Canada have won their second CWC League 2 game today in Dubai with a seven wicket win over a Scottish side playing their first match in seven months.

Canadian captain Saad Bin Zafar won the toss and chose to bowl first. Scotland found runs hard to come by at the start and had scored just 22 when Andy Umeed - playing his first international in nine years - was out for eight in the eighth over. 

Fellow opener George Munsey lasted until the 31st over, but scored his runs slower than usual, facing 101 balls and scoring 68. Contributiuons also came from Matthew Cross (30) and Micheal Leask (40) as Scotland scored 215-8 from their 50 overs.

Canada's reply started in much quicker fashion with Aaron Johnson hitting a 28 ball 43 as part of an opening partnership with Srimantha Wijeyeratne before falling in the ninth over. 

Wijeyeratne then added 115 for the second wicket with Pargat Singh before being dismissed for 56, Singh finishing the innings unbeaten on 87. Harsh Thaker finished things off with a six to secure the seven wicket win with 9.3 overs to spare.

Canada played like a team that had a busy preparation tour to Hong Kong and Nepal, whilst Scotland played like a team that hadn't played in seven months. The result was almost inevitable.

Scotland play next on Sunday when they take on hosts UAE, with Canada's next game being on Tuesday, also against the UAE.
