Now that Division Five of the World Cricket League is over, let us take a look back at our list of twelve players to watch in the tournament and see how they did.
Afghanistan: Mohammad Nabi
Mohammad Nabi had a decent tournament, and was one of Afghanistan's key players in their tournament win. He was one of only two Afghanistan players to score 100 runs in total in the tournament, and was one of only three players to make a score over 30 in a shaky batting line-up. He also bowled well, taking ten wickets, behind his Pakistan Customs team mate Hamid Hassan, at an average of 6.70, the best for Afghanistan.
Bahamas: Narendra Ekanayake
We picked Ekanayake as one to watch with his bowling, and he was the joint top wicket taker for the Bahamas with Garfield Armstrong, taking eight wickets at 16.75. He had the best innings bowling figures for the Bahamas in the tournament, taking 4/15 against Vanuatu. He also chipped in with a few runs amongst a low scoring Bahamas batting line-up, scoring 77 runs, including three of their top ten individual scores.
Botswana: James Moses
Like many of the teams in this tournament, Botswana struggled to find runs. James Moses (right) scored 114 of them, with an average of 19 and a top score of 40 against the Bahamas. He probably bowled better, taking seven wickets at 18.14, with a best of 3/22 against Singapore in the 5th place semi-final.
Germany: Javed Iqbal
Germany bowled well in this tournament, with three German bowlers in the top ten wicket takers. The only other country with more than one in that list is Nepal. Javed Iqbal was third amongst those German bowlers, taking twelve wickets at 16.75 with a best of 3/40 against Mozambique.
Japan: Naoki Miyaji
Miyaji is probably the most disappointing of our twelve players to watch. He took only two wickets in the tournament, and conceded 190 runs. Instead the Japanese bowling was led by Gavin Beath and Yuta Matsubara with nine wickets each.
Jersey: Ryan Driver
We marked Driver out as primarily one to watch with the bat, and he made the tournament's second highest individual score, 92 not out against the Bahamas. Norway's Shahid Ahmed made the only century of the event. But it was as a a bowler that Driver really shone, taking twelve wickets at 8.25. Opening the bowling and often bowling his ten overs consecutively, he usually removed the top order batsmen, and played a key role in getting Jersey to the final.
Mozambique: Kaleem Shah
We picked Kaleem Shah out as an all-rounder, but in the end he rarely bowled, bowling just 15 overs in the tournament, taking two wickets in the process. He was Mozambique's leading run scorer though, scoring 170 runs, more than double the second highest run scorer, at an average of 24.29. His highest score was 54 against the USA.
Nepal: Binod Das
Binod Das was not at his best in this tournament, though he still took nine wickets at an average of exactly ten. His best bowling was 5/16 in the rained off match against Mozambique. He didn't take any wickets in the replay, when Mahaboob Alam made history by taking all ten wickets.
Norway: Zeeshan Ali
Norway were very disappointing in this tournament, though some of their players did play well. Zeeshan Ali was one of these, scoring 131 runs with a top score of 77 not out against Vanuatu. He also took seven wickets at 18.29.
Singapore: Chetan Suryawanshi
In our original article, we pointed out that Suryawanshi had come back into form with the bat after giving up the gloves. Singapore promptly gave him back the gloves for one match, but fortunately his form remained. He was one of five Singapore batsmen to make more than 100 runs in the tournament, scoring 134 runs at an average of 26.80. With the gloves he took three catches and a stumping against Jersey. He also showed off his all-round ability, bowling an over against Mozambique and removing their last man.
USA: Lennox Cush
Lennox Cush was the most experienced first-class player coming into this tournament, and we were expecting big things from him. However, his batting wasn't needed much, as the Americans tended to chase their targets down very quickly. He only batted in four of the eight matches he played in. He was the USA's second highest wicket-taker with eight wickets at 18.75, second to Khwaja Shuja, who was second in the overall wicket-taker's tally.
Vanuatu: Andrew Mansale
The youngest of our twelve, Mansale was part of a Vanuatu team that seemed more than a little out of their depth and finished last. Mansale was their top player though, the only one to score more than 100 runs, scoring 127 at 21.17 and making their two highest individual scores. He was also the joint highest wicket-taker with six wickets at 19.67.
