Bagai leads Canada fightback
Fri, Sep 3, 2010 10:49 AM
A brilliant partnership between Ashish Bagai and Khurram Chohan gave Canada hope of securing an amazing win over Ireland in the ICC Intercontinental Cup.
The pair put on 121 runs for the ninth wicket with Bagai (90) and Chohan (59) helping set Ireland a target of 176 for victory.
Both Irish openers fell early before Andre Botha held the innings together with an excellent 61, before he was run out just before the close after rain finished play early.
Ireland, who closed on 124-4, needs 52 more runs for victory with one day of play still remaining.
