ICC Americas Division 3, Buenos Aires, 2008

The Americas Division 3 tournament, played in Buenos Aires from 12th – 16th Feb, 2008, had a stunning climax when three teams could win the tournament before the final ball of the tournament.

Peru played well in their first ICC tournament and finished fourth. They enter the ranking table in 75th position. Brazil finished fifth, but had a big say in the final tournament result as they inflicted Chile’s only defeat. They dropped two places to 82nd with a loss of 8 points
