Europe’s battle for the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier place takes place in Jersey

Denmark, France, Guernsey, Italy, Jersey and Norway will compete in a round robin format with the top team making up the European contingent

Six of the continent’s leading teams will meet in the beautiful island of Jersey in May to take the next step on the pathway to the ICC World Twenty20 in India in 2016, with the winner gaining promotion to the ICC World Twenty20 qualifier to be staged in Ireland and Scotland in July. The top six teams from that tournament will book their tickets to India and the global spotlight.
 
Denmark, France, Guernsey, Italy, Jersey and Norway will compete in a round robin format with the top team making up the European contingent alongside Ireland, Scotland and The Netherlands at the global qualifier. Denmark and Italy will start as favourites having gained promotion to the global qualifier in previous years and boasting a higher ranking in the World Cricket League than their challengers. But while they seek to re-assert their regional dominance the other four teams will be determined to close the gap and achieve a defining milestone in their development as cricket nations by progressing to the global event.  The stakes are high, and the regional rivalries compelling.
 
Denmark boast former England quick Amjad Khan in their ranks and his pace is sure to spice up the action, while their talisman Freddie Klokker, a county championship centurion, will be in contention for top run-scorer. Italy feature a Big Bash star in Carl Sandri, and have a wealth of experience and quality in Northcote, Marage, Crowley and Petricola. 
 
The magic ingredient for T20 success is match-winning quality allied to professionalism and endeavour. In Jonty Jenner the hosts possess one of the most exciting young talents in Europe and with the dynamism and big game experience of Gough and Stevens will be confident of gaining promotion, roared on by a passionate and patriotic home crowd. Guernsey has invested in youth after the recent retirement of stalwarts such as Le Provost, Savident and Frith. But the squad is beginning to mature and acquire the experience needed to be threat at this level. The return of former Hampshire starlet Tim Ravenscroft should help.
 
France will be looking to build on recent progress and in captain Ayyavooraju have a classy and experienced captain. Norway is freshly promoted from division 2 and will be eager to demonstrate they can compete in this company. They have been dogged by inconsistency but on their day have the boundary clearing power to thrill the crowds.
 
Once again European cricket will be showcased to a global audience through ICC Europe’s partnership with QTV Sports, with daily highlights and live coverage of the final game and live scoring will be undertaken by Cric HQ.
