Kirton, who batted fourth, and number 6 Salman Nazar held the ship steady. Nazar had to retire injured after scoring 55 runs to bring Canada to 188 for four.

Ravinderpal Singh followed, hitting 42 runs off just 17 balls with two fours and four sixes. Kirton finished with seven fours and five sixes in his 95 ball knock.

Vanuatu opener Joshua Rasu had a rocky start to his innings, taking a ball from fast bowler Jeremy Gordon on the helmet. His 10 runs led all Vanuatu batsmen.

The six-team tournament, which runs through Sunday at the Maple Leaf Cricket Club, is part of the World Cup qualifying process. The Canadians came off victories over Denmark, Singapore, Malaysia and Qatar with captain Navneet Dhaliwal batting a few centuries.

The Challenge Leagues are a 2 1/2 year competition with 12 teams considered three steps away from the 2023 World Cup. The King City event was originally scheduled to be held in August but was postponed due to the pandemic.
