    why the heel has terryn fray been playin all this time and they had fiqre out there? why take a man like terryn fray that bats really slow if you want him to number 8. I think he is an outstanding talent but this form of the game does not suit him. hollis is a better t20 player than fray although fray is a better over cricketer.

    on another note it will be very interesting to see the bermuda national team play against a bermuda select once they return to the island.. my money will be on the select team. bermuda’s best cricketers cant travel with the team cause most of them will fail the drug test. an example of this is when barbados cam to bermuda and hammered the national team then lost to a bermuda select team. lets see that match happen.

    Please save Bermuda from further embarrassment and bring the team home. Invoke a self-ban from all international tornaments. Only friendlies in Bermuda if opponents want to fly in for RnR and practice games with our boys……surely the funds used over the last few years have come to naught….spoilt boys, showing up late for training, or not showing up at all, picking fights with the coaches and general bad attitudes of non-committment and lack-lusture performance should be expelled from future development programs.
