What a relief

Stuart Le Prevost

Well that was quite a match for us today and all credit to Botswana who played extremely well and were an extremely nice bunch of chaps.

What a relief to be staying in Division 6 – we had a bad start to this tournament facing the hosts first and since our other two losses, I’m really pleased with how the team has turned itself around in the last two days.

Today’s match was a good game of cricket and I have to congratulate Frithy (Jeremy Frith) for another half-century and some good bowling and also credit has to go to Jamie Nussbaumer whose 4 for 42 was outstanding.

I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s game against Malaysia, it’s going to be a tough one and I’m sure they’re a bit upset having lost out on promotion to Bahrain who walloped Norway by 233 runs, so they’ll come at us hard no matter what.

I’ve really enjoyed my time in Singapore, it’s been a totally different experience and a new climate to play cricket in and tomorrow will be the culmination of a lot of hard work on and off the field for all the lads.

I’m off out tonight to celebrate our win with the team but it won’t be a late one as I’ve still got one more match to win before I head back to Guernsey to see my wife and son, which I must admit is something I’m really looking forward to doing!

    All is well that ends well. Guernsey beat Malaysia in the 3rd-4th position play-off and ended in the top 50 percent of the 6 teams.
