Manx cricketers top the table in Belgium


The Isle of Man's cricketers have made it four out of four in the ICC European Division 2 Championships in Belgium.

Up against group favourites, Portugal, the Manx won the toss, opted to go into bat, and chalked up 142 for 8 in their 20 overs, Max Stokoe making 59.

Portugal ran them close in the batting but fell short of the target by nine runs.

This means the Isle of Man top their group and play the runners-up of group B in tomorrow's semi-finals.

If they win the semi they are automatically promoted to Division 1.
