Seam bowler Charles Perchard has been named as the captain of the 14-member Jersey squad for the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup Challenge League Group B tournament, which is slated to take place from December 2 to December 12, 2019 in Oman.
Jersey will compete with Uganda, Hong Kong, Italy, Kenya and Bermuda in Challenge League Group B over a three-year cycle of 15 matches.
Reflecting on the squad, Jersey head coach Neil MacRae said that the team is looking forward to make a strong start in the 50-over tournament.
“Following recent strong performances in the ICC Global T-20 tournament in Abu Dhabi, the squad will now switch their focus to 50 over cricket and will be determined to make a strong start to the ICC Challenge League Group B in Oman,” the ICC quoted MacRae as saying.
The Challenge League Group B is the first of three qualifying rounds for the ICC 50-over Cricket World Cup in 2023.
Jersey will begin their campaign against Uganda on December 2.
The full squad is as follows:
Charles Perchard (c), Daniel Birrell, Corey Bisson, Dominic Blampied, Harrison Carlyon, Jake Dunford, Nick Greenwood, Jonty Jenner, Elliot Miles, Rhys Palmer, William Robertson, B Stevens, Julius Sumerauer and Nathaniel Watkins
