News: Japan barely scrap past Cook Islands

Cook Islands: 75 (50 overs) – target revised to 73 off 42 overs due to rain
Japan: 73-8 (37 overs)

Japan win by 2 wickets. The scorecard is here

This is a pathetic display of cricket by both Japan and Cook Islands. Cooks I can understand, because they have only 20K people in that country. But whats up with Japan, chasing 73 after losing 8 wickets!!

At least Japan is still in with a chance to qualify. They will now have to beat Fiji in their next game, and then hope that either Cooks beat Fiji, or that game gets rained off. Both situations are unlikely, and in any case, Japan does not look deserving to go through to the WCQS Div III over Fiji anyway.
