Neil Paynter, President of St George’s Cricket Club, said last night he is announcing the “team that will not only retain the Cup, but win it.” Mr Paynter said the team is a well balanced team, with both all rounders and specialist bowlers.

Calling Lionel Cann the “elder statesman” of the team, he said the veteran brings the seniority to the team, and that Captain Oronde Bascome will be well supported by Vice Captain Rodney Trott – with the two not only being good friends, but having played cricket together since they were children.

To finish off our interview, Mr Paynter sent a clear message to Somerset, holding up the trophy and asking them to “come and get it”:

    Ready for another Draw…..the odds always seem to work this way in recent years. By putting my mouth on it..maybe it will jinx things into a clear result. If we went by run rate over the two days or time played beyond one innings…WE WOULD NEVER HAVE ANOTHER DRAW^^

I have told my Indian, Sri Lankan and Bang friends all about Cup Match here and they are giong for Somerset as well. Enjoy the holidays Bermuda as i miss family, friends, the atmosphere and love!

  13. Ganja Mon says:

    Both young fairly young teams with only 2 or 3 over the age of 30. Definatly a changing of the guard. Go St. geo!!! BLUE&BLUE !!!

  14. For Real says:

    Do SOMETHING to avoid the Draw. How about a new rule that if the cup is not won outright it will sit on display at city hall until it has been!! Give BOTH teams a reason play a good game and not shoot for a draw! We are tired of the constant draw; we want a winner every year no matter who wins!!
