Zimbabwe XI 351 (Ervine 177, Bhatti 6-98) beat Canada 129 (Cheema 46, Chatara 3-21) and 149 (Tariq 39, Chatara 3-18, Masakadza 5-58) by an innings and 73 runs
Canada were no match for the Zimbabweans as they dished out yet another disappointing batting performance to crash to an innings defeat at the Maple Leaf North-West ground. Shingirai Masakadza was the main wicket-taker with a five-wicket haul and he was supported by Tendai Chatara, who took three wickets.
Resuming at 49 for 3, Canada lost Trevin Bastiampillai for the addition of 24 runs. Masakadza then claimed the other overnight batsman, Hemnarine Chattergoon before Chatara took out Usman Limbada. When the captain Rizwan Cheema fell soon after, Canada had lost three wickets for no runs. Masakadza claimed Henry Osinde to finish with 5 for 58, before Hamza Tariq's run-out, for 39, brought the match to a conclusion early on the final day.
