Wins for Guernsey & Nigeria on rain affected Day 1 of ICC World Cricket League Division 5

Vanuatu v Guernsey

An all-round effort from Matthew Stokes helped Guernsey secure a nervy five-run win via the D/L method against Vanuatu at St Clement.

Guernsey, winning the toss and fielding first, did well to restrict Vanuatu to 127 for 7 in the allotted 26 overs after rain reared its head. Jonathan Dunn made a patient 42, while Patrick Matautaava and Nalin Nipiko chipped in with some quick runs. But Vanuatu kept losing wickets at regular intervals, with Stokes, David Hooper and Thomas Kirk picking up two each.

The chase proved to be tricky for Guernsey. Andrew Mansale gave the side a real fright, snapping up 4 for 19, including the wicket of Stokes, who top-scored with a run-a-ball 34. Nipiko grabbed two wickets too, but Guernsey was 105 for 6 in 21 overs, just ahead in the D/L calculations, when rain returned for good.

Jersey v Oman

An exciting game in St Saviour between ICC World Twenty20 2016 qualifier Oman and host Jersey turned into a damp squib as rain played spoilsport. The match will start afresh on Monday, the reserve day for the fixture.

After electing to field, Jersey restricted Oman to 132 for 9 in a 23-overs-a-side affair and was 48 for 1 in nine overs before the heavens opened up. Jonty Jenner fell after scoring 23, but Peter Gough remained unbeaten on 18.

During the Oman innings, Zeeshan Maqsood (29), Vaibhav Wategaonkar (26) and Jatinder Singh (24) all got a start, but were unable to make it count as Charles Perchard and Rhys Palmer snapped up three wickets apiece.


 

Nigeria v Tanzania

In a match that was reduced to 28-overs-a-side at St Martin, Nigeria rode on Ademola Onikoyi's unbeaten 68 off 75 balls to complete a six-wicket win against Tanzania with 19 balls to spare.

Tanzania opted to bat first after winning the toss, but could only manage 115 for 8, with Kassim Nassoro top-scoring with 30. Wickets fell in clumps, Sesan Adedeji causing the most trouble as he finished with figures of 3 for 14 in five overs.

Nassoro then struck twice in Tanzania's chase, but Onikoyi remain unflustered and saw the side through.
