A polished Jersey bowling and fielding performance helped them to a crushing 8-wicket victory against Belgium in Group B at Farmers.

Having won the toss and fielding for the third game in a row, Jersey started strongly and reduced Belgium to 13-2 in the 4th over. Belgium then lost wickets at regular intervals
with Jersey holding some good catches. Tony Carlyon took two in the deep, one to dismiss the captain Wagener and the other to remove Shahid Muhammad, whilst Ryan Driver clung on to a great catch diving forward at deep square leg to dismiss Farmiloe.

At 42-7 it looked like Belgium might be rolled over for less than 50 but some determined lower-order hitting from wicket-keeper Ali Raza, who made 17 in 7 balls, helped Belgium towards respectability, eventually finishing 85 all out in 18.5 overs.

In response Jersey never looked in danger as Ryan Driver hit 26 off 16 balls, including three 4s and a six, whilst opener Ed Farley made 36 off 26 balls, including back-to-back sixes to finish the game.

Jersey are now 2 points clear at the top of Group B and have all but secured a place in the semi-finals.
