Jersey became the first team - male or female - to score a century partnership for the seventh wicket in a T20I today against Germany, but the match still ended in defeat for the home team.

Batting first, they found themselves firmly on the backfoot on 20-6 before Analise Merritt and Grace Wetherall put on an unbroken 101 to take the total to 121-7. Merritt scored 45 whilst Wetherall contributed 57 from 40 balls, the first half-century at 8 or lower in the order to score over 50 in a women's T20I.

Anuradha Doddaballapur was the pick of Germany's bowlers with 3-12, and she formed part of the winning partnership for the visitors. After Anne Bierwisch fell for just 4, Doddaballapur and Tina Gough put on 97 to secure a nine wicket win. Doddaballapur scored 38 whilst Gough scored 70.

In the afternoon game, Jersey bowled Turkey out for just 52 - another low score by the inexperienced Turkish side, although two players reached double figures this time. Erin Gouge was the pick of the bowlers with 3-6. Jersey had no trouble chasing their target, reaching it in 6 overs to win by 9 wickets.

Sweden were the other team to play twice today, coming up against France in the morning match. Ines Mckeon scored 94 from 65 balls for the French as they scored 149-5 from their 20 overs. Gunjan Shukla top scored with 31 in the Swedish reply but they were kept to 101-8, losing by 48 runs.

In the afternoon, Italy scored 134-5 against the Swedes with Chathurika Mahamalage contributing an unbeaten 53. Anya Vaidya scored 51 in the Swedish reply but no other batter was able to reach double figures as Sweden were bowled out for 98, losing by 36 runs.

Wednesday will be a rest day before Germany and France take their turn to play twice on Thursday. Germany will take on Italy in the morning and Sweden in the afternoon whilst France play Turkey in the morning and Jersey in the afternoon.
