    International Cricket Thread

    I feel that we could probably do with an omnibus thread for series/tournaments that don't merit their own thread.

    I'll start it with the u19 World Cup, where it looks like Nepal are about to beat New Zealand. Ireland are threatening respectability against India.

    Anyone in Florida here? India are playing West Indies in Broward County on the 3rd & 4th August (T20I games).

    So Germany won the match in 14 overs and 2 balls. Three too many.

    Agonisingly ​close but Jersey will go to the UAE in October with a NRR of 1.802 to Germany's 1.749

    Unreal this. Germany are going to get this so close.

    19 off the final over! Jersey score 134/5 thanks to that excellent partnership.

    To qualify, Germany need not just to win, but to do it at 10 an over.

    Ward hits a monster six on ball 19.2 over the pavilion.

    And good strike rates again from these two - both on 19 from 22.

    The Jersey middle order finding the boundary a couple of times. I think they will end up with enough to get to the main qualifier. Now 70/5 after 12 overs.

    Lasted 11 overs though. Mildred Anyigo the pick of the Uganda bowlers with 3 for 1.

    The Malian women may have had an even worse day today than a couple of days ago...

    Oh, that's Stevens gone then!

    Came forward for a big swing and ended up stumped.

    Jersey in a little trouble again now, a catch and a stumping later they are 47/4.

    Stevens is still out there though and he has 23 off 22 balls. As long as he is there I can't see Germany keeping the total down to something they can chase in 13 overs.

    But strong batting from the current pair with good strike rates. Five overs in, Jersey are 33/2. I think (the score board wasn't keeping up.)

    Another! Jersey 8/2... surely they can't throw away their ticket to the UAE?

    Germany won the toss and put Jersey in to bat first, so I'll delete half of the above post.

    Right, so I'm having a play with a spread sheet, as you do. Here are some possibilities.

    If Jersey bat first and make 160, Germany need to beat it in 14 overs and 1 ball.
    If Jersey bat first and make 140, Germany need to beat it in 13 overs and 5 balls.
    If Jersey bat first and make 120, Germany need to beat it in 13 overs and 3 balls.
    If Jersey bat first and make 100, Germany need to beat it in 13 overs and 0 balls.
    If Jersey bat first and make 80, Germany need to beat it in 12 overs and 4 balls.

    These above are all based on Germany beating Jersey's total by 1 run in their chase. I suppose if they got scores level then hit a six, that would buy them about 4-5 more balls.

    So in summary - if chasing, Germany need to get the job done in about 13 overs.

    If Germany don't manage this, then Jersey win the tournament and will go to the global qualifier.

    Germany win in 11.1 so it's time to get the NRR calculations done ahead of their showdown with Jersey.

    Germany look set for victory in their first match, against Norway. At 70/3 (7.1/20) needing only 100 to win.

    The commentator seems oddly worried by their drop in run rate.

    Ah - I understand! It's because of the effect on NRR, with possible qualification on the line if they hit these quickly and then beat Jersey later today!

    Jersey cruised to victory by the way, so will be pitched into the T20 World Cup qualifier.

    Population of just over 100 thousand, similar size to Glamorgan I suppose.
    Eek - looks like I've called this one game too early. Final matches being played today.

    1045: DEN v GRN and NOR v GER
    1545: DEN v ITA and GER v JER

    I think these might be rearranged fixtures from those previously abandoned, hence the double headers for Denmark and Germany. Still, can't see Jersey failing to win the tournament from here.
    Jersey 4 4 0 0 0 8 +2.673 Qualify to 2019 ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier
    Italy 4 3 1 0 0 6 0.456
    Germany 3 2 1 0 0 4 +0.860
    Denmark (E) 3 1 2 0 0 2 0.115
    Guernsey (H, E) 4 1 3 0 0 2 0.896
    Norway (E) 4 0 4 0 0 0 2.246
    If you want to watch them:

    I picked Glamorgan there purely because of its population but that comparison serves to underline how ridiculous the non-existence of a Wales cricket team is; now more than ever, since we have Channel Islands playing official T20i matches.
