Career[edit]

Borchersen played for Denmark Under-19s in the 1997 International Youth Tournament in Bermuda, making his debut for the team against the Netherlands Under-19s.[2] His senior debut for Denmark also came in 1997, in a minor match against Scotland.[2] He later played for the team in the 1998 Under-19 World Cup, making his Youth One Day International (YODI) debut against Ireland Under-19s. He made five further YODI appearances during the tournament, the last of which came against Namibia Under-19s.[3] His next appearance for Denmark came in 2003, in a minor match against Ireland.[2] Two years later he was selected in Denmark's squad for the 2005 ICC Trophy in Ireland. The International Cricket Council afforded List A status to these matches, with Borchersen making his debut in that format against Uganda. He made six further List A appearances during the tournament, the last of which came against Namibia.[4][5] He took 11 wickets during the tournament at an average of 23.18, with best figures of 3/29.[6] With the bat, he scored 60 runs at a batting average of 10.00, with a high score of 23.[7]

The following year, he played in the 2006 European Championship Division One, making a single appearance in the tournament against Ireland.[2] In 2007, he toured Kenya, playing two matches against a Kenya Select XI and a Coast Cricket Association XI.[2] Later that year, he was selected as part of Denmark's squad for the World Cricket League Division Two in Namibia,[8] making four List A appearances.[5] He scored 36 runs with the bat with a top score of 15.[9] With the ball, he took 4 wickets at an average of 26.25, with best figures of 2/29.[10] In 2008, he played in the European Championship Division One in Ireland, making two appearances against Scotland and Norway.[2] In 2009, he was selected in Denmark's squad for the World Cup Qualifier in South Africa,[11] where he made seven List A appearances, including his final appearance to date in that format, against Oman.[5] He scored 99 runs during the tournament at average of 19.80, with a high score of 36 not out.[12] With the ball, he took 7 wickets at an average of 32.00, with best figures of 4/43.[13] Denmark finished the tournament in twelfth and last place, therefore failing to qualify for the 2011 World Cup. Since his List A debut for Denmark in 2005, Borchensen had made eighteen appearances in that format, scoring 195 runs at an average of 13.00,[14] while with the ball he took 22 wickets at an average of 26.54.[15]

Borchensen played for Denmark in the 2010 European Championship Division One.[2] In 2011, he was selected in Denmark's squad for the 2011 ICC World Cricket League Division Three tournament in Hong Kong,[16] making three appearances during the tournament against Italy, the United States and Hong Kong.[2] This was the last time to date that he has represented Denmark at any level.
