Kuwait dominated once again on day three of Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Division 8 after ripping through Bhutan's batting line-up and skittling the Asian side for just 31 runs.

The four losing sides Suriname, Bahamas, Gibraltar and Bhutan are all relegated out of Pepsi ICC WCL Div. 8. Gibraltar will take on Bhutan while Bahamas will face Suriname on Thursday in a series of cross-over matches.

Kuwait rounded off the group stages of the competition with another victory this time defeating Bhutan by eight wickets after Tshering Dorji's side failed abysmally with the bat at Sulabiya ground.

Not one player managed to make double figures as Saad Khalid ripped through the batting line-up, ending the match on 6-15. His bowling partner Mohammed Murad didn't go away empty handed either, claiming the remaining four scalps of the Bhutan side.

The destruction of Bhutan's batting line up for a mere 31 runs, saw Kuwait take to the field in the morning sunshine and knock-off the runs in just 5.1 overs but not before Bhutan had managed to snaffle two wickets.

Lobzang Yonten and Tandin Wangchuk both managed to re-arrange the stumps of the opening batsmen Hisham Mirza and Irfan Bhatti and thus making the final few runs came to Abid Chaudhry and Mohammed Akhudzada - who did so with ease.

Man of the match for the second time this tournament Khalid said, "Today was another easy match for us just like the first day of the tournament against Suriname. My bowling just went right for me today, I'm not a selfish player I'm in it for the team and the fact I took so many wickets today is pleasing.

"We've only really been challenged by Vanuatu so I'm looking forward to our play-off game where hopefully we can be challenged a bit more."
