World Cup warm up results

 March 5

England beat Bermuda by 241 runs

Jamie Dalyrymple rescued England with a 79 ball 76 after some fine bowling from Leverock had seen them 6 down for 186 at one stage.

The Bermudan batsmen were sitting ducks, and only David Hemp, who plays for Glamorgan, reached double figures. Bermuda made 45, the same score that Canada made in the 1979 edition of the world cup, ironically also against England

South Africa beat Ireland by 45 runs

The Irish came very close to upsetting the Proteas, but a fine all round performance from Andrew Hall saved the South Africans the blushes. South Africa were 91/8 at one stage, and Ireland were once 139/4 chasing 192.

Sri Lanka beat Scotland by 159 runs

3 out of Sri Lanka’s top four scored above 70, thereby practically ending Scottish hopes. Gavin Hamilton top scored with 25 for the Scots, who finally ended up with 135.

West Indies beat Kenya by 21 runs

The lowest margin of victory in any of the warm up games- but the Windies were in command for most part of the game. Marlon Samuels scored exactly 100, and Chris Gayle made 75
