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

National team head coach Gus Logie offered his thoughts on the recently conluded CIBC National Cricket League 50 over and T20 Championship and looks forward to the CIBC NCL All-Star Series which starts Thursday July 4th at Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club.

This years NCL was a great success both on and off the field with many new initiatives introduced in the 2nd year of the tournament..

Firstly, the introduction of foreign players from Trinidad & Tobago plus joining the continued distribution of HP players and two u19 players into each regional side made for a much more competitive tournament.

The advent of television coverage of the T20 format and the introduction of the NCL All Star series provide more incentive for players to make a name for themselves and address the National selectors.

We had our first century and two five wicket hauls of this tournament, we had scores in excess of 270 in the 50 overs, scores of 170 plus in the T20 games and a tie game which was decided on a super over. 

The Western Stallions were crowned champions in both formats.  They won the 50 overs format by net run rate over Central Shield (both teams finished with the same points), and added to their 50 over title with a one run, last ball victory over the Central Shield in T20 final.

Also of note: Most of the individual awards were won by High Performance players. Though others made a name for themselves during the tournament, most have been rewarded with selection to the Canada Select and CIBC NCL All-Star Teams.

My congratulations to all for making the 2013 CIBC National Cricket League a great success and we look forward to the future with much anticipation and expectation for bigger, better and  brighter cricket.

- GUS LOGIE
