Israel bow out in style

Israel finished the Pepsi ICC Europe Division 3 T20 Championships in style after handing Spain a seven-wicket defeat in La Manga.

Spain’s top order only contributed 13 runs before Crompton (19) and Ahmed (31) secured some stability in the innings.

Iqbal run out for 15 was the only other Spain batsman to get into double figures, which left them 111 all out and batting only 19.1 overs. The stand-out bowler for Israel was Perere getting 4-21.

Israel managed the winning runs in 17.5 overs, thanks to Kahamker who just fell short of his half-century with a well made 49 and all-rounder Josh Evans who finished 43 not out. Panchal was the best bowler for Spain with 2-23.
