Jyoti and Bagai steer Canada to victory

Gavin Hamilton and Fraser Watts scored hundreds for the hosts but their efforts were overshadowed by Canada's centurion, Sandeep Jyoti, and Ashish Bagai who pulled off the chase with eight balls to spare

Fraser Watts101 (108)
Canada287/4(48.4 overs)
Sandeep Jyoti117 (122)
Ashish Bagai*92 (111)

Well that's it. What a great run chase from Canada after Scotland set them an ambitious target of 287 for victory. After centuries from Watts and Hamilton it looked like the Canadians wouldn't have a chance but the visitors came out fighting and matched

Scotland blow-for-blow all the way eventually passing the finishing line with 8 balls to spare

Match State: Stumps

The Scottish team look dejected and head off for a warm-down job while the Canadian team are partying in the dressing room and have Jyoti who hit 117 and their skipper Bagai on 92* to thank for their efforts.

Do join us at the same time here tomorrow where the teams do it all over again in the second ODI where the Scots will look for revenge while the Canadians will want to take the series 2-0.

Thanks for joining us here on cricinfo but for now it's goodbye from me Callum Stewart. See you tomorrow for the second ODI between Scotland and Canada and that other game.
