Live updates from the match between Bermuda and USA at the National Sports Centre.

5:36pm: Well, it was too much of a mountain to overcome. Nepal finishes second with a net run rate of 0.715; USA second with a net RR of 0.456; and Bermuda -0.683. Those early matches of just barely scoring 100 doomed Bermuda to stay in Division 3 for the next World Cup cycle. Nepal and Uganda advance to Division 2 while Italy and Oman drop to Division 4. The US and Bermuda will play again tomorrow in the third/fourth playoff. Thanks for following today.

5:32pm: Batting stats while we wait: Gibbons 4, Douglas 89, Manders 13, Outerbridge 37, Hemp 11, Tucker 37*, Cann 6*, 24 extras

5:27pm BERMUDA WINS! B
An anticlimatic wide ball to Tucker settles it. Now it's up to the mathematicians to figure out the net run rate. My basic maths indicates that Nepal finished second and will advance, but hold on.

5:24pm: Bermuda 209/5 - correction Cann is in. 

5:23pm:
OUT! Outerbridge is bowled 208/5. Jones in.
