Brazil

Brazil cause upset

ESPNcricinfo staff

Brazil caused the big surprise on the fourth day of the ICC Americas Division 3 tournament with a 37-run win over previously unbeaten Chile. Brazil came into the match on the back of two defeats in two while Chile, with three wins in three, just needed victory to take the title. Matt Featherstone, who runs the country's cricket development programmer, was Brazil's hero with 152 off 109 balls as they piled up a daunting 359 or 6, adding 145 for the third wicket with Viren Narula (81). Paul Wollocombe (66) and Simon Shalders (80) led a spirited chase but it was too much for Chile. Belize kept their hopes alive with a 34-run win over Peru

Chile's defeat means that Turks & Caicos Islands or Belize will now pip them to the title if they win their meeting on the final day, as they both have better net run rate.
