Jersey's cricketers have beaten Nigeria by three wickets in the ICC World Cricket League Division Six.

The island side bowled out Nigeria for 110 in 32 overs with James Faudemer taking four wickets for 25 and Ben Stevens and Anthony Kay each taking three wickets in Malaysia.

Jersey reached their target in 38.4 overs as Dean Morrison hit 58 not out.

They now need a win over Fiji in their final match on Friday to retain Division Six status.

"It's definitely taken the heat off us to have another win, although we can't be complacent we have to win tomorrow to keep ourselves in with a chance in this tournament," Morrison said.
