Jersey have won the traditional 50-overs fixture in the Inter-Insular trophy against Guernsey at KGV fields on 31st Aug 2019. The 50-overs format made a comeback after it was last played in 2017, while the 2018 edition was held in the T20 format for preparations towards T20 World Cup European sub-regional qualifiers.
The match was also the final game for Guernsey head coach Ashley Wright, who now joins up with Sussex cricket club, where his younger brother Luke Wright is an active player in the English domestic circuit.
Corey Bisson and Nick Greenwood, who were the star performers during Jersey’s series against Netherlands “A” recently, were the major contributor’s in their 5-wicket win in the game. Batting first, Guernsey were bowled out for 194, as Jersey spinners Rhys Palmer (4/32) and Dom Blampied (3/39) were the wreckers-in-chief’s after Matt Stokes guided the Guernsey’s innings with 74. Jersey’s revised target was set to 177 in 40 overs after the rain interruption.
Jersey’s next International assignment will be in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Global Qualifiers in UAE in Oct/Nov 2019, and it needs to be seen if they schedule practice tours/matches to prepare for the tournament.
Guernsey 194 all out in 49.5 overs (Matt Stokes 74, Tim Ravenscroft 25, Josh Butler 20, Ben Ferbrache 19, Rhys Palmer 4/32, Dom Blampied 3/39, Elliott Miles 1/26, Charles Perchard 1/35) lost to Jersey 179/5 in 32.2 overs (Corey Bisson 57, Nick Greenwood 53, Nick Ferraby 23, Anthony Hawkins-Kay 22 n.o, William Peatfield 3/41, Tom Kirk 1/23, Luke le Tissier 1/40) by 5 wickets
