Greece

Greece romp to Euro Division 5 title

Martin Williamson

Greece had few difficulties in winning the European Division 5 Championship on home soil, beating all five opponents and emerging as odds-on favourites from the moment they squeezed past Sweden with a two-wicket victory in the opening round. Perhaps the most pleasing moment, certainly for the local spectators, came when they thrashed Turkey by 209 runs. Greece gained promotion to Division 4, while Sweden finished second with four wins. Turkey, with only one win, finished bottom.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Martin Williamson
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.
