In what was effectively the second-place play-off, Mexico beat Belize by eight runs after posting 158 for 2.

Panama 191 for 3 (Chohan 56, Manjra 41*) beat El Salvador 42 for 8 (Ahir 3-6) by 149 runs Mexico 158 for 2 (Ahuja 70*) beat Belize 150 for 6 (MacFadzean 38*) by eight runs

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
