Canada are Americas Twenty20 champions
Canada have confirmed themselves as the Americas Twenty20 champions with a win over Suriname that has left them unbeaten at the top of the table in Florida.
Batting first in the last game of the day, Canada raced to 116-2 in the 16th over when Parvin Saroye was the second man out. Khushroo Wadia had already retired hurt having scored 75 from 56 balls. The innings slowed down from that point, and Canada could only score another 22 runs before their 20 overs was up.
138 was still a tough target for Suriname, and they could only score 77-7 in response, Satsimranjit Dhindsa taking 2-8 from his 4 overs.
There will no doubt be some concern amongst the USA and Bermuda that Canada were still so much better than them even with a weaker side.
Those two teams played each other in the opening match of the day with Bermuda only managing to make 91-7 from their 20 overs, Lionel Cann top scoring with 32 from 29 balls.
The hosts chased down their target with four overs to spare to win by 7 wickets, Sushil Nadkarni scoring an unbeaten 39.
In the other match of the day, Argentina were confirmed as being relegated to Division Two, the Cayman Islands winning by 4 wickets after restricting Argentina to 90-7 from their 20 overs.
There are now only three places to be confirmed in the global Twenty20 qualifier, and they will be filled by the three top sides (other than Afghanistan) at the ACC Twenty20 Cup in Nepal in December.
