‘France next up for unbeaten Sarnians’    by Aaron Scoones

Guernsey made it two wins in two days in the ICC European Division Two Championship with victory over Germany yesterday. On Monday the island side had few problems in taking care of Gibraltar at Port Soif. They followed this up 24 hours later with an eight-wicket win over Germany at the College Field.

Lee Savident appeals                     ICC/CricketEurope

‘Played two and won two,’ said Guernsey manager Dave Hearse. ‘Hopefully we can kick on and get something serious out of this tournament.’ The rain played havoc with yesterday’s proceedings. At one point the teams were off the field for two hours and had an early lunch as the heavens opened. Germany had won the toss and batted first. With the rain interruptions their innings was reduced to 45 overs and in the face of some excellent Guernsey bowling and fielding, their low total of 121 all out was recalculated by the Duckworth-Lewis method to 116.

In reply Lee Savident, with 46 runs, and Jeremy Frith, 41 not out, saw the Sarnians home. ‘Very pleased and for the first time in a long time it was a good all-round performance,’ said Hearse. The rain also had an effect on yesterday’s two other matches in the tournament. At Port Soif, Jersey also got their second win on the bounce when they beat France by 67 runs. Meanwhile at the KGV the day witnessed its closest game as division debutants Croatia fell five runs short of Gibraltar’s total of 157. The Croatians looked gutted afterwards as they came so near to notching their first Division Two victory.

Guernsey also remain unbeaten after they recorded a straightforward victory over Germany at College Field.

Having won the toss, Germany batted first but found runs hard to come by against a disciplined Guernsey attack. Lee Savident dismissed both openers as Germany slumped to 48 for four wickets. Satyanarayana Srinivas helped initiate a recovery so that Germany improved to 99 for six – however a rain interruption soon afterwards caused the match to be reduced to 45 overs per side. On the resumption the German tail collapsed to an all out total of just 121 – which meant that Guernsey’s target (adjusted according to the Duckworth Lewis method) was just 117. Savident and Jamie Nussbaumer both took three wickets for Guernsey.

Jeremy Frith                             ICC/CricketEurope

Although Matt Oliver fell early, Savident and Jeremy Frith batted carefully to ensure that Guernsey would have no problems in overhauling their target. They put on 73 before Savident fell to Bhatti for 42 from 63 balls but Tim Ravenscroft joined Frith to see Guernsey safely home without further loss. Frith ended up unbeaten on 41 from 115 balls as Guernsey won with almost 12 overs to spare.
