Jeremy Frith continued his fine form for Guernsey scoring 82 to help the Channel Island to its total of 212 against WCL Div. 7 and 8 winners Kuwait. Apart from Frith, Lee Savident contributed 29 runs but the middle order didn't contribute as much as it has in the past for the Guernsey side.

Sibtain Raza proved to be the pick of the Kuwaiti bowlers, claiming four wickets including that of Savident and top order batsman Tim Ravenscroft while Saad Khalid once again showed his worth with three scalps to his name.

In reply, it looked like plain sailing for the strong Kuwaiti batting line-up, Irfan Bhatti opening for the Kuwaitis and contributing 66 to the score before departing to the bowling of GH Smit.

The innings however belonged to James Nussbaumer whose fine bowling saw the 24-year-old fast bowler claim five wickets for just 35 runs. A lower order batting collapse saw the opposition fail to reach the required target, needing just 15 runs, with two overs to go and two wickets in hand, Guernsey had other ideas as Nussbaumer and Stuart Le Prevost ran-out the last two men in the Kuwait side.

The right-armed Nussbaumer dismissed both Azmatullah Nazeer and Mohammed Amin in a matter of a few overs before running-out Saad Khalid to have the side flailing at 199-9 and with that all was lost as Le Prevost ran out Abdullah Akhunzada and sealed another victory for the in-form side.

Man of the match Nussbaumer said: 'I bowled with intent because we knew the guys top of the order batted well and we had to restrict them when it came to scoring runs. I think things worked particularly well for me today when it came down to the Power Plays and I made sure I bowled my Yorkers and made it hard for them and it paid off.

'In regards to chasing down our total, they batted sensibly taking their time and I think they had 115 up off 20 overs or so and with eight or nine wickets in hand they thought they had the game in easy reach. They were slow to start but credit has to be given to them they were in control until we managed to start taking wickets regularly.

'Their spinners definitely bowled well today against our batting line-up and tired us out a bit before we reached our total of 212, which I think was a competitive score but we should have got more in hindsight. I think they made it hard for us out there today and when we had them seven or eight down and we managed to run their last couple of guys out you had the feeling they were just going for the runs with all they had left in them.'
