2016 ICC World Cricket League Division Five

The 2016 ICC World Cricket League Division Five was an international cricket tournament that took place in Jersey during May 2016.[1] It formed part of the 2012–18 cycle of the World Cricket League (WCL). The Jersey Cricket Board were awarded the hosting rights in October 2015, with the Nigeria Cricket Federation the only other bidder.[2]

The competition's final was played at the Grainville Cricket Ground in Saint Saviour, with Jersey defeating Oman by 44 runs. Both teams were promoted to the 2016 Division Four tournament.[3]

Teams

Six teams qualified for the tournament:

In March 2016 Suriname withdrew from the tournament due to an ICC investigation about the eligibility of some of their players.[4][5] At least six players had doubts raised regarding their eligibility, including the Division Six tournament's man of the series, Gavin Singh and the leading wicket-taker, Muneshwar Patandin.[6] Vanuatu were named as their replacement.[6]

Match officials

For the fixture between Oman and Nigeria on 22 May, Sue Redfern was one of the standing umpires, while Jacqueline Williams was the third umpire. It was the first time two female umpires had officiated in a men's match in an ICC tournament.[8]

Preparation

Vanuatu played warm-up matches against Denmark and the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) in London. After continuing on to Jersey, the team also played a final warm-up match against Oman, before the start of the tournament proper.[9] Guernsey played a series of warm-up matches in Sussex, England, including two against a Netherlands A side.[10]
