Canada v Bermuda - Day 4 Scores

LIVE SCORES - (6:00 p.m.)
Match Over
Bermuda 334 & 310
Canada 588 & 60/1

Canada win by 9 wickets

Last Wickets:

L Cann out 30
R Steede out 12
D Leverock out 1

No confirmation as to who batted for Canada, more to come on that tonight. But the result is in, Canada, victorious, by nine wickets. Huge win for Canada, top of the table by far. I'm off to dinner, see you all tonight!

Captain Romaine and former captain Smith have stabilized the Bermudans and are digging in for a long session of defence at the wicket, as the visitors attempt to bat out the day and end this match in a draw. It seems that Romaine is keeping the majority of the strike, perhaps Smith is not feeling comfortable? Still a long way for them to go, and if Canada could pick up a few wickets quickly after lunch it could be a very interesting conclusion. The only wicket to have fallen in the extended morning session was that of Stephen Outerbridge who was caught by Maxwell off the bowling of Osinde.

It will be an exciting day at Maple Leaf CC in King City today as Canada attempt to secure a second outright victory in the 2006 Intercontinental Cup. Yesterday the Canadians built a 254 run first innings lead, but Bermuda gave themselves a fighting chance scoring 67 runs for just one wicket before rain washed out most of the third session. Realistically, Bermuda are likely playing for a draw as even if they can reach the Canadian total, Canada has another innings to come back. The home side will hope that a fourth day pitch makes it difficult for the batsmen and that the combination of pace from Bhatti and Osinde and spin from Davison and Dhaniram will be enough to earn th victory.

The weather looks very good - not a cloud in the sky and no rain forecast for the rest of the day. Play will begin half an hour earlier (10:00 EDT) than usual to attept to make up for lost play yesterday. This, coupled with a possible extra half hour in the evening if a result is nearing means we may see a whopping 112 overs bowled today - a long time for Bermuda to defend! Our man Dhushy will be on the ground again today, and supplying scoring updates which will be posted right here. Stay tuned!!!

  • Im gonna be glued to this page all day. thank you very much!

  • Unfortunately, it sounds as though Dhushy will be unable to send any more updates. Anyone else going up that can do it? Maybe I'll have to "get sick" and leave work early....

    Until then, I'll do what I can through other sources.

  • very cool. let me know.

  • Clay Smith is Bermuda's Jon Davison. Albeit on a bad knee and with an extra rubber tire around his waist but all of Bermuda is expecting him and waiting for him to regain his form. If he goes early I would expect a victory for Canada. However, he is the one player who is capable of handling the task at hand .

  • Good analysis.

    Speaking of spare tires, how about Dwayne Leverock's??? He is a LARGE man in every sense of the word. It's fun watching him chase balls to the boundary though. Also watching him turn a 2 or 3 into a single when he is batting.

    By Blogger JWilly, at 1:53 PM  

  • Yes,
    But his bowling figures speak for him. He bowled a whopping 48+ overs yesterday with and economy rating of 2.79. This is remarkable for a man of his size on a pitch that apparently wasn't offering much. He has been known to make an acrobatic catch or two as well. So far this cricket season the wickets have not come for him (not even in domestic Cricket here in Bermuda). Without him though the bowling attack is inconsistent at best. It is a bit frustrating when he is in the middle though.

  • hmmm........ interesting lol ... dont understand much cricket

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 3:03 PM  

  • You don't understand or I don't understand much cricket?

    Either way... At least there is hope for all of us who shop in the plus size stores. If he can do it we all can!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 3:11 PM  

  • he is a ridiculous bowler.I remember him in last year's IC against Canada just killing us in our second innings. BUT I hope he's the last wicket to fall today, leaving Canada 8 overs to chase 70 runs, SLOG AWAY BOYS!

  • You should come out and watch a game! Next week the ICC Americas Championship tournament is in Toronto. One day matches are easier to understand than first class, and it's over in one day. Come find me, I'll be the white guy in a red shirt (who's NOT playing)

    By Blogger JWilly, at 3:46 PM  

  • well guess wat .. i came to the last day of 4 day with kenya... that day was the hottest day in toronto's history .. n i came straight from work .. n i was a toast........ a burnt toast lol ...

  • Well you may be out of luck then. You can see the schedule on the right margin of this blog. Canada's next game (ODI against Bermuda) is on Saturday

    By Blogger JWilly, at 3:58 PM  

  • :( I m gone ..... better luck next time :) ... but I'll check scores Aug 21st onwards ... and keep posting comments

  • Is there any update? Has Clay cracked? Are they on the verge of another 20 points?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 4:12 PM  

  • No updates to speak of. Believe me I am in as much pain as you are. My guess is Clay is still in and strong and wil get them to a draw. I HOPE not though!

    By Blogger JWilly, at 4:20 PM  

  • wat is a draw????

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 4:24 PM  

  • The match is scheduled for 4 days. If it reaches the end of the 4 days (which will happen at 6:00 tonight) without a winner being decided, the match is a draw. If Bermuda does not get out, it is a draw. If they get out and Canada has more runs (or bats and gets to more runs) Canada wins. If Bermuda gets out (with more runs than Canada) and then gets Canada all out (this is not going to happen today) then Bermuda wins.

  • bermuda are 291/7 and lead by 37 runs smith is out for 84

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 4:46 PM  

  • we should all be able to watch this on T.V., this is classic cricket unfolding and a damn shame we can't watch it

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 4:59 PM  

  • Agreed. Everyone write letters to the CCA, TSN, Sportsnet, OMNI, The Score, etc. If enough people demand it, it's more likely to happen. (Even pay per view would be fine by me!)

    By Blogger JWilly, at 5:01 PM  

  • I think I know about 15,000 homes in Bermuda that would purchase a pay per view event like this if it was available! With the growing East Indian and West Indian populations in Canada I don't understand why the media outlets have not picked up on a potentialy lucrative arrangement! Maybe this blog will get the ball rolling so to speak! Are you going to be blogging the one day games as well? Sometimes www.islandstats.com updates are ahead of yours and sometimes you are ahead of thiers. They also have some nice pics!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 5:50 PM  

  • On Saturday and Sunday islandstats were using my blog as their source for live scores. yesterday and today, they have been one of my sources. I think it worked out well. For the ODIs, I am going to be (HOPEFULLY - cross your fingers) getting a hookup for my laptop so I can post more detailed scores and information directly from the site. More on that as the details become finalized.

    By Blogger JWilly, at 5:53 PM  

  • Great,
    My fingers are crossed!

    The only problem now is what to do about work...If I didn't own the company I work for I'd call in sick. What would actually work out well is if you updated the site at regular time intervals. If I knew the updates were coming every 20 minutes (or something like that) then I wouldn't have to be such a knob hitting refresh every 30 seconds! I don't know if that is to much to ask but you are really doing a great job! Thanks a million!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:01 PM  

  • This suspense is killing me!!!

    Well, on Saturday and Monday, I should be updating constantly (like every over, if not every ball). So you can check whenever you want! Now if only this match would end - I'm late for dinner!
