ICC Cricket World Cup 2011: Pakistan vs Canada live streaming

Pakistan have registered another victory in the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, with a 46-run victory over Canada. Here is the final scorecard (Pakistan 184 (43 overs) defeated Canada 138 (42.5 overs) by 46 runs)
Update: innings break – Canada have put up a good performance with the ball getting Pakistan all out for just 184 runs in 43 overs. Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi won the toss and elected to bat first against Canada, in the 17th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 tournament.
An interesting game, where Canada need a victory, after having lost both their previous games. Pakistan have been so far undefeated, and are among the tournament’s favorites. But with South Africa vs Netherlands currently in progress, this game gets less attention. South Africa, labeled as the archetypal chokers in international cricket, need the victory today, as much as they need to end up this tournament as champions. Pakistan and Canada lined up the following teams:
Pakistan – Shahid Afridi (captain), Misbah-ul-Haq, Mohammad Hafeez, Kamran Akmal, Younus Khan, Umar Akmal, Abdul Razzaq, Saeed Ajmal, Umar Gul, Wahab Riaz, Ahmed Shehzad.
Canada – Ashish Bagai (captain), Rizwan Cheema, Harvir Baidwan, Nitish Kumar, Tyson Gordon, Henry Osinde, Ruvindu Gunasekera, Khurram Chohan, Jimmy Hansra, Zubin Surkari, Balaji Rao.
Pakistan are the ICC Cricket World Cup 1992 champions, and they are also the ICC World Twenty20 2009 champions. Pakistan have been semi finalist 3 times in the ICC Champions Trophy in 2000, 2004 and 2009. By comparison, Canada is hardly world cup material, but after yesterday’s surprise, when Ireland beat England, nothing seems impossible
