After their comfortable victory against Brazil in their opening match last Friday, Peru found Chile on Saturday and Argentina on Sunday much tougher opposition.
Against Chile, Peru scored 110 for 9 in their 20 overs which Chile managed to overhaul for the loss of just five wickets and two overs to spare. Against Argentina, the most prolific run scorers in the competition, Peru managed to restrict Argentina to 166 for 9 with Dan Power contributing to six of those dismissals – one wicket, four catches and a run out ( shades of Dan's lightning-speed fielding at the Flacca). But Peru could only reach 118 for 5 in their 20 overs to lose by 48 runs.
But yesterday afternoon Peru made amends with a crushing victory over Mexico. Mexico batted first and were all out for 113 which Peru managed to overtake with the loss of just one wicket and Dan finishing on 31 not out.
Today will see Argentina and Chile fighting it out for top spot and if Peru beat Columbia then Peru will have secured third place. Go for it, Dan!
