Canada breezed by Denmark on Monday with an agressive 95 run performance from opening batsmen Ruvindu Gunasekera and a supportive 43 run innings from Hiral Patel.

Coach Michael DIghton was happy to back in the wins after a heavy defeat to Afghanistan on Sunday.

"An excellent win by the boys today and a real confidence boost ahead of our must win game against Nepal tomorrow. Ruvindu and Hirals' 109 run partnership was outstanding and what we have been looking for, with both playing good innings. Tyson Gordon hit the last ball for 6 to give us momentum going into our bowling innings. He has to be the fastest runner between wickets in world cricket! Big Henry was the pick of the bowlers and generated considerable pace."

Canada now face Nepal on Tuesday in what will be a one match showdown with former Canadian Coach Pubudu Dassanayke for a chance to enter the playoff stage of the tournament.
