TOUGH START FOR VISITORS

SIDDIQUI - 34 AND 2-44 ON DAY 1

Junaid Siddiqui put on a brave showing for Canada scoring 34 at the bottom of the order and taking two wickets but played a lone hand as Canada's batsmen struggled after winning the toss and batting first at the National Cricket Centre. 

In Canada's first match of the tour, a 3-Dayer against a strong T&T side, skipper Jimmy Hansra backed his men to get off to a good start but  that was not to happen on a firm and easy paced pitch. Hiral Patel (17) fell to a yorker while Ruvindu Gunasekera (19) was caught hooking in the deep. Usman Limbada fell quickly at 3 while the captain departed shortly after leaving Canada sagging early on. Nitish Kumar  (22) attempted to stymie the rot but edged one to slip starting another mini collapse. Siddiqui and Hamza Tariq pulled Canada to a measure of respectability but it there was not much else in the offing as Canada were wrapped up in under 4 hours. 

In reply the hosts moved comfortably into the lead and ended the day at 194-3 after an Evan Lewis century. Jason Mohammed (25*) and captain Dinish Ramdin (1*) will resume for T&T in the morning.
