Canada's fill-in skipper Damodar Daesrath smashed a 104 ball century which included 7 boundaries and 6 sixes to help take Canada to a respectable 252 runs from 49 overs.  Damodar replaced Canada's regular limited over captain, Rizwan Cheema, who was deemed unfit for play due to an undisclosed lower body injury.  

Canada also received a usefull batting contribution from wicketkeeper batsman Ashish Bagai, returning to the international side for the first time since the 2011 Cricket World Cup, who notched a patient 56 runs from 101 balls. 

Play was unfortunately haulted at the innings break due to heavy rain.
