The United States cricket team in Canada in 1845 was the second to visit another country following Canada's visit to the US in 1844.
Canada scored 80 in their first innings with a top score of 29 by Charles Birch while Henry Groom captured 5 wickets. USA replied with 79, George Sharpe taking 6 wickets, but Canada improved in the second innings and made 135, a good score in the contemporary conditions. Sharpe, making a fine all-round contribution, scored 31 and Lieutenant Hornby scored 35. Groom took another four wickets. Needing 137 to win, USA could only manage 75 after David Winckworth took eight wickets.
The two teams met later the same year in New York, with Canada winning again by 2 wickets.
