Kanishkaa Balachandran

Canada won their first game of the tournament, beating Argentina by 9 wickets in a rain interrupted match. Canada were required to score 137 in 33 overs, following a disruption to their innings. John Davison, the captain, made an attacking 53 off 34 balls and Sandeep Jyoti made an undefeated 46 in miserable conditions. Canada bowled fairly tidily in restricting Argentina to 182 for the loss of 8 wickets in 50 overs. Opening bowler Steve Welsh bowled a tidy spell, conceding just 18 runs in his 10 overs and picking up two wickets. Alejandro Ferguson top-scored for Argentina with an unbeaten 49.
