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.
