Cricket made its return to Jersey on Sunday with Farmers CC staging the first match played in the island this summer under new Covid regulations.

Strict hygiene and distancing measures saw the umpires step aside during bowlers' run-ups and the ball sanitised between overs.

The game itself was an in-house friendly with the club's over-20s taking victory over their under-20s on the last ball of the T20 match.

It follows the island's move to the next level of its lockdown exit on Friday, which allows for training and modified match action to be played in groups of up to 40 people.

The Jersey Cricket Board is also set to stage two trial games, on the 20 June and 23 June, with a view to domestic league cricket starting on the first weekend of July.

Guernsey Cricket is also planning to begin league action soon, possibly as early as the end of this month, after staging a successful exhibition match under different playing conditions.
