Jersey are 3/112 off 13. That's not too bad.
They did pull it back, but the commentators were shaking their head at the field placements. A couple of head high full tosses and a guy nearly getting his teeth knocked out going for a catch were some of the lowlights.

60k stadium in Perth, yet the SCG still gets a semi final
I don’t even remember making this thread
But I do remember feeling shafted last time
And a few years and a new stadium later ... still shafted . My cricket apathy continues :(

Associate cricket is funny. Singapore upset Scotland two days ago but now they need 9 an over to beat Bermuda, who only scored 89 against Papua New Guinea the other day

Jersey now in with a great shot of making the top 4 after UAE collapse from 60/0 to 112 all out 😳
Its sad that I have even the slightest bit of intrigue into the legitimacy of results surrounding the UAE given the fixing scandal that came out pre-tournament.

Its genuinely a lottery on who will qualify at the moment. Good luck trying to predict results.

I enforce naivety on myself and view them as is. My thought is that it’s easy enough to not chase 147 without getting off to a flyer then falling in a dismal heap

Just turned on to see Rizwan Cheema have his stumps destroyed. I remember him facing Brett Lee at the 2011 World Cup and seeing the same thing. He might need to work on that.

Bermuda are out of the running, but if Kenya beats Singapore it make Group A very interesting. Group B may also be close, but it'll be with one less team as Nigeria and HK both look poor.

A great bit of fielding by Nitish Kumar has started a mini collapse for Ireland v Canada. They're in some bother.

He still around? He must be nearing 40 by now

I know Hong Kong is very open but it is strange to watch 11 ex pats playing for a country of birth. The captain sounded like he was from the UK lol ..

Ireland are deadset on the edge of making it! Lol

Most of the side is either Hong Kong born or arrived there with their parents as children.

Hong Kong surprisingly got themselves back in it after this, and although they have a poor NRR, they finish with Nigeria whilst UAE get Canada
