More inter-island cricket glory for Jersey
JERSEY’S status at the top of Channel Islands cricket was reaffirmed with the help of messieurs Duckworth and Lewis in Guernsey on Saturday, with the visitors claiming a third consecutive 50-over inter-insular crown.
Chuggy Perchard’s side required a revised total of 177 runs for victory at the KGV Playing Fields, after the Sarnians were bowled out for 194 on a day hampered by rain.
Jersey’s latest win – with five wickets in hand – makes it ten from ten in all competitions against their nearest rivals.
Captain Perchard said: ‘I actually think we got the better of the conditions to be honest. We lost the toss and Guernsey elected to have a bat on a deteriorating wicket, so it seemed like a good idea at the time, but rain in the interval I think made the ball come on a bit better in the second innings and that really helped our batters.
‘Pretty clinical by our guys overall, so happy to get the job done.
'It’s always a sweet feeling winning this, particularly away from home.'
