SPAIN BEAT SWEDEN IN TORNEO OPENER

Spain took the honours in their opening Group B match against promoted side Sweden in Ghent, who nevertheless made a promising debut at this level.

(Spanish Squad v Sweden June 2011 - Royal Brussels, Belgium)

An unbeaten 54 by captain Piyal Rahman enabled Sweden to reach 141 for five after Bilal Zaigham and Sunny Sharma had put on an opening stand of 40, but Farhat Mahmood removed both openers and then added the scalp of Aman Khalil to finish with three for 25.

Hassan Zaigham then struck a couple of early blows when Spain replied, but a superb 44-ball 70 from James Morgan swung the game Spain’s way. By the time he was fifth man out only five were needed for victory, and the Spanish, too, had 16 balls to spare as they reached their target without further loss.
