France in a hurry to keep final hopes alive
Hellas (Greece) were shot out for 49 as France stayed in the hunt for a place in the final with a seven wickets win at Crosby.
Only two Hellas batsman reached double figures after they were put into bat and apart from Spiridon Gasteratos with 21 not out and Georgio Kantas with 19, the top score was two. There were five ducks.
Zain Zahir led the carnage with two wickets in his first over and just two balls into the fourth over, Hellas were six for five. Zahir finished with five for 11 from his seven overs and two wickets apiece from Thomas Liddiard and Cameron Beauclerk ended the innings in the 18th over.
Henry Collins was determined the see France to victory, he was nine not out when the game was won in the 12th over but Zika Ali was in a hurry. He hit 20 off 18 balls with four fours to complete the quickest win of the tournament.
