With one round of matches still to come, Denmark and Norway have now secured their place in the European regional qualifier after the second session today in the Netherlands, joining Italy who secured their place this morning.
Denmark came up against Portugal in Deventer, the latter batting first after winning the toss. They offered little with the bat and were bowled out for 81, Saad Ahmad taking 4-17. A 51 run third wicket partnership between Taranjit Bharaj and Anders Bulow - the latter top scoring with 35 - helped secure the seven wicket win, and a place in the final, for the Danes.
The other match in Group A saw Cyprus bat first against France and get bowled out for 115, Paul Alam taking 3-15. A knock of 44 by Norman Naeem led the way for France in reply, who survived a collapse from 90-2 to 99-6 to win by four wickets with 8 balls to spare.
In Group C, Norway secured their place with a win in a low scoring encounter against Guernsey. The Channel Islanders batted first, but some tight Norwegian bowling restricted them to just 90-7 from their 20 overs. Norway lost five wickets in reply, but held on to secure a five wicket win with 3.3 overs to spare.
The other Group C game of the afternoon saw the Czech Republic secure their first win in an ICC sanctioned international since 2011. They put Israel into bat and restricted them to 112-6 from their 20 overs. Eshkol Solomon top scored with 50, whilst Michael Cohen scored 40. Sameera Waththage was the leading Czech bowler with 4-17. The Czech team took their entire quota of 20 overs to chase down their target, winning by 4 wickets.
In Group B, Belgium batted first against Jersey in Schiedam in their second game of the day. Ben Stevens took 4-10 as Belgium were bowled out for 89. Jersey then had little trouble chasing down their target, winning by 8 wickets in 10.2 overs.
The other group B match saw Finland bat first against Spain, scoring 119-6 from their 20 overs thanks to a run a ball 50 by captain Nathan Collins. Finland then restricted Spain to 91-9 in reply, winning by 28 runs.
The tournament will reach a conclusion tomorrow with the final round of matches in each group. As the table currently stands, Jersey, Guernsey and Germany are set to join Italy, Denmark and Norway in the regional final.
