Chloe Greechan: The left arm seamer from Jersey was the pick of the bowlers in the first match against France when she scalped 2-13 in four overs. She opened the bowling and bowled well with the new ball.
Charlie Miles: The right handed opening batter of Jersey led the run chase with an unbeaten 39 off 32 balls to steer her side to a seven wicket win over France in the first match. She played some good looking shots, including five boundaries in her innings.
