Wins for France, Israel, Belgium and Norway in play-offs
On the last day of the tournament, play-offs for third, fifth, seventh and ninth place were also held across the Isle of Man, with France, Israel, Belgium and Norway being the victors.
At Cronkbourne, Italy won the toss and elected to bat against France. An innings of 47 from Abdur Bhuiyan led them to a total of 167 before they were bowled out after 49 overs.
In reply, France initially collapsed to 29-5. But a fine sixth wicket partnership between Zika Ali and William Smati got them back into the game. When Ali was out for 40, Smati and his captain Liddiard then brought the scores level before Liddiard was bowled with one over to go.
Cool as you like, Smati stroked the first ball of the last over for four to secure a three wicket win and third place for France, taking his personal score to an unbeaten and match winning 59.
In the fifth place play off between Israel and Spain, Spain won the toss and elected to bowl first in what were initially damp and foggy conditions. With Michael Cohen out from the first ball of the innings, it seemed to be the correct decision.
As the sun began to shine, the runs began to flow. Tournament MVP Josh Evans scored 57, whilst Nir Dokarker scored a fine 68 from 74 balls to take Israel's total to 232-7 from their 50 overs.
In reply, Spain soon collapsed to 19-7, with Shalom Kristi taking four wickets and Shifron Waskar taking three. A late order recovery was not enough, and Spain were bowled out for 52, losing by 180 runs.
In the seventh place play off at Vagabonds, Belgium won the toss and elected to bat first. A fine innings of 83 from Shaival Mehta took them to a competitive total of 197-8 in their 43 overs, Fraser McRae also chipping in with 34 from 45 balls.
In reply, only Scott Chipolina reached double figures for Gibraltar as they were dismissed for 65, losing by 132 runs. Shalin Shah was the pick of the Belgian bowlers with 4-26.
The ninth place play-off at St Johns was between Germany and Norway, with neither team wanting to finish in last place.
Norway won the toss and elected to bat. After losing Tassam Ajaib from the first ball of the match, Norway recovered to score 182 in 41.5 overs, helped along by 34 extras. Oliver Filby was the pick of the German bowlers with 4-21.
In reply, Germany had no answer to a devastating spell of bowling from Syed Mosawar Ahmad, who took 7-27 to bowl the Germans out for just 57, losing by 125 runs. The Germans go home in last place and without a win.
