Batting first Canada squandered a hot start from Ruvindu Gunasekera (29) and used a late flourish from Rizwan Cheema 31 to post a total of 129. While Canada would have expected more the total was a defend-able one and Canada were encouraged by Jamaica defending a small total on Tuesday.
A little slip up in the first few overs with some drop catches would not deter the Canadians however as sharp fielding and great bowling from Parth Desai (2-15), Cheema (2-27), Jimmy Hansra (1-14) and Harvir Baidwan (1-21) ensured that Hampshire never got close, as they closed at 106-8.
For his efforts, Parth Desai was named the man of the match.
The two teams have met only once before over 100 years ago in a match that was drawn.
