Canada won by 4 runs (D/L method)

Welcome back to Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club for the 1st of the two odi's, The news is that it is raining, the weekend was freezing cold, and now although its not as cold, it is raining

Its coming down a little harder, nothing much has changed, it might be a long delay, I will keep you updated

10:30 am Update: It is still raining, it is still dark outside, I will keep updating you, this is Gary Grewal

11:05 am Update: It is raining, but it is clearing up and it has become brighter, hopefully we will have some more news

11:15 am Update: Some good news, it has stopped raining, the groundsmen are on the square now, doing the mop up job

11:25 am Update: Unfortunately it's raining again, its been start-stop stuff so far, so I can't tell you anything firm, but will keep you in the loop

11:38 am Update: News is that we will have an early Lunch and then hopefully, sneak a 20 over game towards the evening, their is still a slight drizzle going on

11:55 am Update: And its raining again ! that all I am going to say

The team are outside now, signing autographs for a lot of youngsters who have came to watch the game, pictures are being taken with teams

Post Lunch Update: The rain has stopped, We are getting short sunny spells, but still some heavy rain clouds in the background. The umpires are outside having a look, the groundstaff is working full speed

One of the covers just came off, and I think they are working on the rest of them now

Covers are off now and there is no word about the inspection. We will keep you informed

More positive coming from the middle: Both the captains are out in the middle and toss will happen in a while

Good news: The match will start at 02:00 pm if there is no more rain and we will keep you informed about the number of overs to constitute an innings when we get to know it

It will be a 35-over affair. Ireland win the toss and are batting

Khurram Chohan to Dockrell, no run, beaten by that one, good ball

Khurram Chohan to Dockrell, 2 runs, miss hit falls short of long on, and they come back for a double, KC fails to collect the ball and releases the second

So a stiff target of 175 at 5 per over, Canada has the big hitters, it will worth it if they fire, we have a quick turn over before the second innings starts, so stay with me
