“Opting to bat first, Bermuda put up a massive 312 for 8 in 45 overs. The game was curtailed after winds brought the sightscreen down in the 15th over of Bermuda’s innings.

“In response, Jersey went after the score but couldn’t keep up with the stiff ask before being bundled out for 227 from 37.2 overs. Cejay Outerbridge was the pick of the bowlers for Bermuda, bagging 5 for 25.

    Great victory Bermuda! Also well done on the individual performances by young Cejay Outerbridge who bowled exceptional well and the blistering batting performance of Kamau “Ball Beater” Leverock who played some magnificent shots! I’m proud of the entire team who continue to prove the critics wrong. Clearly we don’t have our strongest team on tour but continue to play as one and finish the tournament on a positive note with a victory. All the best! Blessings

      The best part is that you can see the beginnings of a good nucleus that could represent Bermuda for the next 10 years easily. Let’s hope they can continue the good streak against Italy.
