Canada won their fifth game in a row in the ICC Americas Region Division One Twenty20 tournament, trouncing Suriname by 61 runs at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Lauderhill. Having been asked to bat, opener Khushroo Wadia led the way with a 75 from 56 balls, including five fours and three sixes, to set up Canada's total of 138 for 4. Suriname lost Sauid Drepaul off the first ball of the innings and quick fell behind the asking rate. With wickets also falling at regular intervals, Suriname limped to 77 for 7 from their 20 overs. Satsimranjit Dhindsa was the pick of the bowlers, taking 2 for 8.

Cayman Islands kept Argentina winless in the tournament by beating them by four wickets with two balls to spare at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Lauderhill. Argentina crawled to 90 for 7 from their 20 overs, with only Donald Forrester, who made 22, able to score at more than a-run-a-ball. Cayman Islands made steady progress, and despite a middle-order wobble where three wickets fell for 15 runs, picked up two points for the win and moved to fourth in the table.

USA rebounded from their narrow loss to Canada by beating Bermuda by seven wickets at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Lauderhill to move into second place in the points table. USA chose to field and a disciplined bowling attack held Bermuda to 91 for 7. Left-arm spinner Bhim George finished with 2 for 12 to lead the bowlers, while Muhammad Ghous and Samarth Shah also took two wickets each. Opener Sushil Nadkarni led the chase with an unbeaten 39 as USA overhauled their target with four overs to spare.
