Cricket Europe article:

Croatia decide to bat first against Guernsey and at 76 for two looked set for a competitive total against the hosts. However, the introduction of left-arm spinner Jeremy Frith into the attack brought about a very rapid decline in their fortunes as they collapsed to 116 all out, with Frith claiming four wickets for just 18 runs in his ten over spell. Paul Vujnovich top scored for Croatia with 33 but once he had departed none of the Croatian batsmen could get to grips with the slow bowler with only Ivan Bilic at number ten reaching double figures.

Matt Oliver soon departed when Guernsey batted, leg before to Chris Pivac. Lee Savident and Jeremy Frith then combined in a free-scoring partnership of 114 to see Guernsey within a few runs of victory when Frith became another lbw victim, this time to Jeff Grzinic. Savident ended up on 63 not out, which included eleven boundaries, while Frith made 38 from 65 deliveries.
