Canada vs Ireland Scorecard and Highlights: Post-match comments

Saad Bin Zafar: Very proud moment for the team. The way Kirton and Movva batted, we knew we had a good total to defend. We needed a good performance from the bowling unit and I am so proud on my bowlers for putting their hand up and delivering. The wicket got a bit slow today, so it worked to our advantage. We gambled with an extra spinner and I feel both myself and Junaid bowled really well. One game at a time, we need to enjoy this win and come back strong against Pakistan. We are here to play positive cricket. (On crowd support) It is very important, cricket is growing in our country and hopefully performances like this can inspire the younger generation to take up the sport.

Paul Stirling: Tough loss today, we weren't at the races today. The target was gettable, we didn't think we'd struggle too much. We were off in all three facets today, we need to show a better game when we go to Miami and Florida. We don't want to look too far into the future, we've got USA next.

Nicolas Kirton: The Pitch was a bit up and down but the ball was coming through okay. I think we have a defendable total. No, I would've liked to finish the innings (happy with his performance?). Before innings started we spoke about getting to 130-140 and anything else would be a bonus.

Canada vs Ireland Live Score and Updates: Comments at toss

Saad Bin Zafar: Would've bowled first as well. If we can put decent runs on the board, will not be easy to change. It's always good to see an associate country to beat a full member country. Hopefully what USA did to Pakistan, we can do to Ireland. If you play your A game on the day, you can beat anyone. One change - Nikhil Dutta goes out, Junaid Siddiqui comes in.

Paul Stirling: We're going to bowl first today. It's must win from here on. It's changed a lot since two days ago (talking about pitch). Looks like maybe there will be slightly less lateral movement. Has to be communication between keeper and bowler in the first couple of overs (about how the pitch is playing). White goes out. We've taken an extra seamer for the spinner.
