  • Now then, the target is a challenging one and Nigeria will have to bat really well if they are to chase this down. Canada are probably favorites to defend it and anything other than that will be a surprise. Do join us in a short while for the second innings.
  • Nitish Kumar is down for a quick interview. Thinks his approach was what got him going after a not so good start. Feels that they have gotten to the target they wanted to achieve and he is confident that they can defend this. Further adds that he does not feel dew is a big factor tonight and they should look to stick to their basics. Ends by saying that they want to be known as a positive and aggressive team and he thinks that they are going in the right direction.
  • The Nigerian bowling wasn't that great. Except for Abiodun Abioye and Daniel Ajekun, the rest were very inconsistent with their lines and lengths. Their fielding also did not help as there were too many misfields and dropped catches. Overall, they need to improve a lot in this aspect of the game.
  • Some lusty blows in the last few overs have seen Canada post a total which one feels is just above par. However, they could have scored a little more after their top order got them off to a decent start. However, they did lose their way in the middle, an excellent cameo by Tariq and a stable knock from Kumar have given them the score which they would have wanted after electing to bowl.
  • 19.6 OUT! Taken, no it has been put down, no it is taken in the end! A wicket to end a very good last over. A slower one outside off, Tariq swings hard but does not get it right off the middle. It goes high up in the air towards long off where the fielder looks to take it but the ball pops out. It then hits his face and then lobs up. He takes it on the second attempt. CANADA END WITH 159/7!
  • 19.5 Another couple! This is hit down powerfully towards long on and the batters take two as the fielder there has fumbled.
  • 19.4 A very good slower one there! It is outside off, Tariq swings but misses.
  • 19.3 Very full and on middle, this is hit down to long on for one.
  • 19.2 In the air... it falls safe! A slower one outside off, Kumar swings but is early in the shot. It goes high up in the air but lands safe in the mid on region. Two taken.
  • 19.1 Fuller and outside off, this is hit hard down towards long off. Two is the call but they need to settle for one.
  • 18.6 A single to end as Tariq drops it towards the off side and gets to the other end. 153/6
  • 18.5 SIX! That is a flat one! 35 runs from the last 11 balls. This is carnage. Shorter and outside off, Tariq slaps it hard and it goes over the cover fence.
  • 18.4 A slower one which is extremely full and on off, Tariq hits it to the cover fielder. A dot, rare one.
  • 18.3 Full and wide outside off, Tariq carves it over point for another two.
  • 18.2 Good running! A slower one on off, Tariq waits for it and guides it through covers. Some excellent running sees them take two.
  • 18.1 SIX! That has made a cracking sound off the bat and it has gone a long way. This is right in the zone. Full and on middle, Tariq whips it over the mid-wicket fence for a maximum. Pressure on the bowler now, a biggie to begin the over.
  • 17.6 On a good length on middle, Tariq looks to flick but gets an inside edge. It goes towards the leg side for a run. 19 runs have come from the over. Big one for Canada. 136/6

  • 16.6 A dot to end another good over. Very full and on off, this is driven to covers. 117/6

  • 16.4 This is flatter and on middle, it is worked through square leg for another two.
  • 16.3 Overthrow! A low full toss on off, this is drive through covers. The batters take one and then the striker wants the second. He is sent back. The fielder in the deep fires the throw to the keeper who fails to stop it cleanly and another run is taken.
  • Hamza Tariq is the next batsman in.
  • 16.2 OUT! Another one bites the dust! LBW! This starts on off and then it drifts back in. It is fuller in length. Bin Zafar looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. An appeal and up goes the finger. Canada losing their way here. 150 looks farfetched now.
