Borren keeps Netherlands fighting

Canada 337 for 9 dec and 44 for 2 (Bastiampillai 21*, Qaiser Ali 14*) need 227 more runs to beat Netherlands 297 and 310 (Borren 105*)
Scorecard

Peter Borren struck his maiden first-class century as Netherlands staged an outstanding fightback against Canada in their Intercontinental Cup match in Toronto. With four wickets remaining, Netherlands' lead stood at 98 but Borren and the lower order extended it to a healthy 270.

Two early wickets from Henry Osinde plunged Netherlands into trouble on 66 for 5 before Borren, born and brought up in New Zealand, set about his recovery operation. He added 72 with Mudassar Bukhari and 73 with Jeron Smits, who faced 107 balls for his 8. Borren's century included 17 fours and a six, but even when he and Smits fell within the space of three balls Canada couldn't wrap up the innings.

Mark Jonkman struck seven boundaries in his 43 as the last two wickets added a priceless 99 runs. However, Canada didn't help themselves by dropping four catches and conceding 44 extras.

Borren's fine day continued when he removed Shahzad Khan early in Canada's run chase, following Geoff Barnett's run out for 0, leaving an intriguing final day in prospect as Canada search for a further 227 runs.
