Pakistan beat Canada


New Delhi: Captain Shahid Afridi registered his fifth five-wicket haul as Pakistan beat Canada by 46 runs in their World Cup clash at the Premadasa stadium  in Colombo on March 3.

Chasing 185, Canada got off to a poor start losing their first three wickets with 44 runs on the board in 17.1 overs. With a 60-run partnership for the fourth wicket, Surkari and Jimmy Hansra steadied Canada before the Pakistani spinners struck in quick succession.
