Scorecard

Netherlands completed a hard-fought 45-run win in their Intercontinental Cup clash against Canada in Toronto. Legspinner Mangesh Panchal took four wickets - including top-scorer Qaiser Ali for 53 - as Netherlands completed an impressive turnaround having been in deep trouble on the third day.

After being two down overnight, Canada battled during the morning session and reached 105 for 2 before Mark Jonkman removed Trevin Bastiampillai for 46. Panchal then nailed Ali six runs later and the innings became more of a struggle for the Canadians.

Ashish Bagai, the captain, tried to hold the chase together with 38, but lost partners at regular intervals. Ashif Mulla became Panchal's second wicket and, with 97 wanted and five wickets standing, Sunil Dhaniram was caught behind of Jonkman for an enterprising 30.

Any lingering hopes Canada had of reaching their target disappeared when Bagai edged to Jeron Smits and the end came three overs later when Umar Bhatti was bowled by Panchal. Netherlands take 14 points for their victory and Canada leave with six.
