Canada well beaten by Zimbabwe A

Canada were well beaten by Zimbabwe A in their final warm-up match ahead of next week’s ICC World Cup Qualifiers. After winning the toss, Canada slipped to 35 for 4 after 15 overs and even though Sandeep Jyoti (32) helped them stumble past a hundred, their eventual total of 142 from 48.1 overs was never likely to be enough. Zimbabwe A, fresh from a successful tour of Namibia, lost wickets steadily, but an unbeaten 61 from Mbekezeli Mabuza steered them to a six-wicket win.
