Canada’s 168 for 5 (Thaker 38, van Schalkwyk 2-42) was defeated by USA 169 for 6 (Nitish 64, Anderson 55, Thaker 2-20) by 4 wickets.

USA were reduced to 9 for 3 in their chase of 169, but Anderson and opener Nitish Kumar combined for a partnership of 104 runs. With a 48-ball 55 in his second match for the USA, Anderson was the main man. He hit six fours and two sixes. Out of the two, Nitish was the more aggressive player, hitting four sixes and as many fours in his 38-ball 64.

Even after Anderson was removed by off-spinner Harsh Thaker, Nitish persisted. Even though Shadley van Schalkwyk and Nitish were out in four balls, Harmeet Singh and Nisarg Patel easily concluded the match in the last over.

With the exception of opener Srimantha Wijeyeratne, all of Canada’s batters received starts and scored at least fifteen, but nobody was able to add more runs to the score. With three players reaching their thirties, Thaker emerged as their highest scorer with a 24-ball 38 that included three sixes. Thaker also claimed two wickets.

Canada continued to form brilliant partnerships, preventing the USA from picking up wickets in bunches. Canada had momentum going into the innings break thanks to an undefeated 39-run stand for the sixth wicket.

Andries Gous was leg before wicket (LBW) on the second delivery by Rishiv Joshi as the USA continued to build momentum. The series’ top run scorer, Aaron Jones, was bowled out by Canada skipper Saad Bin Zafar with the opening delivery of the second over. Gajanand Singh was then caught behind the next ball, giving him a hat-trick and putting Canada in a commanding position.

However, in the end, just like throughout the series, the USA proved to be too strong for Canada.
