Jersey have secured their spot in one of the two forthcoming global qualifiers for the 2022 T20 World Cup today after a four wicket win over Germany in a low scoring match.

Germany won the toss and chose to bat first, but it turned out to probably be the wrong decision as they struggled against the Jersey spin attack. Just three of their batters reached double figures with Dylan Blignaut's 27 the top score. Talha Khan and Venkatraman Ganesan were the other batters in double figures.

Fifteen overs were sent down by Jersey's spinners, with Ben Ward the pick of the bunch with 4-18. Germany were bowled out one ball short of their full quota having scored 85.

Jersey lost openers Harrison Carlyon and Nick Ferraby cheaply, but the next two batters - Zak Tribe and Jonty Jenner - both scored 25 to get Jersey back into the game. Jenner was the fifth man out and by then Jersey needed just 22 from the last 5.3 overs. Julius Sumeraruer got most of them before the winning run was scored via a leg bye.

The four wicket win puts Jersey on 8 points with two games still to play. Germany and Italy are on four points but as they still have to play each other, Jersey can't finish lower than second place and have thus secured their place in the next stage of qualifying. With one of those two qualifiers set for May next year, Jersey will no doubt be hoping to be one of the hosts.

Earlier in the day, Italy batted first against Denmark with openers Gian Meade and Grant Stewart putting on 92 to give the Italian innings a great platform. Stewart was the first man out having scored 51 from only 31 balls whilst Meade went on to score 43 before he was out five overs later. The final total for Italy was 141-4.

Denmark produced their best batting performance of the tournament so far in reply but still fell just short. Surya Ahmed top scored with 36 from 26 balls as Denmark scored 132-9, losing by nine runs. Gian Meade completed another good all-round performance by taking 3-18 but it was Grant Stewart who was awarded the player of the match award.

The tournament continues tomorrow with Jersey taking on Italy and Denmark playing Germany.
