Easy victories for Bermuda, Canada and USA on Day Two of ICC Americas U/19 Qualifier
Bermuda, Canada and USA maintained its winning streak on Day Two of the ICC Americas U/19 Regional Qualifier in Toronto on Tuesday. With only two places available to progress to the ICC Global Qualifier, the three teams will soon begin to feel the pressure and that could come as early as Wednesday when Bermuda tangles with USA.
Cayman Islands v Bermuda:
Bermuda skipper Regino Smith (34) and Man of the Match Deunte Darrell (33) top-scored for their side to post a modest but formidable target of 218-9 in their 50 overs. Skipper Ramon Sealy was the pick of the bowlers for Cayman Islands with figures of 3-16.
Cayman Islands, in reply could only manage a modest 103 all out with Bermuda?s Joshua Gilbert taking 3-25. The top scorer was Darren Cato with only 14 runs as Bermuda cruised to a 115-run victory.
Bahamas v Canada
Electing to bat first, Bahamas found the Canadian bowling difficult to get away with and even though they defended well they were unable to force the bowlers off the line and were all out for 118. Orlando Stuart scored an impressive 31 for his team. Canada?s Nitesh Kumar captured 3-18 while Riayzhan Pathan took 2-19 and Hiral Patel finished with 2-27.
Canada was once again impressive in the chase as its top order ensured a good opening. Patel (79) posted another half century, his second in two matches to help his side post the required runs in 16.3 overs. He was the obvious pick for Man of the Match as Canada coasted to a nine-wicket victory.
Argentina v USA
USA put on a stellar performance once again to record an easy nine-wicket victory over Argentina. The boys from South America batted first and despite a fine innings of 35 by skipper Alejo Tissera, the team was all out for a modest score of just 116 in 34 overs. Talha Zamir was impressive with his 4-21 and was the top bowler for USA.
In reply, Man of the Match Ryan Corns scored an explosive 58 not out in 40 balls which included eight fours and two sixes and was ably supported by Henry Wardley, top run-getter from the last game, who scored 37. Argentina?s poor bowling performance cost it dearly as USA achieved the set total in just 13.2 overs.
