Canada lose first match of Auty Cup
Canada lost the opening match of the best of three Auty Cup series today. They were bowled out for a sub-par 141, and the USA overtook their total for the loss of five wickets with 10 overs to spare.
Canada lost the toss and were put in to bat. Wijeyratne top-scored with 29 and Dhindsa (24) and Saad Bin Zafar (23) made useful contributions from the lower order. The middle order could not handle the medium pace bowling of debutant Roy Silva (4/32 in 10 overs). Canada were bowled out for just 141. The USA had little trouble chasing down the total, losing five wickets in the process. Silva again starred with an unbeaten 38, and was clearly man of the match.
Game 2 is scheduled for Wednesday, with a 10 am start.
