Germany take ICC Europe Division 2 glory

Germany won the ICC World Cricket League Europe Region Division 2, which concluded on Saturday (August 20). It finished with eight points in five matches to maintain a lead of two points over Sweden, the runner up. Both Germany and Sweden earned promotion for ICC Europe Division 1 in 2017 as a result of their performances.
 


Germany’s last game against Spain at the Skarpnack 1 in Stockholm was abandoned without a ball bowled, but having remained unbeaten throughout the tournament it had already taken an unassailable lead on the points table before coming into its final fixture.
 
Only two of the scheduled five matches could take place because of bad weather on the day. While both of Germany’s matches, against Israel and Spain, were abandoned without any action, Spain started with a thrilling seven-run win over Gibraltar.



Having shared points with Isle of Man in its first match of the day, Sweden needed to win against Gibraltar at Gardet and hope that Spain did not get more than a point against Germany.
 
As it turned out, Sweden rode on Bilal Zaigham’s 58 and Usman Arif’s all-round show of 61 and 4 for 12 to beat Gibraltar by 95 runs – the second largest margin of victory by runs in the tournament. It boosted Sweden’s net run-rate to +2.126.
 
Spain and Israel also finished with six points, but ended third and fourth respectively because of poorer net run-rates of +0.540 and +0.284.
 
Isle of Man was fifth with four points, and Gibraltar, which did not win a single game, finished at the bottom of the table.
