Canada 340 for 9 dec and 151 for 6 dec beat Cayman Islands 159 and 212 by 120 runs
It was always going to be an uphill battle for the Caymans, who needed 295 more to win at the start of the third day. Unlike in their first-innings collapse, most of their batsmen got off to starts with Pearson Best making an impressive 53. But none of the batsmen were in complete control of the Canadian spinners - Dhaniram and Kevin Sandher - and folded for 212 in 68.5 overs. Sandher snapped up 3 for 51 while Dhaniram dismantled the lower order with 5 for 20 from his 15.5 overs.
The final points table saw Bermuda with 62 points, followed by Canada with 51 and the Cayman Islands with 23. Bermuda will now represent the Americas at the semi-finals in Namibia in October.
