Cricket: Israel defeats Croatia, still relegated

by 86 runs in Jersey this morning, but the game had little relevance with
Saturday’s 43-run defeat to Gibraltar having already condemned Israel to
relegation from the top tier of European cricket.
Captain Herschel Gutman
(50) led the way for Israel with a good half century and contributions all the

returned excellent bowling figures of four for 11 as the Croatians were
dismissed for just 86, giving Israel the most comfortable of wins, and ensure
Israel at least didn’t finish last in the 12- nation event.

tournament, which will be held later this year in Dubai for the 2012 T20 World
