Great day watching 2 T20 final European qualifiers for next year’s World Cup. Jersey beat Germany in a fine run chase. Italy comfortably beat Denmark.

Italy had a few ringers, e.g. Durnbach and a couple county players. And they are favourites to win the round Robin.
Did Gareth Berg play? In fairness to him, he's been playing for Italy for a while. They also have Jamie Grassi who played in the Irish Inter-Provincials this year. (standard probably somewhere between first XI and second XI cricket in the county game)

Berg played and finished 12 not out. Grassi was out for 13.

Decent result for Ireland today. Very good with the ball. He may have only had ordinary figures today but Ben White is a good prospect as a leggie. Put in some good performances in the Irish inter-pros this summer.

Are West Indies having a stinker, or are England bowling well? Or has this pitch got demons in it?

I don’t think anyone saw 49-9 as likely.

If Scotland win one match in the Super 12's then I think their campaign will be viewed as a success regardless of what happens in the other matches. And other teams will be made to look daft by the Afghan spinners who are likely to prosper greatly on these pitches.
