    BCB is a joke.Coach Moores departure was another sad day for Bermuda. BCBs in ability to maintain good coaches is a joke. Its not the coaches that are losing the games . Its the lack of forsight to realize that these professional coaches that we invite to train our teams were used to training full time committed cricketers were they get respect from both the players and countries that invite them their. Not the way that Bermuda operates towards them. Bermudas cricketers are often involved in soccer also making them a jack of all trades but a master of none. The youth programs should be the main focus in rebuilding our cricket in Bermuda.But we need coaches who have played in professional teams at high levels of cricket who know first hand what types of sacrifice is demanded from players who wish to achieve this level.We presently have none just old hasbeens who never achieved anything in global international cricket. Cup match players ,former league players don't live up to present international coaching standards especially in experience.BCB has too many sheep in wolves clothing getting paid for no results!
