The wicket of the Rizwan Cheema early in the innings allowed Scotland to get on top of the Canadian batsman as they struggled to hit the ball to the boundary throughout their innings.

Gunasekera looked in good form before he guided a Jan Stander delivery to Majid  Haq at backward point and only really Baidwan troubled the Scotland bowlers with 20 before Haq again claimed his wicket. Haq then bowled Bhatti with his next delivery, before Desai negotiated the hat-trick ball.
 
Majid Haq has been one of Scotland’s top performers with the ball as he finished the tournament with a total of 17 wickets to finish the tournament as the tournaments leading wicket taker.
 
Canada completed their 20 overs on 135/8, Moneeb Iqbal bounced back from the disappointment of the previous day to return with figures of 4-0-15-2 while Richie Berrington took 2 wickets from 2 overs which only cost 14 runs.
