Jersey cling on to beat Guernsey

Martin Williamson

Jersey retained the Inter-Insular Challenge Trophy with a three-wicket victory over Guernsey at Grainville.

Guernsey, who were elected to Associate status by the ICC in July, lost early wickets after winning the toss and struggled to 119 all out in 46 overs, with Jeremy Frith’s 38 the only innings of substance. Jersey found the going equally difficult, but Ryan driver followed his two wickets with an gritty unbeaten 45 to steer them home.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
