Italy defeated Denmark by 18 runs and were crowned ICC European Division 1 Champions under lights on Finals Day in Hove although both sides had confirmed their place at the World Twenty20 Qualifiers in the UAE during November
Italy, who won the toss and chose to bat under the lights, got off to an ideal start with an opening partnership of 82 by Andy Northcote and Dinidu Marage who scored 41 runs including five fours before being dismissed off the bowling of Syed Bashir.
Andy Northcote who batted fantastically throughout brought his 50 up in 31 balls, shortly after Peter Petricola was dismissed by a brilliant catch on the boundary by Aftab Ahmed for 31. Carl Sandri came and went in his opening ball being stumped by Freddie Klokker.

The ICC European Division One Championship gets underway on July 8 in Sussex with the prize for the finalists being a trip to the UAE for the World Twenty20 Qualifier in November, from which six teams will qualify for the 2014 World Twenty20 in Bangladesh.
The other four ICC regions have already held their qualifying competitions, and the two European finalists will join Americas' qualifiers Bermuda and USA, East Asia Pacific qualifier Papua New Guinea, Asian qualifiers Nepal and Hong Kong, African qualifiers Kenya and Uganda and hosts UAE. The top six from the last global qualifier in 2012 will make up the remaining 16 teams; Afghanistan, Canada, Ireland, Namibia, Netherlands and Scotland.
Runners-up from 2011 Italy are in Group A for this tournament, and they field a team with just three changes from their 2011 line-up. They come into the tournament after a disappointing World Cricket League Division Three campaign in which they finished last. Peter Petricola was the second highest run scorer in that tournament and will again be key for them in this event, with the ball as well as the bat.

I hope we all can," he said. "It will be a tremendous honour for all of us to represent Italy and I will be incredibly proud if we can take it a step further to the 2014 qualifiers.
