Carlyon stars as Jersey beat Denmark
Harry Carlyon's superb all-round performance helped Jersey record their first win of the tournament with an emphatic 8-wicket victory over Denmark at Grainville.
The Jersey skipper took 3 for 10 and then made an unbeaten 32 as the islanders made light work of their modest target.
After winning the toss, Jersey made early inroads into the Danish top order, with seamers Ed Giles (1-10), Julius Sumerauer (1-7) and Daniel Birrell (2-15) all among the wickets.
Daniel Kolbaek (16) and Sandjeev (11) attempted to repair the damage, but the Jersey spinning duo of Carlyon and Ben Ward (2-15) saw Denmark dismissed for just 59 in 29.4 overs.
A first over wicket for Oliver Hald (1-17) gave the Danes early hope, but it was to prove a false dawn as the resolute Matthew Daubeney (22) and the composed Carlyon (32*) shared a second wicket stand of 51 to all but seal the win.
Daubeney fell just before the end to Abdullah Mahmood (1-13) but it was academic by that stage.
Jersey face Ireland on Friday at FB Fields, hoping to carry this form and confidence into what will be a stern test against the group leaders.
