Hosts Greece, Estonia and the Czech Republic record opening day victories
Hosts Greece opened the inaugural European Championship World Cricket League Division 5 tournament with a victory over Sweden by two wickets at the Ropa Valley ground in Corfu on Monday, but it was made to fight all the way by a spirited Swedish performance.

The encounter between Bulgaria and the Czech Republic was also a close-run affair, with the Czechs just holding on to secure a two-wicket win.

Meanwhile at the Marina Ground in Gouvria, Estonia registered a solid six-wicket victory over Turkey, largely thanks to a fine all-round performance from Murali Obili (3-10 and 32 in 38 balls) and a hard-hitting innings from skipper Tim Heath (68 not out).

Wednesday's matches will see Sweden take on Bulgaria at Marina while Turkey plays Czech Republic and Greece clashes with Estonia at Rupa Valley.
