After running Italy close in the first game of the day at College Field, Croatia gave a scare to hosts Guernsey in the second game, Guernsey winning by just three wickets with one over to spare.

Guernsey put Croatia in after winning the toss, and the Croatian innings started with a 43 run opening partnership between Paul Vujnovich and Christopher Pivac before Pivac was dismissed by Jeremy Frith for 16.

Vujnovich was next out when he was run out for 25, but Croatia didn't really capitalise on that opening partnership, and scored 97-7 from their 20 overs. Tim Ravenscroft was the pick of the bowlers with 2-13.

That should have been an easy run chase for Guernsey, but their innings started poorly when both openers were removed with the score on four.

Skipper Stuart Le Prevost then set about rebuilding the innings with a patient 34, but when he was sixth out with the score on 65, Guernsey were staring down the barrel of an upset defeat.

A 29 run partnership for the seventh wicket steadied the ship though, and Guernsey eventually secured the win with one over to spare.

Croatia will play Norway and Gibraltar tomorrow, whilst Guernsey will play Austria and Italy.
