Cayman Islands qualify for World Cricket League Division 5
ICC Americas Media Release
The Cayman Islands qualified for World Cricket League Division 5 at Belgrano Athletic Club yesterday, after a comfortable win over hosts Argentina.
Overnight rain showers left a wet outfield resulting in a delay to the start of play. An early afternoon start saw a shortened 33 over game for the second day in a row. Argentina won the toss and sent Cayman to bat.
All Cayman players got a start with Darren Cato top scoring with 33, While Ryan Bovell made quick fire 30 that saw Cayman close their innings for 173. The pick of the Argentine bowlers was Esteban MacDermott taking 3/24 from his 7 overs.
Argentina got off to a disastrous start, losing opener Matias Paterlini before registering a score, and never really threatened with Alejandro Ferguson top scoring with 28 in a team total of 106.
After a rest day on Friday, both teams meet up again on Saturday at the Hurlingham Club to complete ICC Americas World Cricket League Qualifier.
Summary of results
Cayman Islands 173 (33) Cato 33, Wright 4/33 (6) defeated Argentina 106 (28) Ferguson 28, MacDermott 3/43 (7) by 67 runs.
