Pakistan have kept their hopes of a Super 8 place alive with a straightforward win over Canada in the penultimate match at the "pop up" Nassau County International Cricket Stadium.

It was another low scoring game at the venue, with Canada put into bat and being restricted to 106-7 from their 20 overs. Aaron Johnson batted well to make 52 from 44 balls but no other batter made a contribution of note.

That does have the potential to be a winning score at this ground, but Pakistan made short work of their target. A 63 run partnership between Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam for the second wicket laid much of the groundwortk before Azam was out for 33.

Rizwan finished the innings unbeaten on 53 as his team completed a seven wicket win with 15 balls to spare.

The win does keep Pakistan's hopes of reaching the Super 8 stage alive, but with rain threatening the three games in this group to be played in Lauderhill, it may not be enough.

Canada's final pool game will be against India at the Florida ground on Saturday morning, whilst Pakistan finish their group stage when they take on Ireland in another must win game on Sunday morning.
