In the other games of the day, excellent bowling performances from Imran Zaigham (6-17) and Azam Khalil (4-3) helped Sweden secure a comprehensive eight-wicket victory over Turkey. Chasing 42 for victory, Sweden needed only ten overs to knock off the required runs.
At Marina, the Czech Republic cruised to its third victory in four matches as it defeated Estonia by 81 runs.
Saturday will see hosts Greece take on the Czech Republic at Marina while Sweden plays Estonia and Bulgaria clashes with Turkey at Ropa Valley.
