    Jersey’s unbeaten run in T20 World Cup qualifier comes to an end against Germany”

    Jersey Women’s Cricket Team Suffers Defeat Against Germany In The ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifier

    The Jersey women’s cricket team suffered a disappointing nine-wicket loss to the German team during their first match in the European Division Two qualifier for the ICC (International Cricket Council) Women’s T20 World Cup. The game took place on Tuesday, and it was held at La Manga Club, Cartagena, Spain.

    Jersey Recovers From A Dreadful Start With An Impressive Seventh-Wicket Partnership

    The islanders began badly as they lost their top five batters for just twenty runs when they went into bat. However, Annalise Merritt and Grace Wetherall steadied things up by creating an impressive seventh-wicket partnership of one hundred and one runs with a superb innings display that guided Jersey from an unlikely position of twenty-six for six to a respectable total score of one hundred and twenty-one runs.

    Germany Makes Easy Work Of Chase And Clinches Victory

    The Germans were able to restrict Jersey from scoring too many runs thanks mainly to Anuradha Doddaballapur’s magnificent bowling performance which saw her take three wickets while conceding only twelve runs from her four overs. Emma Bargna also impressed with two wickets while conceding only nine runs from three overs. As a result, none of the islander’s first five batters scored more than five runs each.

    Germany’s Warwickshire batter Christina Gough hit seventy not out as Germany reached one hundred and twenty-two for the loss of only one wicket in just eighteen point four overs. The result meant that Jersey suffered their first defeat, and they face Turkey later on Tuesday in their third game at the event.

    Promotion To Europe Division One Still Up For Grabs

    The top two sides from the six-team tournament will win promotion to Europe Division One later this year; hence, despite losing their opening match, Jersey can still progress if they perform well during their remaining matches.


    In conclusion, it was a disappointing start for Jersey women’s cricket team after suffering a heavy defeat to Germany during the Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifier. Nevertheless, with more games left to play in the competition, there is still hope for them to bounce back and secure a place in Europe Division One.
