Canada 264 for 9 (Z Siddiqi 87, Burger 4-42, Williams 3-64) v Namibia
Canada's lower order put up a stiff resistance after Sarel Burger had rocked them with four wickets. Namibia chose to field and created immediate impact with the ball as Canada lost their first two wickets for 18. Canada lost a further two wickets to Burger and were reduced to 46 for 4. But a useful 112-run partnership between Zeeshan Siddiqi, who scored 87, and Tyson Gordon, who scored 42, pulled Canada out of trouble. However, Canada scoring more than 200 was largely due to a 55-run eighth-wicket partnership between captain Rizwan Cheema and Junaid Siddiqui.
Both teams are lingering at the bottom of the points table and this game presents an opportunity to score a win and catch up with the other sides.
