Khawar Ali produced a brilliant all-round performance, top-scoring with 74 in Omans total of 189 before taking 5 for 37 to help his side beat Denmark by 43 runs in a de facto semi-final at Severn Cricket Field. The win helped Oman finish at the top of the WCL Division Four round-robin points table and secure promotion to WCL Division Three while the loss kept Denmark out of the top two, finishing third behind USA due to the net run rate tiebreaker despite being level on points.Denmark were on top early after sending Oman in to bat, reducing them to 62 for 5 as medium pacer Basit Raja ripped through Khawars batting partners at the top of the order, taking three wickets in his opening spell. Khawar stuck out the early danger period though and found a willing ally in captain Ajay Lalcheta. The pair put on 97 for the sixth wicket to keep Oman afloat. Lalcheta eventually finished with 62 as the pair accounted for 72 percent of Omans runs.Just as he did against USA, Aftab Ahmed had a major impact with a late spell, taking three of his four wickets from the 37th over on beginning with Khawar. Aftab claimed the key scalp of Amir Ali next to work into Omans tail and finished off his spell claiming Lalcheta as the ninth wicket before Raja came back to wrap up the innings in 46.4 overs by removing Munis Ansari.Aftab got Denmarks chase off to a dashing start, striking three fours and two sixes in his 27 off 14 balls picking out opening swing bowler Rajeshkumar Ranpura for special punishment. When he fell to Lalchetas spin in the fourth over Denmark had reached 37 in just 21 balls.Saif Ahmad continued the assault on Ranpura, who conceded 51 in four overs opening the bowling, as he made 31 off 21 balls including six fours and by the second ball of the ninth over Denmark reached 68 for 1. Amir, who had replaced Ranpura to start the ninth, swung momentum Omans way with a double-strike, bowling Saif and then claiming Freddie Klokker edged behind first ball.With the exception of the final over, Lalcheta then used spin exclusively throughout the rest of the match to near perfection. Denmark reached 91 for 3 in 18 overs when drinks were taken and on resumption, Khawar was brought on to bowl his part-time legspin. The move proved to be a masterstroke as Khawar struck with his first two balls, trapping Zameer Khan for 8 before Yasir Iqbal was caught behind.The wickets brought Amjad Khan to the crease and Denmarks stand-in captain played a valiant knock, eventually finishing unbeaten on 32. But he could not find a partner to see him through as Khawar continued to whittle away at the other end. Hamid Shah fell in the 23rd for 19 before Anders Bulow was bowled for 10.Zeeshan Maqsood bowled a miserly spell of left-arm spin opposite Khawar, conceding just 14 runs in his first nine overs while bowling four maidens. He was finally rewarded off the first ball of his final over in the 32nd, winning a leg before appeal to dismiss Raja for 7 to make it 137 for 8. Khawar then struck off the last ball of the 33rd to complete his five-for, having Omar Hayat caught by Maqsood. Strike bowler Munis Ansari, who usually opens with the new ball, was then brought on for his first over of the day in the 34th and bowled Bashir Shah to end the match as Denmark ended all out for 146 in 34 overs. Jersey defeated USA by one run at Wong Cricket Field, though the Americans gained promotion ahead of Denmark thanks to a superior net run rate while Jersey was relegated to Division Five in spite of the win. Jersey elected to bat first and raced away behind Nat Watkins, who recorded a half-century in 33 balls, to reach 94 for 0 in 17 overs.Ambidextrous spinner Prashanth Nair, brought into the USA lineup for his first match of the tournament, struck with his very first ball in the 18th as Jersey captain Peter Gough pulled a half-tracker straight to Steven Taylor at short midwicket. It was the first of three wickets in consecutive overs for Nair as he followed Goughs dismissal with a sharp return catch to remove Luke Gallichan in the 20th before he teased Watkins into a false drive to cover, falling for 69 to make it 109 for 3.Jersey slipped further to 124 for 4 before Jonty Jenner and Anthony Hawkins-Kay rebuilt their innings with an 82-run stand as Jersey appeared on their way to a 300-plus score at 205 for 4 in 38 overs with Jenner well set on 57. However, Jenner fell in controversial circumstances off the first legal ball of the 38th when he pulled a full toss off Timroy Allen to mid-on for a simple catch by Abdullah Syed. The ball appeared to be over waist height, but square leg umpire Kathy Cross deemed it a legal delivery giving USA a much-needed break. Jersey struggled to recover thereafter, only hitting one boundary across the next ten overs before being bowled out in the 49th over for 249.USA had chased a target of 250 or higher only three times in history, but of higher priority was staying above Denmark on net run rate. USA made a cautious start to their chase and eventually slipped to 60 for 3 after Watkins spun out the top order to claim 3 for 35. Akeem Dodson and Alex Amsterdam continued the go slow approach as word filtered to the USA camp of Denmarks loss, altering USAs required target for promotion to 131. It was finally achieved in the 36th over and USA made it to the last drinks break at 136 for 3 in 37.With promotion secured, USA accelerated to go for the outright win. Dodson was caught on the boundary for 16 but Amsterdam carried on to bring up his maiden century off 95 balls and put on a rapid 52-run stand with Allen. Amsterdam fell on the final ball of the 46th, leaving USA to get 50 off the last four overs. They took 17 in the 47th and another 19 off the 49th as Elmore Hutchinson hit two straight sixes off Rhys Palmer through the wind to take the equation from 18 off eight to six off the final six balls.Charles Perchard bowled a brilliant final over, though USA opted for wild slogs instead of calmly pinching singles with five men still on the boundary, and four runs were left to get off the last ball. Hutchinson scuffed a drive into the ground to long-off for two, securing the win for Jersey. Perchard ended with 3 for 56, with all three wickets coming in the 48th and 50th overs.Italy scored a consolation win over Bermuda by 25 runs at Wright Cricket Field, though the margin of defeat was small enough to allow Bermuda to stay in Division Four above Jersey on the net run rate tiebreaker. Italy made 228 for 8 after being sent in with all of their top eight crossing double-figures but none reaching 50 as opener Manpreet Singh top-scored with 45. Italy were 153 for 6 in 41 overs before Joy Perera and Fida Hussain added 60 for the seventh wicket in the next seven overs to get Italy to a defendable total.Bermuda needed to chase the target in 14.4 overs to pass USA on net run rate. Openers Dean Minors and Kamau Leverock attacked briefly at the start of the chase but both fell to Carl Sandris offspin to make it 35 for 2 in seven overs and from there Bermuda batted to ensure they stayed above Jersey on net run rate, regardless of the match result.The net runs margin between a Jersey win and a Bermuda loss could be no more than 149 runs. Once Bermuda passed 79, they were safe from relegation assuming a Jersey one-run win. Bermuda eventually finished on 203 for 9 as Tre Manders top-scored with 37 while medium pacer Charanjeet Singh took 4 for 24. Wendell Smallwood Jersey .

In a year that has already proven to be massive for the UFC, with one major card after another, UFC 205 on Nov. 12 at Madison Square Garden in New York looks to be the biggest and most important of them all. In honor of such a marquee event, ESPN.com is providing dedicated previews to all 13 bouts on the card, breaking down whats at stake and projecting who will win, along with quotes and statistics for each fighter.Welterweight championship: Tyron Woodley (16-3) vs. Stephen Thompson (13-1)Odds as of Nov. 5: Woodley +170, Thompson -200Dana Whites thoughtsIts an interesting fight because Woodley did just knock out Robbie Lawler in the first round, which is super impressive. Wonderboy Thompson has been on a tear, [having] just beat Rory MacDonald, and before that he beat Johny Hendricks in nasty fashion. So he beat two really good guys, and if you look at the size difference, Wonderboy is so much bigger than Woodley in height and reach. Its a fun fight. This is in New York because its a great fight. I wanted to build the best card weve ever done for Madison Square Garden in New York. Neither of these guys are from there, but this is just a great fight.Whats at stake?Woodley says he got the money fight after allOne would think a first-round, highlight-reel knockout in a welterweight championship fight wouldnt get you booed ahead of your next fight.Such is the case for Woodley, however, who acknowledges that hes headed into UFC 205 with a healthy amount of trolls in his wake. Thats despite a spectacular performance against Lawler in June.Woodley, who trains out of St. Louis and Milwaukee, believes its mostly due to misunderstanding. He said fans are under the impression that he purposefully sat out and waited for his title shot against Lawler -- he went 17 months between fights -- but those fans forget he was supposed to fight Hendricks in October. The fight never happened because Hendricks experienced a poor weight cut.After that, Woodley said the UFC made it pretty clear he was next in line. It just took a while for the promotion to tell him when he was fighting for the title.A lot of people, Stephen included, called it me waiting it out, Woodley said. I had a full training camp to fight Hendricks. In January, I was told I was going to be fighting Robbie. So I thought I was just waiting on a date. [Declining matchups] never happened.The negative fan reaction also likely stems from Woodleys comments immediately after winning the title, when he said he wished to have a money fight against Georges St-Pierre or Nick Diaz -- not necessarily Thompson. But again, Woodley said he accepted the Thompson fight the second it was offered to him, and as far as calling out St-Pierre, the former champ, who has said he intends to come out of retirement, Woodley wont apologize for that.Fighting is the only sport where fans dont understand this is our living, Woodley said. If I have a chance to make a larger amount of money in a legacy fight against the No. 1 welterweight in history, it makes sense for me to want that fight. You have a lot of pay-per-view money coming to this company. Why shouldnt the champion partake in a piece of that pie?This fight is still a money fight, though. Its breaking records. Fans dont realize that I got what I wanted. Im going to torch Stephen Thompson, and I made sure I get to do it in New York.Thompson: The (Canadian) elephant in the roomNine years ago, Thompson tore every ligament in his left knee.dddddddddddd Doctors said his kickboxing career was likely over. In the end, they were right -- but not for the reasons they thought.Thompson, 33, worked tirelessly to come back from the injury, but it took time. During that process, he started working with St-Pierre at Tristar MMA in Montreal. By the time the injury was completely healed, MMA had overtaken kickboxing as his primary focus.When I got injured, I wasnt really sure where my kickboxing career was taking me, Thompson said. I had been fighting every weekend since I was 15. I was getting a little burned out, but then when they told me I might never fight again, it was crushing.I believe everything happens for a reason, and I wouldnt be where I am today without that injury. During that time, I transitioned to MMA, but I also got back a fire to compete. So when I did jump into MMA, I wasnt burned out at all anymore.St-Pierre was around for a crucial period of Thompsons transition, which has an impact on his current situation. Thompson is favored to win the welterweight title over Woodley, and if he does, one of the biggest fights for him would be a defense against St-Pierre.Thompson has already gone on record saying he believes St-Pierre would deserve a title shot, even though he hasnt fought since 2013. Due to the personal relationship with St-Pierre, its not a fight he wants -- but he isnt ruling it out, either.Hes a good buddy of mine, Thompson said. He was a big part of my inspiration. I was fairly disappointed when I had to fight another Tristar guy in Rory MacDonald, and I definitely have a closer relationship with Georges than Rory.I wouldnt want that fight to be honest, but he is one of the best. If he does come back and wants to fight for the title and Im there? May the best man win -- but I wouldnt want to be the one to call for that fight.Key statsWoodley: 16-3 record (6-2 UFC); five of 10 previous champions have defended welterweight title at least onceWoodley: 68 percent significant strike defense, best among active UFC welterweightsThompson: 13-1 record (8-1 UFC); seven-fight win streakThompson: 4.7 strikes landed per minute, sixth-highest among active UFC welterweightsBreakdownThere was a time not that long ago that Woodleys collegiate wrestling background wouldve been the X factor in this matchup. Today, however, that is no longer the case.Its not that Woodleys wrestling cant (or wont) have an impact on this title fight, but it might better serve as a plan B. Thompson has not surrendered a takedown since 2012, which was also the last (and only) time he suffered a loss.Thompsons size and style creates so much real estate between himself and an opponent. Its reasonable to think an experienced wrestler, who is used to that explosive first step -- that shot, if you will -- would have as good a chance as anyone to close through it. Woodley is as fast as they come, and that closing speed applies to his right hand as much as, if not more than, his do
