As of 13 September 2015

The Jersey national cricket team is the team that represents the Bailiwick of Jersey, a Crown dependency in international cricket. They became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2005, and an associate member in 2007.[1]

They are in Division Four of the World Cricket League as of 2018.

In April 2018, the ICC decided to grant full Twenty20 International (T20I) status to all its members. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between Jersey and other ICC members after 1 January 2019 will be a full T20I.[2]

History[edit]

Jersey first played international cricket against neighbouring Channel Island of Guernsey in the inaugural Inter-insular match in 1957. The match was drawn, Jersey eventually picking up their first win in 1960. They won ten of the matches in a row between 1992 and 2001, before a run of five consecutive victories for Guernsey until 2006.[3]

Jersey became an affiliate member of the ICC in 2005,[1] and took part in Division Two of the European Championship in Scotland in 2006, losing to Norway in the final.[4] The following March, they beat Italy in a three match series that they had to win to be promoted to associate membership of the ICC.[5] They were granted associate status at an ICC meeting at Lord's in June.[6]

In August, Jersey won the inter-insular by 4 runs to end Guernsey's run of wins,[7] but lost the first inter-insular Twenty20 match in September by five wickets.[8]

In September 2018, Jersey qualified from Group B of the 2018–19 ICC World Twenty20 Europe Qualifier to the Regional Finals of the tournament.[12]
