Norway set up a winner takes all clash with Italy tomorrow after they comprehensively outplayed Austria to record the easiest of 9 wicket wins at College Field.

Having won the toss and elected to bat, Austria weren't allowed to settle as Norway attacked from the start. Waheed Aamir removed Amar Naeem in the first over, and that set the tone for the whole innings.

Lakmal Kasthuriarchchige top scored with 13, and Amandeep (11) was the only other player to reach double figures, as extras (14) was the highest contributor to their meagre total of 64 all out in 16.3 overs.

Syed Waqas Ahmed (2-6), Shahbaz Butt (2-16) and Waheed Aamir (2-27) all bowled well, while Wasim Gill (1-12) and Babar Shahzad (1-0) were the other wicket takers.

A special note of praise for Norwegian wicket-keeper Moosa Rashid, who was involved in both a brilliant run out and stumping. In addition he took the final catch off the bowling of Shahzad.

Low totals have sometimes proved tricky this week, but not in this instance, as Norway raced to victory in just 9 overs.

Zeeshan Ali (21*), Adeel Ibrar (20*), and Zaheer Ashiq (20), all batted positively, striking 10 fours and 2 sixes between them.

Ashiq was the only wicket to fall, brilliantly run out by a direct hit from Soggi, but it proved the only consolation for Austria in a game completely dominated from start to end by Norway
