Suriname stun dire Bahamas
Suriname provided a major upset on the final day of the ICC Americas Division 2 Championship, not only beating odds-on favourites Bahamas but also leapfrogging them to the title and promotion to Division One.
On the eve of the match, we wrote that “Suriname will need an extraordinarily comprehensive win to have any chance of overtaking the Bahamas”, and that’s just what happened. Needing only 83 to avoid being pipped to the title on net run rate, Bahamas were utterly woeful as they crashed to 57 all out and a thumping 146-run defeat.
