Canada got bundled for 67 earlier today, the wicket was playing all kinds of tricks in the first hour of the day, the Dutch did well to utilize the conditions Canada did put up a show in this tour, its a pitty that they couldn't wrap it up in style, all eyes move to Afghanistan and the Scots (according to Peter Della Penna) to see who will qualify. It has been a pleasure bringing you the cricket from up here.

Gary Grewal signing off ! Have a great year ! see you all next season !
