Jersey have beaten Kenya by seven wickets in Abu Dhabi in the first of two official warm-ups ahead of the T20 World Cup Qualifier.

Captain Chuggy Perchard starred with the ball, taking 4-13 as his side restricted their opponents to 127-6 from their 20 overs.

Jonty Jenner then top scored with 47 from 29 balls as Jersey reached their target with more than six overs to spare at the Zayed Cricket Stadium.

Ben Stevens (32) and Harrison Carlyon (23) also made contributions with the bat, while Anthony Hawkins-Kay and Dom Blampied picked up the other two wickets.

Neil MacRae's side have one more warm-up to come - against Singapore on Tuesday - before their tournament opener with Nigeria - who were well beaten by Bermuda today - on Saturday.

Jersey also face Canada, hosts UAE, Hong Kong, Ireland, and Oman in Group B, with six spots at next year's T20 World Cup up for grabs from the 14-team event.
