PATEL BLASTS CANADA SELECT TO VICTORY
A quickfire 48 from Hiral Patel and some steady batting from Ruvindu Gunasekera allowed Canada to make quick work of the 134-8 set by the CIBC NCL All-Stars in the first match of the CIBC NCL All Star Series at Toronto Cricket Skating and Club.
Winning the toss and electing to batt, All-Star Captain Rizwan Cheema was unable to get his troops going as Patel (4-19) was stellar with the ball pegging the All-Stars back to 86-6 before a late flourish from Jimmy Hansra brought them to a respectable total of 134.
A solid start from Canada was all that was needed before Patel's fireworks sealed the match with an over to spare.
The teams are back at it tomorrow afternoon at 3:30pm ET from TCSCC and broadcast LIVE on Rogers TV and Sportsnet.ca
