Hove is in sight

BARRING a very improbable set of results today in Sussex, Guernsey will be through to Saturday’s prestige semi-finals of the ICC European T20 Championships at the county ground, Hove.
After thrashing Gibraltar yesterday afternoon to register a third win in four group A games, Guernsey were two points clear of the Austrians with just one round of qualifying matches remaining.
In those, Nic Pothas’s largely inexperienced side take on the Swedes, who lie bottom of the table, while the Austrians play Italy, who have won four from four, including yesterday’s 29-run victory over the Sarnians.
At the day’s end Pothas spoke highly of his side and said he was not at all surprised to be in charge of a team on the verge of the semis.
