KUALA LUMPUR: Jersey continued their unbeaten run when they won the ICC Cricket World League Division Five title after trouncing Malaysian by 71 runs.
Unbeaten in 12 Cricket World League matches, the side led by Peter Gough will hope to continue their winning streak in Singapore in June when they take part in the Division Four matches.
On Thursday, Jersey won the toss and elected to bat, as Gough and Nathaniel Watkins were the opening batsmen for them.
However, the team were jolted in the first over after Malaysia's Hiran Rallalange took out Jersey’s captain Gough in just three balls.
Jersey then set the tone with Watkins (116) and Ben Stevens (84) notching consecutive runs. After Watkins was taken out by Kizar Hayat Durrani, Malaysia managed to keep the runs at 247.
Kizar Hayat was the star for Malaysia, recording five wickets.
In the second innings, Jersey’s bowler did the job when they only allowed Malaysia to get 176 runs to clinch the tie and bring the title home.
Stevens deservedly won the player of the tournament after notching 403 runs and 12 wickets throughout the meet.
