Jersey will not be hosting a Cricket World Cup qualifying event this year with travel restrictions forcing the host venue to change.

The island was due to host Bermuda, Hong Kong, Italy, Kenya and Uganda at the start of September.

The Challenge League B competition will now be played in Hong Kong in December.

The news comes as the inter-insular contest between Jersey and Guernsey has also been pushed back to 11 September.
