KARACHI: The visiting Canadian Seniors went down fighting in their latest match of the Pakistan tour here at the NBP Sports Complex the other day.

According to the information made available by the Pakistan Veterans Cricket Association (PVCA) here on Thursday, Canada Seniors were beaten by five wickets by Factdate Engineering in their fourth outing in the metropolis.

Electing to bat first after winning the toss, the visitors found themselves in trouble right away as their first three batsmen perished without scoring. They, however, recovered to reach a respectable total of 176 before being bowled out in the final over.

Skipper Talal Iqbal, who had led his team to victory against Gold Bridge Media, starred with the bat again as he smashed one six and five fours in his 44 off 41 balls. He was supported by Mahmood Ahmed, who also made 44, striking six boundaries in his 33-ball knock. The damage to their innings was caused by medium pacers Muhammad Javed (3-18) and Rizwan Merchant (3-24).

The Canadians hit back by claiming a few wickets but their opponents ran away with the game after opener Imran Ansari had scored 51 off 28 balls, hitting 12 fours. The winning runs came in the 24th over with five wickets in hand.

The visiting 15-member squad of over-40 cricketers will play their fifth and final match of the Karachi leg against Rashid Latif Veterans at the UBL Sports Complex before moving to Lahore where they will be playing matches against Lahore Gymkhana, Turk Plast, Amar Cables and Punjab Veterans.
