Canada's Women secured a 77 run victory over Bermuda in their second match at the ICC Americas Women's T20 Championship on Tuesday.

After being sent in to bat, Canada amassed 150-8 in the allotted 20 overs with Durriya Shabbir (29), Joanna White (18), and Sheryl Tittlemier (18) all providing contributions.  Errant Bermudan bowling provided the largest contribution to the Canadian figures with 34 extras. 

The Bermudan reply was stunted early and they struggled to reach 73 for 7 from 20 overs, Lorraine Kenton (3 wickets) and Joanna White (2 wickets) did the share of the damage.

17 year old Mikaela Turik (NSW, Australia) again stood in as captain for Suthershini Sivanantham (Montreal, PQ) who went down with a shoulder injury in training prior to Monday's contest with Brazil.
