Scotland’s attack ran through Jersey at Grainville on Wednesday in a match that resulted in a six-wicket victory for the Scots and which was all over by lunchtime.

Harry Carlyon elected to bat first after winning the toss, but on a pitch which gave plenty of assistance to the seamers he must have regretted this decision as the Scottish new-ball pairing of Oliver Brown and Ihtesham Malik quickly reduced his side to 21 for four.

Brown’s five-over spell yielded three wickets at a cost of 12 runs, earning him the Player of the Match award, while off-spinner Haroon Tahir took three for 9 as the Jersey collapse continued.

David Bourne made a dogged 45-ball 13, but only he and opener Chris Thompson reached double figures as their side was dismissed for 58 in the space of 22.3 overs.

When the Scots replied they in their turn found batting tricky, and their strategy of aggressive counter-attack saw Jersey’s opening bowlers quickly pick up four wickets, three of them for Dan Birrell.

Rory Johnston, however, joined Finlay McCreath with 23 still needed, and these two picked off the runs without taking an unnecessary risks, finishing the game off in the 14th over.
