Jersey retain the Olivier Dubaut Trophy!

Despite the weathers best efforts, Jersey were successful in retaining the Oliver Dubaut trophy this weekend.


The weather forced no play on Saturday although players took part in an indoor round robin competition and enjoyed the opportunity to play some form of cricket.


Conditions on Sunday were much improved and Jersey elected
to bat first in a 30 over game at Les Quennevais. Vallois and Smith opened the batting for Jersey in a positive fashion before Vallois was dismissed in the 5th
Over and Smith being forced to retire hurt shortly after when looking comfortable at the crease on 19. This brought Leerson (23) and Dunning to the crease who worked the ball well and ran positively between wickets to put Jersey in a strong position.

The lower order failed to make a significant contribution and Jersey finished 155-8 from their allotted 30 overs. Dunning(59*) with an unbeaten half century.


Sharon Whiting & Alize Bodet were the pick of the French bowlers, finishing with figures of 3-22 and 4-21 respectively from their six overs spells.


Whiting & Costaz opened the batting for France and were solid in defence, Costaz scoring well before being dismissed to a ball that kept low on 15.

A bowling change worked well for Jersey with Leerson & McGuire bowling well with little width at both ends. Pressure took its toll and a mix up between batters saw the next wicket fall to a smart piece of fielding. Unfortunately for France wickets continued to fall and runs dried up as the team finished all out in the 26th over with the score on 64.


Hill, McGuire & Lee all picking up 2 wickets a piece. Leerson being the stand out bowler with figures of: 5 overs, 2 maidens, 3 wickets for 4 runs.


Jersey retained the trophy and are now working hard ahead of a European T20 tournament in Utrecht at the end of the month.


Captain Gemma Dunning said ‘I am delighted to have won our first game on home soil, we did the basics well and I thought we performed well in all areas.

France is a much improved side from last year and we hope they
will continue to develop and grow over the next 12 months. We are already
looking forward to a visit to France in the 2013 season’
