Canada's second and final warmup match of the  World T20 Qualiifiers ended in a shocking defeat as Bermuda chased down Canada's target of 182 with 3 wickets to spare on the last ball of the innings. 

Batting first behind a swashbuckling 60 (50 balls) from HIral Patel and 28 (13 balls) from Ruvindu Gunaskera, Canada raced to 30-1 inside 3 overs. The pace didn't slow as Ashish Bagai  (47) put on 134 with Patel for the second wicket taking the score to 167-3 before Canada ran out of balls at 182-5 from 20 overs. 

Bermuda were in trouble at 46-3 but recovered behind some stellar middle order batting to get close. With 19 required off the last over, Kwame Tucker and Kamau Leverock took their side over the line with some clean hitting and a bit of good fortune to shock the Canadians.
