Match report from ICC
The Isle of Man have qualified for the final of the European Under-19 Division Two Championship after a big win over Spain at King William's College today.
After winning the toss, the hosts quickly elected to bat first in overcast and slightly damp conditions. They then tore through the Spanish top order, reducing them to 29-6. Matthew Ansell took four wickets, including three in four balls, just missing a hat-trick when a ball bounced just over the top of the stumps.
Spain staged a mini recovery, but were eventually bowled out for just 79, extras being the top scorer with 21.
This was never going to be enough and the Manxmen easily knocked off the required runs in 13.3 overs to win by six wickets, Jake Rowlands hitting 39 from 40 balls including three sixes to secure his teams place in tomorrow's final against Denmark.
