Videos/Results: Bermuda vs Oman & USA

October 31, 2016

Bermuda has started competition in the ICC WCL Division 4 in Los Angeles, with their first two matches against the USA and Oman.

The ICC match report said, “Bermuda slid to its second loss in a row in the ICC WCL Division 4, going down to Oman by four wickets at the Severn Cricket Field in Woodley Park, Los Angeles on Sunday [October 30].

“Asked to bat first, Bermuda started well with Kamau Leverock [47 in 37 balls] and Dean Minors [26 in 45] giving it a 72-run first-wicket stand. But Mohammad Nadeem, the right-arm medium pacer, changed the script with three quick strikes, reducing Bermuda to 81 for 3.

“There was resistance from Tre Manders [21 in 42] and, particularly, Steven Bremar [42 not out in 50], but with Khawar Ali [4 for 25], the leg-spinner, joining Nadeem [3 for 36] in picking up quick wickets, all Bermuda managed was 173 for 9 in its 40 overs.

“Oman lost Arun Poulose and Zeeshan Maqsood early and continued losing wickets to stutter to 119 for 6 to raise Bermuda’s hopes. But Jatinder Singh’s unbeaten 68, scored from 52 balls with nine hits to the fence, and his unbroken 55-run seventh-wicket stand with Amir Ali [20 not out in 19] took Oman past the target in 34 overs.

As far as the match vs the USA, the ICC match report said, “Timil Patel’s five-wicket haul and half-centuries from Steven Taylor and Fahad Babar helped United States of America secure an eight-wicket win over Bermuda in the ICC WCL Division 4 match at the Severn Cricket Field in Los Angeles on Saturday [October 29].

“Opting to bat, Bermuda rode on Dion Stovell’s half-century to post 201 in 48.3 overs. Although six other Bermuda batsmen got into double figures, none of them could convert their starts into big scores. Stovell, who batted at No. 4, made 56 off 88 balls, including four boundaries and two sixes.

“Patel, the legspinner, took 5 for 29 in 7.3 overs, while Jasdeep Singh’s medium pace fetched 2 for 40.

“Taylor and Babar, the openers, got USA off to a rousing start, racing to 74 in ten overs. Taylor, who brought up his half-century in 36 balls, was dismissed by Cejay Outerbridge for 56. Babar went on to score an unbeaten 70, sharing a 95-run second wicket-stand with Ravi Timbawala (41), and an unbroken 32-run third-wicket stand with Timroy Allen [18 not out]. USA thus raced to the 202-run target in just 32.4 overs.”
