Isle of Man lose to Finland as Sweden lose to Cyprus

Isle of Man vs Cyprus by Gary Weightman

The Isle of Man cricket team have lost to Finland in their final group B game at the ICC European Division Two Championships in Corfu.

The Manx team opened the batting but were all out for just 82 runs before Finland reached their target with three overs remaining.

Despite the defeat the Isle of Man still top the group after Sweden suffered a shock defeat by Cyprus.

If Sweden and Finland win their remaining matches they will progress.

Gareth Dawson's side finish the group with three wins over Cyprus, Greece and Croatia.

The Manx side are looking to improve on last year's third-place finish in Belgium and make the final of the competition.

Both finalists will gain promotion to next season's Division One tournament.
