Bhutan 7th position in Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Division 8

In the seventh/eighth play-off, Bhutan recorded a last-ball two wickets victory over The Bahamas. After a disappointing tournament with both bat and ball, Jigme Singye and Manoj Adhikari came to the party for the Asian side and helped them secure a positive end to a disappointing tournament.

Singye claimed 5-23 in 6.3 overs while team-mate Tandin Wangchuk ripped through the Bahamian top order, dismissing Greg Taylor and Narenda Ebanayake early on and then later removing opening batsman Mark Taylor too leaving Singye to clear up the lower order.

When the time came to knock off the runs, Adhikari's 58 was the cornerstone of Bhutan's innings, but it came down to Phuntsho Wangdi to score the winning runs off the final ball diving over the line and securing Bhutan its first and only victory of the tournament.
