronto Cricket Skating and Club.

Winning the toss and electing to batt, All-Star Captain Rizwan Cheema was unable to get his troops going as Patel (4-19) was stellar with the ball pegging the All-Stars back to 86-6 before a late flourish from Jimmy Hansra brought them to a respectable total of 134.

A solid start from Canada was all that was needed before Patel's fireworks sealed the match with an over to spare.

The teams are back at it tomorrow afternoon at 3:30pm ET from TCSCC and broadcast LIVE on Rogers TV and Sportsnet.ca
