Flying start for cricketers

The Isle of Man's cricketers won their first game in the ICC European Division Two Championships in Belgium today (Monday).

Playing Luxembourg in Ghent, the Island got off to a great start thanks to a 95 from Castletown's Gareth Morris.

Jaco Jansen hit 46 not out and Max Stokoe made 42 as the Manx ended their 20 overs on a splendid 200 for three.

Luxembourg then struggled against a fiery attack and ended on 58 for nine.

Akkie van der Berg took four wickets for just seven runs and Dan Hawke returned three for 18.

That added up to a fine start for the Island, but tomorrow (Tuesday) promises to be tougher, with games against Cyprus and Finland.
