For Canada, Jeremy Gordon and Dillon Heyliger each took two wickets, while Junaid Siddiqui and captain Saad bin Zafar each took one wicket.
In the first innings, Canada set a target of 138 runs. They had a bad start as the Irish bowlers did well, removing the top batters in the first nine overs for just 53 runs. It looked like it would be a low-scoring game, but Nicholas Kirton and Shreyas Movva helped Canada recover.

Kirton and Movva had a 75-run partnership that helped Canada reach a good total. Kirton played well but got out for 49 runs, just missing his half-century. Movva stayed until the end and Canada finished with 137 runs for 7 wickets.
