Israel crashed to their fifth consecutive defeat as they lost to Belgium by 5 wickets at Les Quennevais.

Israel lost the toss and were put into bat, a good decision by the Belgians as they dismissed the two Israeli openers, Hyman and Nagavkar, for 0. Eshkol Solomon (25) and Daniel Hotz (40) then put on 36 for the 4th wicket to steady the innings but wickets fell at regular intervals and Israel finished 106 all out in 19.3 overs.

The Belgian bowlers shared around the wickets with Waqas Shafiq being the most economical, taking 7-2 in 4 overs.

In response Belgium got off to a solid start, openers Nirvam Shah (11) and Ali Raza (14) sharing in a stand of 30. They then suffered a mini-collapse as they fell to 57-5, young leg-spinner Josh Evans picking up 3 of the top-order wickets to fall.

But a run-a-ball 28 from Simon Newport and Nadeem Khan's 24 off 19 balls dashed any hopes Israel had of victory, the Belgian pair getting their side home with 2 overs to spare.

Belgium's win sees them finish 3rd in Group B, setting up a fixture against Norway in the third-place play-off semi-final tomorrow.

Israel meanwhile will play Gibraltar in the eleventh place play-off semi-final at Les Quennevais.
