Island shock Gibraltar

The Island pulled off two shock victories when they twice beat the Gibraltar national side in Twenty20 matches.

In the first game, the ICC World League team were dismissed for 180 and the Island got the runs for the loss of only one wicket.

Castletown’s Gareth Morris scored a stunning century from only 40 balls.

For the second fixture, the Manx made 153 and then dismissed their opponents for 117.

In Saturday’s 50 over per side match, the Isle of Man had scored 237 for four, but Gibraltar got home by five wickets with just an over left. Ricky Kniveton hit 57, while Gareth Morris and Max Stokoe both made 44.

This was a great performance by the Island against a country which is around 20 places above them in the ICC World rankings.
