In a late start to game 4 of the ICC Americas U15 Northern Division Championship, Bermuda won the toss and elected to bat on a warm and windy day in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. Bermuda lost an early wicket when Keishun Smith was LBW to Rutvij Bhise when the score was only 8. A second wicket stand of 65 runs between Joshua Commissiong (17) and Delray Rawlins (39) steered the batting side to 82 runs before Commissioning was run out for 16 runs. Bermuda lost 2 more quick wickets and was reeling at 85 for 4 wickets before Alex Dore (24) and Janhoi Bean- Wilson (30) added 59 runs for the fifth wicket. Gibbons-Wade had a fiery knock scoring 23 runs from 11 balls later to take the total to 213 for 7 wickets in 40 overs. Bowling for the Americans Rutvij Bhise 2 for 30 had the best figures.
The USA replied with 189 in 36.2 overs. This was largely due to a valiant effort by Gordon Makin who scored 65 runs with support from Jason Gobin 22 and Vibhav Altekar 26.
Christion Gibbons–Wade took 5 wickets for 35 runs and Joshua Liyanage 2 for 40 runs.
