Ganesh Pooja: The right handed middle order batter of France top scored with 21 runs off 36 balls against Jersey in her last match. She stabilized the innings and helped her team put up a modest score on board.
Marie Violleua: The left arm seamer from France was the only successful bowler in the last match that her team played against Jersey. She scalped 2-23 in 3.3 overs. She was the lone warrior in the fight as she did not receive much support from the rest of the bowlers.
Charlie Miles: The right handed opening batter of Jersey struck a delectable half century in her last appearance against Austria. She mustered an unbeaten 57 off 59 balls to help her side post 2-167 in 20 overs.
Georgia Mallett: The right arm seamer from Jersey was the pick of the bowlers in her last outing against Austria. She scalped 3-14 in three overs. She bowled well in the middle overs and at the death overs.
The last match that was played here saw more than 250 runs being scored. The team batting first won the match. Batting looked easy in the first innings while it seemed to be difficult in the second.
