‘Reds too hot to handle as the old rivalry returns’

By Gareth Le Prevost       Guernsey Press      24th May 2022

THE professionalism, efficiency and skill of Jersey cricketers has only seemed to increase after three years without inter-insular matches. Another whitewash in the three-match T201 Inter-Insular Cup series in Guernsey over the weekend saw Chuggy Perchard’s men retain the trophy in almost ruthless fashion against hosts who showed some promise, but are only really at the start of a journey their visitors have been navigating for several years. As Sarnian skipper Josh Butler said: ‘For quite a few years they’ve done very well and are used to winning cricket games. They always find a way, as good teams do. ‘We’re not quite there yet. We will hopefully get there, we are always looking to improve. ‘One of our big things going into this weekend was “where do we improve and what do we take from this weekend?”. ‘There are some positive signs for us going to Finland.’

Jersey set the tone for the weekend in Friday evening’s opening game at the College Field where they eased to a 37-run victory and showed why 16 places separate the ‘nations’ in the ICC T201 rankings. After winning the toss and opting to bowl, Guernsey captain Josh Butler will have been disappointed with the amount of four-balls his attack served up in the powerplay and the visitors were ruthless in the way they cashed in. In Matt Stokes’ first over Nick Greenwood found the rope on three occasions with one punch through the covers followed by a clip off his legs and he finished off with a sumptuous straight drive. The Reds were on their way and Harrison Carlyon was quickly joining in the fun against Will Peatfield with his own imitation of Greenwood’s earlier forceful shot through the off-side before he was onto a short-pitched delivery in a flash and depositing it for six. Teenage debutant Ben Johnson nearly got off to a dream start but was unable to clinch on to an awkward return catch in his follow through off Greenwood and the left-arm seamer rapidly found out the hard way that chances have to be taken at this level otherwise you will be made to pay. The Jersey openers went on to put on 50 for the first wicket before Guernsey eventually made the breakthrough in the final over of the powerplay as Carlyon was unable to clear Ben Ferbrache off the older Stokes brother. Once able to spread the field, the home side began to stem the flow of runs and pick up a few more wickets. Greenwood was bowled by Ant Stokes for a quality 48 midway through the innings and Jonty Jenner did not last long, hitting the left-arm spinner to his brother Matt on the deep-cover boundary. Asa Tribe, who gave a glimpse of why he is so highly-rated across the water, followed two balls later for a run-a-ball 19 and the Greens were well back in the game. In the final eight overs of the innings, though, momentum swung once again as Julius Sumerauer and Dom Blampied put on a fifth-wicket stand of 84 that proved decisive. Sumerauer played the starring role in the partnership, making 54 from just 32 balls with some sweet timing that saw him almost effortlessly clear the ropes on three occasions among his five boundaries. Blampied was happy to give his young partner the strike, chipping in with a useful 22 as Jersey racked up 178. That was always going to be a stern test for the Guernsey batters and, noticeably, they did not get the helping hand from loose balls in the powerplay that the Reds had. Instead, Carlyon rattled through his four miserly overs in double-quick time, removing the hosts’ top three in the process. Luke Le Tissier appeared to have been caught behind in the third over but the ball had actually clipped the bail and bowled him. Zak Damarell looked in good nick with a couple of fours and a six in his 20 before Carlyon rushed the final delivery of his third over through the left-hander and he then claimed the big wicket of the skipper, leg before attempting to sweep. As with the first innings of the game, though, Guernsey had a promising spell with the bat as well. Unsurprisingly, Matt Stokes was right at the centre of it as he managed to make scoring runs look relatively easy with some glorious strokes, particularly a couple of pick-ups off the pace of Sumerauer that kept the crowd both entertained and on their guard. He received good support from Ferbrache as they added 58 before the latter top-edged one to short third-man off Elliot Miles. However, it took something sensational to remove Stokes, who had made 48 from just 27 balls, in the following over with a flying Dan Birrell providing it as he pulled off a ‘worldie’ in the covers, diving full-length to his left and clinging on to a tough chance with one hand to give Chuggy Perchard the vital wicket. After that, Jersey turned the screw with wicketkeeper Jake Dunford taking a catch that on any other day would have been the best of the game to dismiss Ant Stokes, who was attempting to hook a Sumerauer bouncer, before Jersey’s captain added the scalp of Tom Nightingale. Peatfield struck a couple of crisp boundaries at the death to give the crowd something to cheer, but the match had long since gone.
