Argentina's hopes of securing a place at the ICC World Cup Qualifier when they host the ICC World Cricket League Division 3 tournament next moth were given a tremendous boost when they beat a developmental Bermuda side by 43 runs at the St. Alban's Club. Bermuda were bowled out for 146 in reply to Argentina's 189 for 5.
Argentina's innings was built around a second-wicket stand between Lucas Paterlin (75) and Alec Ferguson (57), but only Delyone Borden (38) managed any score of substance for Bermuda.
It was the third game of the tour for Bermuda, and they had got off to a good start in last weekend's double header.
In the first match they made 258 for 6, Chris Douglas top scoring with 79, and bowled Argentina out for 122, with Tamauri Tucker taking 4 for 24.
On Sunday, Argentina's batting again proved fragile as they managed 144, but Bermuda too had problems and it took Glenn Blakeney (37*) to steer them to a two-wicket win.
