Canada v Nepal

Canada captain Jimmy Hansra said it felt good to post a win and get some points on the board.

"It was an exciting game, and a good all-round effort from the boys.

"It was one of the better batting efforts of the tournament more than six runs an over for 41 overs. Hopefully we can bat like that in our next match against Scotland," he said.

Canada's win came despite several dropped catches in the final few overs of the game. Hansra said that is something Canada will work on before the next match.

"We've got to do a lot better defending in the field. We'll pay for it if we drop catches like that against Scotland."

However, the skipper remained confident. "We've got a hill to climb to progress in this tournament, but we've got to go for it."

Today's loss was Nepal's fourth in row, and means that the side will miss out on the Super Six stage of the tournament.

Disappointed Nepal captain Paras Khadka said his team pushed hard for the win but had not been consistent enough. "Things really haven't gone well for us. We came to New Zealand really well prepared but we haven't executed our plans and we haven't played anywhere near to our potential."

"We need to show more consistency. We want to stay as highly ranked as possible, so we will continue to push ourselves in the remaining matches in the tournament," he said.

Namibia v Uganda

Man of the match van der Westhuizen, appearing in his first match of the tournament, was pleased with his performance.

"It was quite tough, with the ball seaming around so we just had to keep the composure and take it deep into the innings, and luckily I was able to do that."

The 25-year-old was confident ahead of his side's final group match against Papua New Guinea (PNG) on Thursday.

"We still have one game against PNG, so we'll prepare for that one and see if we can make it a whitewash in the group stages."

Uganda captain Davis Karashani Arinaitwe was disappointed with his side's batting. "I think as a side we bowled and fielded well to restrict Namibia to 160. Again, when it mattered most with the bat, we didn't pitch up. And the conditions became much windier by the second innings and the ball swung much more than it did earlier, and I guess we just couldn't cope with the swing."

Having completed its four matches of the group stages, Uganda will now be looking to the play-off stage of the tournament, to be played in Mount Maunganui.

"We've had a look on the ground that we're going to be playing on and we know what to expect, so we'll spend five days practicing and looking around, getting the guys to focus a bit. I think it's a very important game for us considering where we have come from, and that game will give us what we want to achieve. We're looking at a top eight finish; that would be at least satisfactory to us."
