The final play-off match one saw Wild Men From Borneo (WMFB) against the Southern Stars. The Wild Men went out and scored 33 runs with Scarface retiring hurt on 11. The Southern Stars won.

Match two
The first semi-final in the Plate division saw the Southern Stars taking on the Phuket Juniors. The Southern Stars made a very good score of 69, which proved too much for the young Phuket players who made 39 in reply. Ron Elliott again batted well, before retiring on 30, and Scott McNamara made a handy 27 not out. The Phuket Juniors’ Jasper made 14 not out.

Match three
In the second semi-final in the Plate division the CBBs defeated Bat-69/St Xaviers from Kolkata in an exciting match. The Bat-69 made three for 52 with Karan Suri making 23 runs. The CBBs chased the score down in the fourth over making 56 for the loss of no wickets. Imran from Imran Sports retired on 32, with Eggy not out on 14.

Match four
The first Bowl division semi-final saw the Storm Chasers from England take on Mount Compass from South Australia. Mount Compass batted first and posted an imposing 77 runs. Nash batted really well to retire on 32 and Martin scored 20. Diwan bowled a brilliant over with only six runs coming off it for the Storm Chasers. The Chasers batted well however fell short of the target to make 60 runs with Diwan following up with a handy 23. Mount Compass’ Payton Roocke bowled a very tight over for six runs only.

Match five
The Sharifally Huzifers played the Desa Bangles in an all Malaysian affair with the Bangles running out winners 54 to 55. The Huzifers ran out of steam a little after some great performances in early rounds and simply did not make enough runs. David batted very well for Desa and retired on 31, with Pal making 16.

Match six
Matches started to become interesting in the Cup semi-finals. In the first semi-final MG7 made an imposing 90 runs with Faisal making 22 and Bharat making 27 not out. Etihad chased well with a very good innings by Sreekanth retiring on 32 and Chirag scoring 16. However they fell short of the target making 72.

Match seven
The second semi-final saw the second team from Kuwait, the MG7 Warriors, taking on the Wolfpack from Australia. In an extremely exciting match, the Wolfpack made two for 68. This impressive target proved not too challenging for the MG7 Warriors: the score was passed in the fourth over; with Casino making 31 before retiring and Roy making 26 not out.

Match eight
The Shield Final was an all WMFB match, with their number-one team taking on their number-two team. WMFB 1 batted first, posting a good score of 69, with Ginger retiring on 30 runs. WMFB 2 chased the score very sensibly making 72 in the final over to take home the Shield. Freebie and Noddy made valuable contributions with each making 26 runs.

Match nine

Batting first, the CBBs made an imposing score of 85, with Wayne Morrison retiring with 32 and Eggy making 22 not out. The Southern Stars batted well to make 76, but were unable to threaten the CBBs score. Scott McNamara retired on 32 and Jake Wright made 24 not out. Stretch from the CBBs closed the Matchbowling the final over and only going for 11 runs.
