Cayman Islands 159 (Henry 7-53) and 38 for 1 need another 295 runs with 9 wickets remaining v Canada 340 for 9 dec and 151 for 6 dec (Qaiser 67*)
Osinde Henry, the medium-pacer, rattled the Cayman Island batting line-up with a seven-wicket haul as Canada were on course to a comprehensive victory in the Intercontinental Cup match at Toronto.
Along with Umar Bhatti, the left-arm medium-pacer, Osinde destroyed the Cayman line-up in just 54.1 overs. Osinde finished with an impressive 7 for 53, his best figures, and the Caymans collapsed for 159, still trailing by 181 runs. Canada soon rattled up 151 in quick time in their second innings, with Qaiser Ali producing a steady 67 and set Caymans an improbable target of 333 in their final innings.
The Caymans were in further trouble in their second innings and finished at 38 for 1 at the close of play.
