Tight finish ahead at Pepsi ICC Europe U19 Division 2
Wed, Jul 30, 2014 4:45 PM
Pepsi ICC Europe U19 Division 2 has offered up some excellent cricket and some closely contested games over the opening three days. Staged in Essex, the tournament has been spread across seven different venues, including the Essex University Cricket Ground, Colchester Cricket Club and Frinton-on-Sea Cricket Club.
Jersey and Netherlands currently boast 100% records, having won both of their games, with the Netherlands amassing a huge 510 runs in the process.
There have been some standout individual performances throughout the week. Jonty Jenner smashed 120 off 75 balls as Jersey beat Guernsey by 120 runs. The Netherlands utilised 8 bowlers as they skittled out both Italy and Denmark, with Asief Hoseinbaks picking up 4 wickets against the Danes.
Yet, with two days of play remaining there is still plenty at stake which should provide some high quality 50 over entertainment on Thursday and Friday. The winner and runner-up will be promoted to Pepsi ICC Europe U19 Division 1 which will take place in 2015.
